So. i bought this mainly because of the feature to post to google+ since there’s nothing out there that works so far for me. But after reading about the setup and installation of the Google+ API for nextscripts i read this crazy statement, “Please note that WordPress is not storing your Google+ password in very secure manner, so you better create a separate G+ account for your website.”
I don’t want to put all the blame on nextscripts here for this since i don’t know if there’s a secure password work-around, so i applaud them for attempting a solution for Google+, but i mean it’s pretty worthless to me if my original google+ account for my website should not be used.
If you want to pay for this plugin you will have to ask yourself two questions . . .
– is it worth paying for the opportunity for a hacker to hack the password to your google+ account?
– is it worth setting up a separate google+ account just for this plugin’s sake?
Those are questions you will have to ask yourself. I would have rated it higher, but this plugin does not make sense for me to use.

after dialogue with support staff it seems that the password storage issue is not as ‘crazy’ as i made it to be. NextScripts does a good job with this plugin. Wish the password didn’t have to be stored on wordpress’s database, but this is the best solution out there now . . . and a good one.
