Worked Great for me

I emailed the support team about 1 small bug I found, and they fixed it immediately, thanked me, and followed up. Couldn’t be happier. I didn’t realize how many spelling mistakes my site had till I ran these scans. Thanks!!

Has potential but too many problems

Too many things didn’t work or had bugs. I was using it on a development site, which perhaps caused some of the issues, but that would be a common use case. Final straw was the additional html tags injected in my original content. I really wanted this to work as it has great potential.

Nuked my site

I installed this as I wanted to ensure that my spelling was up to scratch on the content I published but this plugin ended up Error 500 my site. Had to contact my hosting provider to get them to manually remove it as I couldn’t access my site nor control panel at all.

Lmfao. Please tell me you are kidding

The people that gave this a positive review are either incredibly bad writers or they know the guy that has this plugin and are simply trying to give him a good rating. The plug in WORKS. Logistically. However, functionally? It sucks. I just wrote out a sentence riddled with errors:

well, this just goes to show were going to have to wait until next tuesday for the new Update. in the meantime, we will need to consistntly blah blah blah.

The thing completely skipped the lowercase in W(ell), the upper case in U(pdate), the lower case in T(uesday), the lower case in ‘In” it skipped “consistently” entirely lol. You get the drift. It skipped everything that was wrong lol.

I hate grammarly because they do not work well with WordPress. But I would use them over this plugin any day of the week lol. Come on, guy. You could have had something good here!

works perfectly amazing

It helped us to find lot of hidden content on the site that was hurting us with SEO. lot of Lorem Spam here and there and multi languages details we didn’t see. The template had many small things which we didn’t use and they are all discovered. I am like this plugin a lot.

Thank you
