    I hate to give bad reviews, but this plugin is ridiculously over-engineered….

    First, you have to install another plugin (Staff List) to get it to work, then it’s another 30 minutes going through all the settings (…and that was with using the “Quick Start”) and filling in your details etc. Then you have to install this plugin addon, and then it’s another 30 minutes going through all of this plugins settings again and re-entering all of the same data you just entered into the first plugin (you are joking, right?) and THEN you have to create a QR code, again filling in all the (same) details one-by-one (and then save it, which btw then caused a fatal error on my site…) and THEN you have to create a new page and insert a shortcode for the vCard to work… utterly ridiculous. But wait, there’s more……

    End result after wasting over an hour? – Nothing is showing up on the new page I just created and added the shortcode to, because – and wait for it – it seems the page that you just created is essentially worthless! and you then have to go somewhere else in the plugin settings to get a link in order to get the vCard to display……. how ridiculous.

    Well, at this stage I just gave up, as there is no way I can give this to my clients for them to use.

    This plugin looks like it makes nice-looking vCards, but what is the use if they are this hard to create? (…and I’m a developer….. so God help my clients trying to use this…). And why have to re-enter all the same details over and over again?
