Broke site and started redirecting the traffic

BEWARE to install this plugin – it BROKE my site.

I installed the plugin and as soon as I verified an email address the whole site started to redirect traffic to Spent many hours to fix it. My backups were also deleted so I could not restore them. I am not sure, if it injected a malware in my site.

I deleted the plugin but that did not fix the issue. Then I deactivated every single plugin on the site and re-activated all of them to fix the issue.

Conflict with Appmaker.xyz


Your plugin works great. But too bad it conflicts with appmaker.xyz which I am using right now. Would you look into this ?



Excellent plugin

This plugin seems very well designed, can be closely integrated with WooCommerce email and my-account page, and is highly customizable. You can integrate the verification stuff with the WooCommerce welcome email, or send it separately. I chose integrated because I prefer sites that don’t send you several independent emails when you sign up. It worked perfectly on the first try.

If you’re testing on a staging site, the verification link will take you to the non-staging site, but that’s not a big deal.

Usefull plugin

If yo use wordpress for member system, this plugin avoid spam registration and keep make woocommerce more effective.

Great plugin, development and support

Validate users is a must-have function to WooCommerce, this plugin solves that and @xlplugins gives a great support and active development.

May the plugin would be better into a submenu of WooCommerce or Settings, without the “XL” branded menu, but is a detail not so important.
