Support » Plugin: Current Year and Copyright Shortcodes » Does not work with themes; poor support

    Wasted a lot of time trying to get this plug-in to work, which it didn’t, even after wasting additional time with the same developer’s “Shortcodes Anywhere and Everywhere”….Note that this plug-in is not updated or maintained in any way for current versions of WordPress, so I would recommend finding an alternate solution.

    Finding an answer as to why it didn’t work was also futile. No real answer is available publicly, even though I saw that other people had the same issue. When I reached out to the developer of this plug-in for some help … he offered very little of it, was rude, unhelpful, and finally condescended to give me a useless answer that I already knew … “Yea. It won’t work….”

    The plugin itself actually works fine (it’s got very little code in it that would cause it to not work). The problem was that the user couldn’t get a shortcode to work in the area of her theme she needed, probably because the theme doesn’t process the stack in a standard way. That is a compatibility issue with another of my plugins, Shortcodes Anywhere and Everywhere, which generally works, but not on all themes.

    I feel bad that the user’s feelings were hurt, but sometimes the truth about incompatibility is hard to take.
