Beacause, I am doing nothing wrong. The codes are available on the official AMP page. I am just sharing them.



It’s OK to pay if we don’t know or have less time to get the job done. WordPress plugin or AMP is “Open Source” which allow us to freely use. I see self try as a good learning point and money saving opportunity.



Sure. But then how about using the original plugin? Those AMPForWP folks have invested time and money to code such a great plugin. Do comparison of the original plugin vs AMPForWP, and see the difference.



Yes, it can be great as after update changes will not loose.

Edit: I just noticed that code has been added directly inside plugin UI, so no risk of lossing after update as long that feature exist.



There is a big difference between the original and AMPForWP plugin. It is open source but they have invested money and time in customization. Ad Plugin is their main source of revenue.
