Is there any limitation when using the WP Pipes plugin?

NO, there is no limitation when using WP Pipes plugin. It’s GNU/GPL, you can download & use it for free forever.

What is a Pipe?

Let’s imagine it as a pipeline of data from one place (Source) to another place (Destination).
One Pipe will start with a Source.
On the way of each Pipe, it can pass over some or many Processors to transform its format to suit the Destination.
At the end, it will stop at a Destination.

What is a WP Pipes Source?

Pipe Source is where your Pipe begins. It can be: Posts, Pages, WooCommerce Products, RSS Feeds, Files/Folders,… the sky is unlimited 🙂

What is a WP Pipes Destination?

Pipe Destination is the end of your Pipes. It can be: RSS Feeds, Google XML Sitemap, Files/Folders, WooCommerce Products, Posts,… once again, the sky is unlimited 🙂

What is a WP Pipes Processor?

Pipe Processor is for doing some processes to get more fields for the Destination Input.
Pipe Processor will process some input fields (depends on Processor) and provide some output fields. After that, you can use those output fields for the Destination Input.

Not working with WP 6.2.2. Throws a critical error when you click anything on the plugin menu. All the pre-requisites check out fine

UPDATE: This is a nice plugin, but it has a serious flaw. Deactivating will remove all of the plugin’s data, including feeds. Deactivation is a common practice, often used to troubleshoot plugin conflicts. Other plugins retain data when deactivated and data is available again when plugin is reactivated. Not this one. Data is wiped with deactivation. Data should be removed when the plugin is “removed” not when it is deactivated. Because the potential to lose data through the deactivation process, the plugin now gets 2 stars. The Plugin This plugin is a little complicated but it works well. Instructions are written in English but not always very clear English; however, if you spend a little time with it, you will discover its variety of good features. Addon I purchased an addon at a reasonable price and with no payment problems through Paypal, but it installed itself with an improper directory name, which was annoying and required some troubleshooting all of which should have been avoided by some attention to detail by the developer. All in all, though, that was not typical of my experience with the rest of the programming which is robust and solid. Support The naming issue and some other questions required me to seek support, which is provided via a forum on the developer’s website. We live on opposite sides of the world, literally, so our opportunities to communicate simultaneously during waking hours were very limited, this caused some delays, but the developer was tenacious, polite and thorough in addressing my issues and, within a few days, they were resolved. I allowed the developer administrator access to my site as he requested for troubleshooting and he proved himself trustworthy and responsible in using it.
