Support » Plugin: Video PopUp » Version 1.0.3 seriously cripples the plugin

  • I usually don’t like giving bad reviews and prefer to ignore bad plugins, but there’s something about the last update that’s just dead plain wrong. Let me start by saying plugin works. That’s good news. But, here’s the bad thing. What the developer basically did in the last update is take away pretty much all of the functionality of the plugin in version 1.0.2 and make it premium only feature. I don’t mind people charging for plugins, hey I myself am paying many many dollars a year for multiple premium plugins, but taking aways existing functionality and even worse adding features that make the pop-ups look worse just to force people to buy the premium plugin is just plain wrong. In one “minor” update (1.0.2 to 1.0.3) this plugin went from fully functional to crippled. That’s bad bad way of making business.

    My comment is:

    No!

    You have not used version 1.0.2 In the version 1.0.2 there are no features, just one feature (autoplay), the idea was Shortcode and Autoplay feature inside the shortcode only. The autoplay feature is still free within version 1.0.3!

    What I did with the new version is that I have designed a new design and put out new features such as SoundCloud (free) MP4 Videos (free) and Visual Popup builder for free, and I have developed other paid features.

    I told you that you have not used version 1.0.2. The old version was bad design, now the design is new and free!

    I told you that you have not used version 1.0.2.

    The method of using the version 1.0.2 is:
    [video_popup url=”” text=”” autoplay=””]

    The new method in the version 1.0.3 is:

    • Using the Popup Builder (free) or the same Shortcode (free).
    • Youtube & Vimeo & SoundCloud & MP4, all is free.
    • Autoplay (free) for Youtube & Vimeo & SoundCloud & MP4.
    • Rel Nofollow (free).
    • Title (free).
    • A new design (free).
    • And other features paid, you are not forced to buy them, and not buying them does not hinder the work of plugin!

    Good luck.
