Is this plugin a joke? (5 posts)

    Just installed this plugin and looks like this plugin was released as a subtle marketing tool for insideword than anything else.

    Plugin just doesn't work at all.

    WP should be a bit more strict about what plugins to publish

    Sorry to hear that the plugin didn't work for you : ( Though as you can see the plugin works for some people but not for others.

    I've been coding day and night to resolve some of the issues with the plugin that were discovered as people were using it. I released 0.5.0.0 last night but for some reason the tag is not updating in WordPress.

    This plug is amazingly complicated. We tried to make it as user friendly as possible by requiring no setup but unfortunately WordPress has no way of running background tasks so this has resulted in some pretty complex code.

    One of the mistakes we did make was that we didn't expect this many people to try and use the plugin this quickly so in version 0.4.4 we left some debugging code that catches critical php errors to help us fix issues as we saw them. We promptly got flooded with 6,000 e-mails from the plugin which was catching errors from other plugins. Since then we've turned off all the debugging lines in 0.5.0.0.

    By the way I'd be forever grateful if you would walkthrough what happened with me. We can chat about it on the website's live chat thing at the bottom right.

    We've decided to take the plugin down temporarily while we fix issues.
