One thing I really dislike about this plugin that I think you guys should strongly consider changing is that when this plugin is activated, it comes with like 18 videos that get published through the plugin activation. (Does it really need to come with that many?)
This is horrible because my website automatically Indexed these videos and the internet was sending people to these video URL’s, and they are videos that are completely irrelevant to my website. Also, because the SEO Titles of these video posts contained my website name, people who had Google Alerts for my website name received these random video posts and Google Alerts, which could’ve been flagged as irrelevant and hurt my traffic/rep/seo/etc. This is something I really dislike.
Anyhow, after activating this plugin I immediately go to all Video Gallery admin> all videos and delete these unnecessary video posts. However, I learned that they were STILL living in my database even though I thought I had deleted them through the plugin’s admin.
I can only access them through another plugin (WordPress SEO by Yoast) which, through its latest update, allows people to go to SEO Admin> Bulk Title Editor.
I found all of these videos as still “published” on my site, and through this Yoast plugin, I was able to link to the video gallery where I could see all of the videos published on the Contus plugin. This is where I could see all of these original videos that I thought I had deleted, and they were still published.
Since they were indexed, now that they are deleted they are probably also turning up 404’s.
Is there any way to access this video gallery/collection of video posts through the plugin? the Video Gallery>All Videos is not a true indicator of the actual video posts that have been or are published through the plugin.
And secondly, can you guys please in an update fix this issue of the plugin coming in with these many video posts?
I was going to leave a review mentioning this but I want to bring this up in support before I mention it in reviews.
I otherwise love the plugin.
