It stopped redirecting me, and I never downloaded the “Xtreme” update based on everyone’s warnings. There is another update to 3.1.6 it keeps prompting me to make, which, looking at the code, essentially DEACTIVATES the plugin so I’m forced to pay for a subscription. So, I’ll never update it unless it breaks. For now, it’s working great, and it’s a lot better than paying $15 to $20 for the Bannerize subscription this guy’s now wanting to charge for this.
My advice is if you have 3.1.5 installed, keep it and don’t ever update it and you should be fine.
4 stars for 3.1.5.
0 stars for 3.1.6.
Uses a very annoying browser hijack when accessing the WP Bannerize plugin panel within WP.
Instead of taking you to your control panel, they forcefully redirect you to their site to sell you stuff.
This is the worst way to advertise your products. At least give users the CHOICE! If they are clicking on the control panel, it means they want to see their control panel — NOT YOUR STUPID WEBSITE!
I’m about to report this to WordPress as Adware/Malware. I’m pretty sure an unexpected redirect to your sales page is a violation of WP Terms of Service.
