    Rewrite the code so it doesnt check for a license or other stuff. But ofcourse you still need to buy the original.

    The only way would be editing the code and creating a new plugin from scratch

    Theres not way to null for free while u resting on ur bed

    If u wanna null real quick
    1- get the plugin premium name
    Example pro : Yoast-pro
    Example for free : yoast

    Go to google search into websites folders
    Witch contains the pro version
    Google type : "yoast-pro"
    You will find some links

    Htttp://website.com/wp-content/plugins/ search for yoast-pro ctrl+f search string
    The. Look for zip file


    U have to have a knowladge about php

    U will find something look like
    If license is actived .....you can play with it with php

    Or you could actually pay for the plugin instead of finding ways to get it for free.

    Why should you do that? Allow me to enlighten you....

    A developer invests time, money and effort to produce a plugin which delivers a certain value to the person using it.

    The developer sells that plugin to make money because, like any business, they need to make money for things such as;

    1) paying the running costs of their business
    2) investing money back in to the business to develop new plugins
    3) being able to further develop the plugins they're already selling.

    If the developer is lucky he will have money left over (a profit) to pay themselves a wage as well as paying their rent/mortgage, to buy food and to pay their household bills.

    If no one buys that plugin then fair enough and that would be the fault of the developer for getting something wrong somewhere along the lines.

    However, when the developer hits a home run and makes a plugin that people are willing to buy then why would it be fair for you to think that you're entitled to get that developers plugin for free?

    For every plugin that is used by someone who didn't pay for it is money that is taken from the pocket of the developer who, at the end of the day, is just trying to make a living and provide for his family.

    Maybe you think that by you not paying for the plugin won't make any difference at all, but you're not the only one thinking that.

    When there are 1,000 people thinking like this and getting the plugin for free then that is a huge amount of money taken from the developers business.

    • It's money that he could have used to improve the plugin you are getting for free.
    • It's money that he could have used to pay for more staff to help support his existing customers.
    • It's money that he could have used to develop new plugins.
    • It's money that he could have used to make sure his family are fed, housed and clothed!!

    If you can't afford to buy the WP plugin that you want then that means you can't afford to buy it. It also means the developer can't afford to give it away either.

    Do what it takes to make the money to buy the plugin or what ever product you want. And if your come back to this is "hey, this a Black hat forum" then I assume your interpretation of 'black hat' means being able to obtain products without paying for them.

    That's not black hat!!!

    I'm not supporting such stuff.
    Who wants to null WordPress plugin is the one who cannot afford.

    You don't even know person who made yoast plugin and some other popular one, are making TONS and tons of money tho.

    Nulled plugings on internet are basically backdoored, hacking is inevitable

    So, it's ok then if, in your opinion, the person already has loads of money? If they have a certain amount of money already then it's ok to null their plugin because they don't need any more money?

    Any idea who much that guys makes? Any idea how much he has in the bank? Any idea how he made that money?

    I'll give you a clue: It was made by selling the products he invested time money and effort in to.

    Grabbing nulled stuff is tempting, no doubt. But man what would we do without the badass developers to make all our awesome code? They wouldn't do that if they couldn't get paid for it.

    I work more than probably anyone here hours wise. I am proud to be able to invest in this stuff so some day I don't have to freeze all winter and burn up all summer.

    Even though I agree with the peeps here regarding buying the module, though nulling the plugin really depends on the plugin and how deep in the code the security check. Good plugins usually encrypt part of the code, thus it is impossible to null it or you have to rewrite functions yourselve. Sometimes decryption tools like [https://idecode.eu/] help, but not always. So I think it would be cheaper for you to just buy plugin and use it for any purpose you have, unless you want to resell it on black market for cheaper. Good luck.

    My only problem is with plugins that ask a yearly payment, this is a scam and they should be punished !
    The only problem is that some people make money selling nulled plugins, but if it's nulled for free, it is acceptable :)

    Thank you. You just described my life. Making these things is super hard , from designing to developing to testing to deploying to marketing to giving support to mantaining.

    People see developers as the evil rich, but to get there we had to work our asses off.

    If something has an on-going cost (maintenance, updates, support) what’s wrong with charging for it on a yearly basis?

    It's very wrong for me, and I hope for most.
    I never buy any plugin that is not mine definitively with lifetime updates.
    Coders do not update their plugins form, they do it to still be able to sell it, and it costs them nothing to also give it to me who has already paid. They deserve to be nulled and cheated if they ask more payment.

    I agree with what shezboy said. But I also believe that people using nulled plugins can make the developer some money. Not saying it would always be the case, but it could happen. Let me explain...

    Let's say that I make some awesome .pdf SEO guide that revolves around making a type of website that ranks easily, and it requires the use of Plugin A, which costs $27. Now let's say I wouldn't likely want to admit to using a nulled version, as I'd be embarrassed to do so, because it would shift the focus of the guide (or at least, that's what I would think). So I'd skip over that fact and simply mention that I used Plugin A. I could take one step further and include an affiliate link to Plugin A (if applicable), so that when I tell people they need to use Plugin A, I get paid when they do. So I send my guide all over the internet, hoping people don't do as I did, with regards to finding the nulled plugin.

    So, from my nulled version, and my faith in its capabilities (or its affiliate program), I create more buyers for the developer, on his/her behalf.
