    It is what it is.

    I have no idea of what you mean by “static notification” but if your theme already provides what this plugin provides then obviously you don’t need this plugin, however people who are using themes that adhere to the WordPress guidelines may find it useful as themes should not provide features that are clearly plugin territory.

    The plugin works as described and a lot of people find it useful: http://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/alligator-popup?filter=5 including one person who left a five star review with the words “Works as Expected”

    I’m not sure what you were expecting the plugin to do. It is clear that you either did not read the plugin description or did not understand it, and do not understand that the word ‘popup’ can be used to describe a few different things including what this plugin provides: a new browser window which appears when a link is clicked.

    If you had any questions about the plugin’s usage you should has posted a new topic in the plugin’s support forum before leaving such a pointless review and I would have been glad to have provided clarification there.

    Next time you feel the need to leave a poor and ill considered review for a plugin, it would be a good idea to read and take note of the content of this article first: http://pippinsplugins.com/how-to-leave-a-good-bad-review/

    I do apologise for the short and sharp (and negative) review. The plugin clearly did not work as expected with my theme. I didn’t get a popup window at all as shown in your screenshot.
    I should have contacted you through the support forum, you are quite correct. I am happy to give it another go when I have a little more time and more than happy for this review to be removed. I can’t see how to do it. I do appreciate the time you and other developers take to make WP so good, sorry again.
