This plugin was a superstar in my toolbox for WordPress development for years - right up until it was purchased by the new developer.
Now I have hundreds of completed sites that are all looking like crap because of this plugin. The updates continue to make this situation worse, not better.
If this is a planned obsolescence to inspire the public to upgrade to a paid plugin, I think it has backfired. Any developer who can take such an elegant and well thought out plugin and turn it into a huge headache and essentially trash without doubt is not a developer I will pay for anything.
Like everyone else, I am in search of a replacement.
Any candidates people?
