    Flare was a great plugin, but in the most recent update (1.2.3) the authors decided to add a purple lightning button that looks like a social sharing button but is an actually an ad for a company called Filament. I actually had users message me via my site asking what Filament was all about, and why I was linking to it. They were confused by it. And rightly so.

    So I've rolled back to the previous version, which doesn't force you to display advertising, and hope that the plugin authors remove the purple button from the next update. If they don't, then I will have to find another plugin, which will be a shame because I do like the way Flare looks. For now, though, I would avoid Flare.

    Hey Charlie

    Thanks for the feedback. We heard a lot from the community, and have just released an update that makes the branding optional. In addition, we're working on a pro version of Flare, that adds a bunch of awesome functionality. You can get all the details here:

    Hopefully we can bring you back! =)
