Horrible, if I could give 0 stars I would.

  • Completely fragged my entire site. I am writing this while I wait on my backups to FTP back up to the server. Also jacked up my PHPBB site as well. I just torched about 4 hours of my vacation thanks to this steaming pile of code.

    What went wrong? Did you try seeking support? How did you evaluate the code to determine it was a “steaming pile”?

    I didn’t try seeking support, it completely sidelined an active site so I had to stop everything I was doing to restore it from a backup. I evaluated the code based on the fact that it modified a slew of root wordpress files (including main.php and cache.php) and malformed them badly. My site immediately started throwing 500 errors. After I restored everything I diffed the files from after the update with my restored versions and they were completely junked. Based on my error logs from that time it looks like 10 – 12 files were changed and began throwing errors, and even the administration area began throwing 500 errors, directly after the activation.

    Wp-united doesn’t modify a single wordpress file. Doesn’t touch a single one.

    I’m sorry you had problems, but it sounds like it was either installed incorrectly (in which case I’d like to know why, and how I can make it clearer), or there was some other error or plugin conflict (in which case I’d fix that too).
