Plugin Changes Site Taxonomy
By , for WP 3.5.1

I should have read these comments before I installed this plugin. I had a tree previously in place that starts with /books. I suppose that this plugin uses the same root I believe for now after I realized that all pages above the books were NOT FOUND, I deactivated the plugin and deleted it. Then I went to the pages, which are all still there (no content was erased), and saved them again. The result is now that these links like /books/en, /books/de, or /books/fr end up in a loop back to the homepage. However, the end of the link chain, the individual book links, have not been affected. I will try now to reinstall the plugin and see what I can change in the setup. If I cannot do what needs to be done and their support doesn't reply, there is only one solution that is very awkward. I would have to rename the root of all books to /publications. I believe this will solve the problem, but everywhere on the Internet I have propagated my books with the links to /books, etc. Such a thing should never happen!!!! These guys have to be pulled out of the WordPress developer community, for this is simply a totally amateurish mistake.

WARNING : plugin deletes content
By , for WP 3.5.1

I installed this plugin, and it immediately deleted all of the content for ALL of the book pages on my website. These represented literally thousands of hours of work--all of the reviews, images, playlists, and more for all of my books going back to 2001. I am extremely frustrated and saddened, as my website is where I keep all of the newspaper and magazine reviews, hundreds of them, that I've received over the years. Even the recovery files for all of my book pages were deleted. Even after uninstalling the plugin, none of the content could be recovered. Do NOT download MyBooks for Authors if you value the content you have already created.
