Reviews

No support and plugin breaks site

I’ve spent weeks trying to get in touch with these people only to be completely ignored. After working fine all of a sudden this plugin has crashed my site and now the months of hard work building a knowledge base it’s now useless.

Don’t buy this plugin unless you don’t want any support and you want to waste loads of your time creating something that will stop working for no reason.

Shady Shady People – Don’t Buy!

These asshats are using my photo, name and a fake quote from me as a testimonial for their crappy plugin. That is next level shady. Consider yourself warned. Now it’s up to you if you want to pay money to lying sacks of cow manure in order to obtain total junk. Also, if you’re the kind of people who just blatantly make up testimonials because you can’t get anyone to say anything good about your effed up plugin, maybe you should just wake up and realize you suck. This road isn’t going to get better for you. You’re living in denial that your work is going to ever turn into anything useful, as you run from one shit storm of your own creation to another. Just accept it and consider another line of work. The world doesn’t need more morally bankrupt basement dwellers pretending to be legit programmers. We’ve got enough already. And if you’re reading this you Documentor fraud bros – take my photo and name and make believe statements OFF your website. – Tracey Halvorsen

Amazing support

We had an issue when integrating with a phbb forum plugin that caused a manual to dissapear, we contacted the author and they were able to resolve it.

We were so happy with the free version we have upgraded to the full version all I can say is this is 100% worth the upgrade, and the support rocks!

Love the product; the support is bad

When I first started using Documentor, the support was good, but it has now become non-existent. This is scary because documentor serves a key function on my website and I am not sure if the developers are still active. So, I suggest being careful if you are considering Documentor.

Very buggy – consider yourself warned

This plugin is TERRIBLE. I purchased the premium version and let me tell you, it does not work. Full of bugs. Doesn’t even look like the developers have a support channel. Spare yourself a lot of pain and trouble

Very useful !

This plugin is very helpful to create a great product documentation.

I use it on my website and after some step to install it (with some problems but it’s already the same thing with a new plugin)

I recommend this plugin for everybody who need a product documentation for everything. Moreover the price of the premium version is very afordable (only 19 USD) !
