Support » Plugin: Schema & Structured Data for WP & AMP » It might as well all be in Latin, and, you can’t get rid of it

  • If you’re some sort of software engineer who knows all about Google and AMP, maybe the tsunami of unexplained gobbledygook in this plugin means something to you.

    If, like me, you’re just a person who heard you need AMP pages to keep doing well in Google, forget it. This is the most complicated, unhelpful, hard-to-understand plugin I’ve seen in 10+ of doing WordPress. Full of acronyms and technical terms that are never explained, with help popups that link to other help popups that link to other help popups that link to other help popups without ever actually explaining anything you need to know, I still have no idea what all these thousands of obscure controls and mysterious settings do or how I’m supposed to use this to make Google happy with my site.

    Oh, but, it sure does contain a whole lot of offers for you to spend a bunch of money paying them for things, though. What are those things? Do I need them? I don’t know, it never explains them.

    After about 20 minutes, I decided to delete the plugin and get on with my life. And here’s the best part:

    You can’t get rid of it once you have it.

    I hit the “deactivate” link, and, surprise! It’s still activated. I tried deactivating and deleting from the “Apply” button on my plugins page, and same thing. No matter what I try, it stays active.

    I don’t know what it does, I don’t want it on my site, I’m really sorry I downloaded it, and now I’m stuck with it.

    Great!
