Last 28th day of January was the Thank a Plugin Author Day that motivates users to thank plugin authors. The purpose of this event was simply gave thanks and express gratitude to WordPress plugin and theme developers. Visiting the plugin or theme author’s website is one of the ways to celebrate the event. The link is available via the plugin or theme’s page on WordPress.org. Another way to thank is to rate and review their work which is an easy way to send feedback directly to an author. However, one of many ways to contribute back to WordPress is the side effect of rating and reviewing plugins and themes. The WordPress theme directory has more than 2,000 themes and its plugin director has 47,000 plugins.
