  • The plugin works great, developer site looks nice and is well documented BUT…

    Yes this plugin is lightweight just like we all want it to be, instead of packing a plugin full of features most people probably don’t use this developer has kept this plugin lean and simple. Install only the core interments and add features by add-ons, kudos for that but I have to say, it’s a tiny bit sad that you have to pay for almost everything you going to add to this plugin. I think there are 4 or 5 Free add-ons and those are so low quality that you probably could ask anybody on this forum to create them for you.

    It feels a little bit like a promising iOS app for Free and after one day you’ll notice that you need to to spend 75,- on in-app sales to make it really work.

    I don’t mind paying for good code, don’t understand me wrong but I think the balance is a little bit off in favor of the developer here.
    I can create a lot myself but for people who don’t, this plugin is gonna charge them about 99,- to make it really work.

    The suitcase (Post Type) icon could be scaled down a few pixels if you ask me.
    Premium is okay but make your premium products standout and don’t use a free icon-font as a company logo, company branding and almost anything and anywhere you look on the developer site you’re going to stop the Font Awesome type.
    That’s a bit cheap and fast approach if you ask me.

    Still 4 stars for keeping this plugin nice and simple, that’s what plugins should be all about!

    If a new feature makes sense to be in the core plugin, it will be – it won’t be an addon. But when we’re talking about application management, resumes, paid listing stuff I think that justifies an addon (is there any add-on in particular you feel should be core?)

    I hope you didn’t rate me down because of that because that doesn’t really have anything to do with the plugin itself 😛

    I took your advice and had a little maskot made for the logo 🙂
