    Both WooCommerce and Yoast have moved so many features that used to be free into paid addons that I now feel guilty for having ever recommended them to clients

    It feels like an aggression to them – this is already a daunting process, now they’re shaking me down for more money

    Is there a yearly subscription I can buy that gives me access to everything that I used to get for free? Because I would pay for that. Instead, I lose features I used to have and then get nickel and dimed trying to get that back.
