Reviews

Wiederholt nach Update keine Funktion

Leider haben wir jetzt schon ein zweites mal alle Sterne auf der Webseite verloren, weil das Plugin nach einem Update nicht funktionieren will - egal wie oft ich es an- oder ausschalte, Cache kläre, API neu eingebe etc. Der Shortcode verschwindet bei Aktivierung des PlugIns, aber es werden keine Sterne angezeigt: se-legal.de (habe jetzt wieder die Proven Expert eigene Lösung eingebaut- deswegen sind die Sterne wieder da. - das ist nicht gut, wenn das so einfach durch ein Update verschwindet! Dadurch können wir Ranking Einbußen erleiden.) Hoffe, da kommt mal bisschen Stabilität rein, weil so ist das Plugin dauerhaft nicht wirklich nutzbar. Und dabei ist die Idee gut und der Werbeeffekt bzw. das Potential für Ihre Firma vorhanden! Edit: Auf 1 Stern reduziert da keine Antwort, auch nicht auf meine Support Anfrage. Und dieses Plugin wird von Provenexpert beworben. Meh.

Spannendes Bewertungs Plugin und toller Kundenservice

Da gab es doch ein paar Probleme mit Pagebuilder und dem Plugin in unserer Seite www.promomasters.at aber das Team von Straightvisions hat uns super geholfen. Danke dafür. P.S.: nach 3 Tagen zeigte Google zum ersten Mal unsere bewertungssterne an.
