Reviews

not fixing nested serialized strings correctly

the plugin might be able to fix serialized strings for widgets, but it was not working for fixing a serialized string from a plugin (global content block) with nested data arrays.
It seems, that it simply looks for the first pair of double quotes and counts the character between.
