Reviews

Awful – Needs Work (a lot of…)

Started off pretty well, with just the settings playing up slightly when I tried to change background and text colours.

On implementing the shortcode however was where the true faults appeared.

The clock itself wouldn’t change unless the page was refreshed.

Going back into my page editor to see if it was a shortcode problem, I found that all the Yoast settings had become un-readable, with huge logos all around.

On trying to delete the plugin, it clung on by it’s fingernails until I decided to go into my server and delete it from there.

Not a nice experience all round then, but two stars given rather than one due to the neat settings panel that almost worked.
