Support » Plugin: NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster » Change UI beyond the scope of the plugin

  • Why in the hell the developer decided to change the background of the “edit/create post” UI?? He inserted a giant leaf (!?) in the upper right corner of my WordPress WITHOUT MY CONSENT. This has NOTHING to do with the scope of the plugin. This shouldn’t be handled by this plugin. I’ll review the plugin guidelines because I think this is not just a bad practice of the dev, but also an infringement to the WordPress.org terms.

    It was done by mistake and it was already reported in the tree treads.

    There is no need for more. It will be removed in the next release TODAY.

    One mistake that was there for less then a 10 hours is really a reason for one star review?

    This issue has been fixed in the version 4.0.3

    Why bad review for the whole plugin? There is a support section here: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/social-networks-auto-poster-facebook-twitter-g/

    We always fix all reported issues.

    Too late, unfortunately. My 1-star rating is not based on 1 mistake, but on a series of bad practices

    1) I was left with no choice but deactivate your plugin and implement an alternative solution based on Zapier in all my customer websites, specially those who complained directly to me.

    2) The issue related to your plugin not being able to delay publishing has already caused me A LOT of troubles — lots of customers complaining that they Facebook images were not correct. I figured out that post delay was a premium feature (!) of your plugin, even after Facebook announced their API change, what obviously caused major issues to us.

    3) It’s not the 1st time you try to change the default WP look, so I had no reason to believe this was a mistake. That green/bold font color of your menu item is not what you should do to get our attention! You simply shouldn’t try to highlight your plugin this way. OUR wordpress installations are not advertising spaces where plugins fight for attention. I was already overriding this with custom admin CSS in my websites, but it’s a shame I had to do this.

    4) A few months ago, I analyzed your source code trying to fix the Facebook issue described above, since you didn’t fix it on time, but I came accross a real mess!
