Would Give it Less if I Could...
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin has A LOT of advertising ads when getting ready to print. Totally BS. Uninstalled immediately. Thanks for nothing. Sorry, but if I wanted to ad Google Adsense to my website I can do it on my own and gain a few pennies each month. This is very deceiving. Everyone, make sure to read the reviews about this plugin.

Deceiving about ads
By , for WP 3.8.1

I installed this plugin manually with a shortcode on 87 pages just to find out that it has ads build into it.

It says absolutely nothing about ads in the description and the ads weren't displaying in Chrome when I initially tested it (my bad for not checking out the module in IE and FF).

Then when the site came online, my client discovered that it displays ads when printing.

And what's worse is that it costs a monthly subscription to remove ads?

What exactly am I paying for? Just the removal of ads? Because when I created a thread about a problem I had, no one from their team responded and I initially had to work around it and create a whole new CSS from scratch.

Now I have to find a new print module and cuztomise that. All because the developers didn't mention anything about ads.

I don't mind paying developers for their work. But paying a subscription for something I initally customized myself without any respond from the team? Thats just not going to happen!

Deceiving plugin. Stay away if you wish an ad-free plugin or a one-time-fee solution.

Plugin relies on code on author's site (phones home)
By , for WP 3.7.1

I refuse to use plugins that choose to rely on code stored on the publishers site. This causes havoc if/when the plugin is no longer updated and thus forces a lifecycle on the plugin.

The images and all code could be stored local, like 99% of all the WordPress plugins, but this author chooses not to do this.

This also causes slowdowns and lack of functions when the plugin is used in a corporate environment, behind firewalls and proxy's which only allow specific access to the outside world, or in some case there is NO access.

It is not only in poor taste and design, not to mention the author can pull statistics on your site's users, as the external link happens every time the button is shown.

Don't waste your time

I have no problem with a one time fee...but a monthly recurring fee is greedy and against the mantra of the wordpress community.

Paid for Service - Got no Service
By ,

I setup a monthly payment with this plugin - yes 5 dollars to print (are we in the stone age) - the payment agreement was that they would remove the ads on my site after payment. Well, I have paid and the ads are still there, so at this moment this plugin pay system is a scam. They are taking my money monthly and not providing the service they said they would. Beware Buyer, beware.

Good but dangerous!

Beware of the Ads that appear when printing! ,
especially if the ad is linked straight to a competitor of your company (which happen to me)

This plugin has Ads that appear to site visitors
By , for WP 3.6.1

Beware - this is a cool plugin that adds very nice print, email, and PDF functionality to posts or pages, BUT when site users click on any of the functions (to print, email, or PDF a page/post) then ads appear......

Also, if a site user clicks on the ads, whether intentionally or accidentally (the ads are LARGE), then it takes them AWAY from your site.

The only way to have this plugin ad-free is to pay extortion.....err...I mean a monthly (or annual) subscription fee to get the Pro version.....

Never Never Never Use this Plugin
By , for WP 3.6.1

ANy plugin that has advertisement that tell users to down load drivers get a zero! Far too many buttons to push and the advertising is of a type that will confuse not techies and is objectionable to me.
