Free Version Works well
By ,

Free version works well with most networks, but for Google+ you need to pay a premium amount!

Perfect, Almost
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have to say I love this plugin. It really makes my life so much easier! It's nice to have a plugin that just works, set it and forget it! I would have given 5 starts but you have to pay for Google+. For some that is a great investment but for a starving writer like myself $50 bucks is food on my table.

Other than having to pay for the pro version this plugin is PERFECT! I STRONGLY recommend it for anyone that writes a blog or has a website that is updated regularly!

Save your money.

Edit: I've since had a change of heart and am changing my review. My original review is at the bottom.

----- UPDATED REVIEW -----
Circumstances had required me to reinstall WP & plugins. Went to reinstall 3.2.1 on WP 3.8.1 and had the same problems with AJAX "-1" errors on the settings page.

While I think the support could have gone better, ultimately the developer was able to find the problem and release ver. 3.2.2. This introduced a new problem however.

After giving the developer login credentials to the site, he was able to see first-hand the problem, provided a workaround, and indicated the problem will be fixed in the next version.

Perhaps I was a little too harsh in my original review. After all, most WP developers are usually one or two guys whose passion is WP and extending WP. Not making any excuses, but in my defense I wouldn't have been so upset originally if I hadn't just laid out $150 for the plugin. For $150 you expect something that "works". (Dear mods - yes I know this is the support forum for the non-commercial version of the plugin, but the same problems that have plagued the pro version also plague the free version.)

So I'm revising my review. I won't give this plugin 5 stars, because while it may be a tremendous time-saver, it's just too flaky, and the development lifecycle is too… unpredictable.

Personally I think this should be split out to make the codebase easier for the developer to work with. Have a main plugin and separate plugins for each social network that way when an API changes in twitter you only have to update one small plugin and not the behemoth.

Anyway, these are my words, and I stand behind them.

----- ORIGINAL REVIEW -----
I gotta say I'm incredibly disappointed and frustrated with this plugin.

I've been fighting with this plugin now for over a week, have had to open about a half-dozen tickets with the plugins' author, and have even had to resort to posting here since he took down the forums on his website. I can honestly say that I'm ashamed to admit I forked over the $150 for the WPMU version.

My heartfelt honest advice?

Save your money.

Consider using IFTTT instead. It allows you to automatically setup recipes and connections to the same social networks and can automatically post from all of your blogs (WPMU or not) based on when you publish a new post.

Honest to God I wish I could get a refund.

This is a great concept, but poorly executed in my opinion.

great plugin
By , for WP 3.5.2

I've really boosted my visitors from social sites using this plugin.

Easy to install and use. Well worth spending time opening up some social accounts and configuring the plugin for autoposting.

Sadly the auto twitter import metions has stopped working with the new api so I've had to remove a star.

All in One Social Auto Posting! Great
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's great when you have only one plugin to cover all your need. This is what I looked for. But I would give you 5, if the plugin could handle tagging users in a post. Like mention user on Twitter post. This is very essential for me. So far, I have to make it manually through the edit post page.

Thanks for this great plugin

Only the Pro version allows for Google Plus posting
By , for WP 3.5.1

I wanted to be able to auto post to Google Plus so I purchased the upgrade to the PRO version and it appears to be the only way to cross post to Google Plus out there on the market. The plugin was not as easy to use as I had hoped, but if you look at the instructions on the site, then it is possible to solve the issues that popped up. It can be a bit clunky though. I wish the instructions, including common error troubleshooting came with the download. I had to search around for instructions and give it a few more tries before it worked.

UPDATE: I was given instructions on how to update my review so I have corrected it! Thank you all for the tips.

It really works

It does what it says and there is no doubt about that!(The backend could be prettier thought)

Works very well - could be a bit prettier
By , for WP 3.4.2

I needed to post updates to both Twitter and Facebook and after trying a couple of plugins this was the number one choice. It was easy to setup (it may be worth to mention that I am a developer myself) and I really like the option to be able to re-post updates to selected networks.

Some negative things: could use a bit of cleanup in the GUI. Felt a bit ugly sometimes and things like getting back an debug array when re-posting things kinda makes it difficult for non-developer users to use the plugin (they get very confused).

But all in all: a good plugin that delivers what it promises.
