Reviews

Superb Customer Support!

This plugin works as expected. Customer support was wonderful! I even had a minor issue with my theme layout and support didn’t hesitate to help me out to resolve the problem (Not their fault). I’m glad I made the purchase, the plugin works like a charm!

Not very useful SEO Wise

This plugin creates it’s own blog. So if you already have blog posts this is useless. Also, it won’t create a slug based on your categories so again, not very SEO friendly. I replied to a user comment on their site forum a couple days ago asking if anything has been updated to this regard. Still no response. Their website is convoluted and the shortcodes they offer either contradict themselves or don’t work. It’s a trial and error type situation trying to get this thing to work.

Does the job perfectly

Does exactly what I need, easy and quick to use, summary looks good in both full view and sidebar view. Highly recommended.

WARNING DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THESE PEOPLE !!!!!!

This plugin will not work with all wordpress themes. When there product is not compatible with a theme they refuse to refund you even though their refund policy clearly states that if their product does not for some reason work to your needs they will refund no problem. Total bullshit they then try to charge you several hundred dollars to to get someone to make their plugin work with your WordPress theme. Sorry but the whole point in buying a plugin is generally so that you do not have to get someone to do coding for you. If that was the case I would not buy a plugin and would just get one custom coded into the the theme with no plug in required.

These people are a total scam and lie in their refund policy. I’m sure their plugin works with some themes but BEWARE and save yourself the hassle just in case and buy your plugins from a more reputable seller who will stand behind their work, customer service and support, as well as their own refund policy.
