Support » Plugin: Meta Slider » Bait-and-switch

  • This plugin advertises as “Meta Slider” in the search results, but installs as “Meta Slider Lide” and turns out to be just a cut-down, teaseware version of the real thing. I consider this bait-and-switch. The ethical thing to do would be to make the plugin advertise itself as “Meta Slider Lite” in search results, so that users who principally dislike teaserware won’t be tricked into installing it.

    Hi Rulatir,

    Thanks for the feedback. The word “Lite” does nothing for us (I’m aware as you are that the word “Lite” is not going to be the ‘clincher’ for a sale, for that we aim to provide the very best image slider with the best support free of charge). The word “Lite” is just there to follow convention really, I didn’t realise it could cause such upset so I’ll review that in the next release.

    In the mean time I’d appreciate it if you could review the plugins functionality like our other reviewers have done, rather than it’s name in WordPress. It seems unfair to give it 1 star whilst ignoring the functionality it provides.

    Rulatir? As the plugin author asked, what do you think of the plugin itself?
