May sound silly, but I'd like to be clear. Anyone know? (preferably a php person...)
Callback to what? Use a callback function? Or "phone home" to the plugin developer? Yes on both counts.
yes indeed. they can do even worse
Oh yes. Depending on the plugin. A plugin can do anything a server-side language can do.
Sure. Some do for legit purposes (licensing). If in doubt check the code.
Yes, its possible.
It can be programmed to do whatever they want.
There are enough plugins out there which do that. Lots of paid plugins "phones home" to verify your license.
Ok guys I got it !
I knew this was possible with themes,(and had a notionthe same was for plugs and anything else .php related...) but wasn't sure regarding plugs.
It's crazy cause I've actally seen fools on here boast with comments like "of course you don't need to worry about it IT"S A PLUGIN!"
Always pays to check multiple sources ,do research and test.
