Support » Plugin: Instant Articles for WP » Awful plugin with irresponsible developers who don’t care about users

    I have successfully installed and used this plugin to generate IA. It can work in theory, so I’m not giving one star because I couldn’t make it work (which is nearly impossible, but possible).

    I’m giving one star because the Facebook team developing it are completely irresponsible about the time developers spend using this plugin.

    They update the plugin to remove vital features with no notice.

    Facebook changed the qualifications to use IA WITHOUT NOTIFYING ANYONE OR UPDATING THE PLUGIN TEXT!: Previously anyone with a facebook page could use this plugin and Instant Articles, but now you need a very large, unstated amount of traffic/activity on your page/site or else you won’t qualify to use Instant Articles.

    ESSENTIALLY THIS PLUGIN PROBABLY WONT WORK FOR YOU UNLESS YOUR SITE IS ALREADY EXTREMELY POPULAR ON FACEBOOK!

    And this change was made WITHOUT NOTIFYING ANYONE. Those of us who already set up this plugin just stopped having our Instant Articles work without being warned.

    A month after this process initially started breaking Instant Articles for people, they STILL haven’t replied with any kind of info, or updated the plugin.

    This is garbage and they should feel awful.

    BOOOOOO FACEBOOK! Get a grip!
