Support » Plugin: WP Webhooks » Useless for most purposes unless you buy pro

  • If you intend on passing data, and then trying to arbitrarily create posts based on that data, this won’t do it. You’ll need the pro version.

    At $40 per site, it’s waaaaaay cheaper to just write your own script. Or even hire someone to write it out for you.

    $40 for basic webhook logic is just highway robbery.

    Do yourself a favor and pass on this.

    Hey @happysolicitor

    I’m sorry that you were not satisfied with our product.
    I don’t exactly understand your issue since it is, of course, possible to create posts with our free version as well.
    The only difference is that the pro version offers a post meta integration (regarding your functionality).

    We calculated the 40$ based on the support and features we offer/create, otherwise, we simply couldn’t afford to work on it as strict as we do.

    I would be happy to help you on clarifying if what you were looking for is really not possible with the free version either.
    Feel free to reach out to me here or via our website https://ironikus.com/ (There’s a live chat which makes communication for us more convenient:) )

    Hope to hear from you!

    @ironikus This review feedback. I have removed the modlook tag added when you reported this topic.

    Also thanks for the great support but please lose the signature. That’s prohibited in these forums as it’s been horribly abused in the past by others.

    Yes, bad people ruin it for others. Please refrain from that.

    @happysolicitor – Are there any news on that? I’d be happy to help.

    @ironikus I cannot believe you actually reported my post for moderation by admins. Why?

    I’m a user. I have a right to use your product, consider its value and then share my subjective opinion on how valuable I feel your product is and whether or not I think others should use it too.

    That’s my right.

    That’s the whole purpose behind these reviews.

    I gave my subjective opinion and you reported my review apparently for no other reason than that you don’t like the fact that I gave one star.

    So, to clarify for other users who might encounter this:

    I don’t like your product. I didn’t find it useful. I found your marketing strategy to be deceptive. Your product fails to meet even the lowest bar for webhook functionality for wordpress.

    The restrictions you have made on the non-paid version is so restrictive, that it fails to really qualify as a webhook plugin anymore.

    That’s sad, because this was the only plugin for it.

    So, if you want to have a constructive dialogue, then you’re gonna have to show some good faith here and explain why you felt reporting a rightfully posted review was an acceptable answer to a negative review of your product.

    So, how about it? Why did you think it was ok to report my review for moderation? Why did you feel that was warranted? What rules for WordPress.org did I break?

    If there was any doubt before about your business practices, I’d say you’ve made them crystal clear in your behavior of reporting a review simply because it was negative in nature.

    I didn’t like your product and I have a right to state so in my review.

    One star stands. I’d have made it three stars if it just didn’t work. I reserve one star for plugins that I feel use predatory practices like baiting and switching on the user.

    If you can successfully convince me that this is all a big misunderstanding and that there really are not shady practices at play, then I’ll change it to a 3 star review. (No higher, because again, it doesn’t qualify as even a basic webhook application by my standards.)

    Given your response to my initial post however, I’m disinclined to believe you’ll respond in a satisfactory manner.

    I could be proven wrong however…

    Hey @happysolicitor – thanks a lot for coming back to me and for taking the time to explain in detail why you were giving the review.

    The main reason I reported the review was not out of the purpose to report it because it’s negative, but because I can’t see the truth within the explanation you wrote and I assumed it was a false statement. What I mean by that is, that the case you mentioned that it is not possible to arbitrarily create posts with the free version is wrong within my understanding.

    To really get the point you criticize, I would like to get some more information from you what you were exactly looking for and where you had trouble to do stuff with the free version.
    The only difference we have if it comes to creating a post is, that you can’t create meta values with the free version.
    So in my understanding, creating the post should not be an issue, but I’m happy to hear your version of it.

    My goal is definitely not to only provide the free version for the sake of selling a premium version. I always try to keep the current version lean and functional to do, as you mentioned as well, the basic webhook actions.

    I fully respect critic and as well as your personal, subjective opinion, but I often wait to get a more constructive opinion that really helps me understand what is going wrong or where it needs optimization.
    In my subjective opinion, your review wasn’t really helpful to me and also a bit rough since you call the plugin “useless” and a “highway robbery”, which I just can’t agree on because I put a lot of effort into it to provide something like that.

    If you don’t share my opinion on that, I will fully accept that, but I would like to, at least, show you that this plugin is not made to only sell a premium version.
    If there is something missing that you would like to have within a free version, I would also like to get that as a critic within a review since I don’t say “no” to any kind of suggestions just for the sake of sales.

    I hope what I wrote makes sense to you and I would really like to discuss this with you directly further to solve that and bring both of us on the same path.

    Thanks already a lot for taking the time to read the message.

    Hey @happysolicitor – I hope you could review my last messages. Since this topic is really important to me, I would appreciate an answer from your end.
    In case you have questions, feel free to reach out.

    @happysolicitor – I’m not a developer or anything, but I was able to create as much posts as I want with the free version as well.
    I think one star is way to underrated for this plugin since the value it adds is far above what your review specifies.

    @ironikus – thanks again for your great work and don’t listen to those comments!
    Keep up the good work!
