Its broke my website !

The auto excerpt cannot properly cut on some element, if its broke. Please use read more / post excerpt. It can be activated from screen option.

What happen if i wrote an excerpt for the post ?

It will used, instead of the automatically generated one.


Not working at all for me

Before installing this plugin, I was able to at least create an excerpt with HTML tags manually. With this plugin, it shows the entire content of the page or post in place of the excerpt regardless of my settings. This includes embedded media.

For context: I am seeing excerpts on pages and posts protected with WooCommerce Memberships. This plugin defeats content protection entirely. I have tried several variations of the settings.

Doesn't work, but also useless without premium

It doesn’t work for me but what is also annoying is the fact that there are many options displayed in the settings which are not saved when I press the on the settings button. (it’s because they work only on premium) If it’s this the case, why you display them there if they don’t work ?

Useful, but has glitches

I am testing this product and liked it immediately. It does have its share of glitches though, I found that your changes do not always save even after repeated attempts.

I would give it a much higher rating if I was not always running into these problems as it does a nice job when it works.

Won't accept license code, but it is working

Purchased the pro version. Infuriating website. I registered, then it would not let me log in. I requested a password reset and got an email with nothing in it. The second one came through and took me to a login page that I could not pass. Finally, it somehow opened and gave me the license code, a long string of letters/numbers that I could not copy/paste.

I tediously entered the license string, but keep getting the message: “license you entered in incorrect.” There is a 0 and an O in the string, so I tried every combination with the same message returned.

It took a lot of messing around, but I finally got the teaser images to link to the content (had to also turn off the link when adding the image in WP and I also added a filter / function to the functions.php file from the WP Codex page).

The free version will only give you small teaser displays on the homepage / archive page; the paid version allows any size – that’s why I bought this – for the larger teaser size and the linking.

Since I finally got it working, I raised the rating up to three stars. It is actually a good plug-in, but it needs more polish. That said, since I got it working the way I needed it to work, it was finally worth the $10.

There is a notice where you enter the code that it expires in one year. I did not see that notice anywhere before I purchased it.
