Automatically activate MaxBlogPress plugins, without registering and without subscribing to the MaxBlogPress email list.

== Description ==

MaxBlogPress plugins require a two-step registration/activation process, as well as a forced opt-in to an email-list subscription, in order to use them. This plugin circumvents those requirements, enabling unrestricted use of the plugins.

**Note:** this plugin *does not install any other plugins*. If you wish to use any MaxBlogPress plugins supported by cbnet MBP Auto-Activate, you must install them separately.

**Note 2:** This Plugin is not an endorsement for MaxBlogPress Plugins, but rather a proof-of-concept to demonstrate why it is futile to force users to jump through Plugin-registration and email-list-subscription hoops just to use Plugin functionality. It appears that some or all of MaxBlogPress Plugins are now released under a non-GPL-compatible license that restricts code modification. Use them at your own risk.

This plugin currently supports the following MaxBlogPress plugins:

* Different Posts Per Page
* DealDotCom Widget
* Unblockable Popup
* Ping Optimizer
* Stripe Ad
* Psychic Search
* Favicon
* SEO Post Link

This plugin now also supports the following MaxBlogPress Revived plugins:

* AdSense Deluxe Revived
* Flash Fader Revived
* Links Manage Widget
* Banner Ads
* Ajax Post Listing
* Random Image
* Access By Category
* Captcha For Comment
