    This developer has become greedy!

    I use this plugin, and up until this upgrade I could use my own icon's (free of charge) and have them display.

    Now the developer has become greedy and you must upgrade to "pro" to use other icons .... unbelievable!

    I too am very, VERY disappointed that there is now a pro version of this plugin.

    After just one day the price changed from $2.99 to $1.99, and then there is the subscription fee of $1.00/month. This is ridiculous. My hosting is only slightly more than that! Maybe $1.00 + $0.10/month would be more palatable!?

    Bring back the option to enter the path to custom icons.

    For now, I'm simply going to overwrite the files supplied as default with my own custom icons.

    You can't justify paying a premium to use "custom icons" that aren't even your own @tompokress! Yes, I know I could add my own custom images if I bought the pro version but this twist truly sucks.

    So, the developer has finally come up with a way to be paid for his work which was previously available free of charge. Why would you consider that "greedy?"

    I simply think that it is a bit cheeky that somebody should pick up this well established plugin that was developed by 3 people before him and immediately looks to monetise the project.

    Downgrading a plugin then calling it an upgrade is something more than "greedy", James. I'm thinking "deceptive".

    Right now it's $9.99 + $4/month subscription for the pro version.
    Yikes.
