Horrible Out of the Box (2 posts)

    I wanted to set up a Wiki website for my main website, so I'm using MU set-up with domains. I downloaded this plugin and installed it and nothing seems to work as it says it should.

    First off, the how-to setup shows a totally different settings page. All I see is Wiki Slug option and save. That's it nothing else; a plugin like this I think would have more that I can setup and change to match with my blog and theme. If they we're removed form the lite version to get us to buy into pro, it's not labeled and honestly I don't want to use the plugin then.

    If the settings have been moved, you haven't done a very good job in letting users know of this. So points knock off for that.

    My theme is custom made, and I understand that not every plugin would work, but you would think basic functions of a wordpress theme would work but sadly it doesn't.

    The main Wiki pages show up, but if I click for example the edit box and it breaks the whole page. When I go to discussions the whole page breaks and honestly I have no idea why and don't think your plugin is that amazing to go out of my way and fix it.

    I've been using my theme over a year now and updates it with WordPress so it just shows that this plugin was poorly written and really doesn't do anything that really is any different then my blog itself can do other then a poorly made version of the wiki software. I can't even set my main page to a wiki homepage.

    For some reason my changing my home page look from a blog or static page goes away with nothing replacing it with this plugin.

    I'm sorry to be so harsh but I don't have time to mess around with a plugin that doesn't give what I wanted and honestly looks more like it's just something to get you sucked into the pro version.

    2 stars for effort if anything.

    Hi @Richard Arellano,

    Thanks for your feedback here though I really am sorry to hear you had a poor experience with the plugin. We'd love to try and turn that around for you.

    As you mentioned the page breaks when going to discussions, I can assure you it's not the plugin doing that on its own. That can easily be verified by trying the plugin with any of the default themes.

    The plugin's also very well written, but we totally understand that theme/plugin conflicts might occur. Thus why we're here to assist through the public forums:
    http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wordpress-wiki-plugin

    You can always post through the forums and we'll do our best to get any reported issues sorted.

    I do understand your point about the instructions, we could use more details specific to this free version and I'll run that by the team.

    Again, thanks for your feedback on this. I realize it's been quite a bit of time since you posted this, but we'd love to look into that theme conflict if you'd be willing.

    Cheers!
