Decent Plugin, Poor Support

Plugin is decent, but some of the basic features don’t make practical sense. Sorting by likes/dislikes on a topic page makes the original topic sort among the other posts as well, making for a confusing display to the user. The BuddyPress notifications also have issues with improper links. I’ve had to fix a lot of these issues on my own because support doesn’t answer.

When I did email support, they responded to my detailed question with a one line reply asking for a screenshot. I sent it and have not heard back after following up a few times. It’s been over a week.

A second issue I sent has not been acknowledged at all, and it’s also been over a week.

Can’t recommend the paid version, as doing anything beyond the basic plug and play seems to have bugs, and support is either unwilling or unable to respond to questions. Seems like many others have issues with support as well.

It’s a shame because it has a lot of potential.

Amazing

Perfect for every use! I bought the ULTRA version and it is extremely flexible. Very cool plugin!

Don’t buy it, keep the free version

I’ve purchased this plugin 3 months ago to have a voting system on my website. I had many bugs and I’ve tried to ask for help to their support but they didn’t helped me at all. Sometimes, I had to wait more than one week to have an answer that was useless.
For a plugin that I’ve paid 200 $, no support is just insane.
The main issue is that all votes are registered to their servers. So when the servers are down, the votes are not available on your website. And it has happened once for more than 5 days. Their server was down, no customer service, no answer on FB or Twitter, you just have to wait.
So keep it free, they answer within 24 hours when it’s free and once you’ve bought it, you have to wait between 4 and 10 days.

LikeBox dysfunction

Likebox shows only the placeholder, not the picture of person who liked.
What did i wrong?

thx,
