Support » Plugin: Blog2Social: Social Media Auto Post & Scheduler » Useful… but a pain for your admin…

  • This plugin does a good job of auto cross-posting blog posts to various social sites. This saves our blogger some time with posting the same posts in other locations.

    However, from an IT perspective, this plugin is awful! Every month (sometimes more often) they release an update for the plugin. Unlike most other wordpress plugins, this plugin ceases functioning until the update is applied… preventing the blogger’s assigned postings, thus making updating the plugin into an IT emergency.

    Not only that… but unlike most other WP plugins, you can not simply update it by clicking an update link within WP. The update requires deactivating, then deleting the plugin and then manually downloading the new version plugin and installing as a zip file. Which makes this too complicated for the blogger to self-service. Thus the plugin creates an “IT emergency” every 2-4 weeks.

    I wouldn’t be as offended by the extra labor if this plugin was not SO EXPENSIVE. For over $100/year in subscription, I would expect them to find a better programmer who could make this app update seamlessly like most other WP plugins.
