    I planed using this plugin to add a custom PHP code (just showing the searchform) as a snippet. Obviously, there was an error in my PHP code, and it broke the website down, mean you can not access both frontend and backend till the time you get the issue fixed via FTP.

    So if you are about to use this plugin, be careful cause any error in your code can break your website. It is very bad.

  • Not very fair to give the plugin a bad review because of your faulty code, isn’t?

    This can help you:

    Also if one first saves the code snippet and only later activate it, the browser back button will help to edit the broken code.

    Actually it was totally fair. I just had the same problem. Installed your plug-in, added a simple code snippet for a Pinterest site validatation, and then had the EXACT SAME THING happen to me. Blew my website up because this wonderful plugin crashed HARD. Had to go into the site via FTP and delete the plugin to get ANYTHING to execute again. Brutal. Take the feedback.

    Very unfair review. Everyone developing on a live site should think about using a staging /development site to test prior to going live. Disabling the plugin via FTP is also very quick (should take less than a minute), so hardly a Brutal event.

    I’d just like to add: there are methods for recovering from buggy code without needing to use FTP at all, the easiest of which just involves adding some text to the end of the page URL. @tqhung85 @anthonyrobertshaw, you can find out about them in the FAQ.

    Also, thank you for the support @lightwavin @gabriel-reguly – we appreciate it 🙂

    This review is downright absurd. The plugin has been working fine on hundreds of websites or us.
