Reviews

Like it a lot

Something a little odd for me. When watching a video on mobile device. If you turn the mobile to landscape the video will not fit the screen correctly. But if you start the video in landscape then it fits the screen just fine.

Disappointed

I couldn’t make it work. Documentation so poor I had nothing to help me debug problems. Pictures would not show up on upload, and posts showed as “Draft”. Don’t even ask me about the additional fields, because I couldn’t make the basics work. . I could manually attach a picture after upload, but that is not what it is supposed to do. Not at all intuitive how to make it work. Convoluted design IMHO. Just too difficult and poorly documented. I already wasted 90 minutes on this trying various things at random with zero success.

Awesome and unique plugin!

This is so awesome plugin, I’ve been looking for this kind of plugin long time without luck…Till now!!! Still need to work on some features and customization but hey, Nikola Tesla wasn’t invented alternating current in one day. Thanks and keep good work, this plugin can be wp revolution because I hate sites where users must register.

Feature like no other

Plugin provides ability for website visitors (not logged in) to upload images and link to YouTube videos as promised. Haven’t found anywhere else.
This is our best way of getting participants in our events to share their pics – because they dont want to create an account to do so.
Includes Captcha and notification that are well worth the small investment.
