high price for non-existant customer service
By , for WP 3.9

I have been trying to set up a wiki for a while, without success. After trying this plugin, I bought it.

If a plugin is really well written and stable, and I can't pull it off on my own, I'm willing to pay. I'm even willing to pay $34. But here's what happens.

If you have any trouble installing or you have questions about installing, you have to pay another $34, and that's for six months, only. The documentation is very basic. No 'frequently asked questions' or 'troubleshooting.'

There is NO WAY to reach the developer without paying for support, because there are no contact links or email addresses. Or better said, the one email link I found took me to the 'pay for support' page.

On top of all this, Dennis Hoppe's blurb is very short, and mentions his dedication to quality plugins at reasonable prices.

There is nothing reasonable about the way this is set up. If you pay the $34 and can't get it to work, you're out of luck unless you're willing to risk throwing good money after bad. There's a refund policy that says basically: get lost.

It's very frustrating to have a good plugin that is written by somebody who is so reclusive and unapproachable. Dennis Hoppe lives inside a black box, apparently. This is very bad business etiquette. Stay away unless you are tech savvy enough to dig into the code yourself, in which case, you won't need it to start with.

Herr Hoppe aus Berlin: Sie sollten sich schämen, so Geld gierig zu sein.

Literally. You really can't do anything and no other feature is accessible other than the "lexicon" with more than 50% of the options inaccessible. Going to the developer's website reveals no demo and a $30 cost for "pro" which doesn't come with any support - none. Don't know if this is updated. Don't waste any time with this plugin - it really is useless.

Plugin Dev Unhelpful / Unreachable
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin only allows 12 entries and 90% of the options are non-functional, which means it's really nothing more than spam for the Premium version. So we upgraded to the Premium version. Had issues and plugin dev was very unhelpful and disabled our ability to download updates less than 24 hours from our initial purchase. Have moved on.
