  • I can’t believe they’ve managed to botch the update to v6 so badly. Without any warning, this broke several of our customers sites. Fixing them up has been a nightmare, and still plenty doesn’t work. In 20 years of working on websites, I’ve never seen such a messy experience, and there is little to no documentation to explain what elements are affected.

    The amount of classes that have been renamed slightly for no reason, completely messing up CSS, is ridiculous. It’s also completely altered how the search works, so we can’t use it at all now on a customised site. I will never be using this plugin again as you can’t possibly trust people who will release an update like this with no warning.

    Hello, I’m sorry you had such a bad experience with the update. Obiously not our intention.

    We have written about this in our blog posts, unfortunately there was such a big change between our templates which were 10+ years old with practically no styling and our new UI that required large changes. This particularly affected those with highly customized templates, which sounds like maybe that’s the case for you, although we did our best to mitigate these with minimal structural changes, more CSS rules.

    Please refer to this blog post which explains it more along with workarounds;

    It’s a shame that also so many users that claim to have used our plugin for so many years also only feel the need to come and leave reviews when something goes wrong. Whilst the update did go wrong for many people it also went right for many more that updated and just moved on with things.
