Reviews

As it is – A Waste of Time

Just tried THREE content lockers – Onepress Social Locker, Content Locker by MyThemeShop, and Locker Cat, and all three are not fit for purpose as content sharing plugins as all three have unthinkable errors (MyThemeShop is SLIGHTLY different but we’ll go onto that on their review)

FACEBOOK – Onepress and Locker Cat both just show the ‘Like’ button, it’s pressed, and the content is cleared. Ok, that’s what’s supposed to happen, but looking on my Facebook Page, and my personal page, there was no show of any ‘like’ at all. In fact I don’t really think anything happened except a tick appeared and the content got revealed. Hardly inspiring stuff. Content Locker was ok here, as it directed me to my Facebook profile, together with a list of pages that I might like to post to. Which is how I expected the other two plugins to react.

TWITTER – Content Locker failed miserably here as it refused to post to twitter due to the ‘ticket being invalid’. Funny, but I don’t remember setting up a Twitter app? The other two fared no better though, as even when the tweet and url was shown, all ready to tweet, I found that if you cancelled out of it (even with OnePress’ Double Check button activated), the content was revealed nevertheless, making tweets useless all around – a little like on their Facebook incarnations.

All I can say is, thank god that none of these guys are in charge of security plugins!

I’m also very wary now of going to the likes of Code Canyon to purchase a plugin, as the above three examples have left a very bitter taste.

Poor show all around I’m afraid.

Doesn’t work

Looks lie I set everything correctly but it fails to lock content and display the social buttons.

Does the Job Really Well

Words cannot describe how happy I am with this plugin. It does the job very well and helps you lock your content. I am using it to lock links to extensive guides on my website and my social sharing count has increase multiple folds after starting to use Content Locker.

Not Good

I have an error // syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/conexion/public_html/aprendiendo/wp-content/plugins/content-locker/admin/class-cl-admin.php on line 96 // I got this error on WP 4.2.1 and I suppose that my version was out of date, I had to update to 4.7.2 and my WP visual composer ( that is way I was out of date due incompatibility) BUT NOW all has been updated and I got the same error, I read the lines wich calls a function ‘onrender’ = function() …. I modified this lines to make it work and seems to be is starting, BUT there are more lines Unexpected and parsed lines…so for me the plugin is tricked to force payed assistant.
