I was really enthused adding on this plugin – seemed like finally a well thought out shopping cart for WordPress. Well its half baked.
I discovered a few issues:
- I am forced to have an “no-picture available” thumbnail next to intangible goods that do not lend themselves to having an image.
- The program does not allow me to determine the order the products are displayed – so there is no logical progression possible. For example from basic to deluxe.
- THIS IS THE WORST PART – after I deactivated the plugin and deleted it – a bunch of extra unknown pages appeared on my front page links. In a panic I went to the page list in the dashboard but the new pages were not listed there! I went back to my front end and clicked on the “edit this entry” link and switched it to private. Finally it now shows up in the dashboard page list – from which I promptly deleted it. Then I checked my front end again – and yet another page appears. I went through the same thing 3 times. I had visitors on my site at the time. I was sure my whole site was ruined.
Concussion – these guys are irresponsible. They want to sell you upgrades. Point: if you find a plugin that actually works and makes your life easier. Something you can use everyday. Be sure to reward those developers with a donation. Its so discouraging and a waste of time to wade through piles of half-baked solutions!
