• I read this entry and do not see a free version only a 14 day trial.

    This plugin directory is based upon having a free version and grudgingly allowing pro version bait and switch for a real fill featured plugin.

    Maybe I am missing the free version some where but I believe this plugin should not be allowed to get FREE advertise here and NOT provide a permanent FREE version.

    Anyone else agree?

    Hi @cng11

    Thank you for your opinion. Here are the plugin guidelines that all the plugins here should follow https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-org/detailed-plugin-guidelines/, including us.

    The plugin is free and distributed under the GPLv2 license.
    Social Web Suite plugin works with a cloud base service and this plugin is an add-on to a Software as a service (SaaS) solution like many others here. It’s a free plugin (it doesn’t cost to use) that works with a premium SaaS Social Web Suite service.

    However, as you can see from the admin answer here https://wordpress.org/support/topic/dont-plugins-on-wp-org-need-to-be-free-to-use/, as well as from the guidelines above, the plugins don’t need to be free to be listed on the WP.org directory. There are other things that plugin developers should abide by in order to list their plugin here. We are aware of all of them and follow them closely.

    #modlook As this is not a review of the plugin, rather a mere opinion or a start of the conversation, would you be so kind to please remove this 1-star review?

    @cng11 If you want to start a conversation with us please make sure to start it at the right place, for example here https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/social-web-suite/ (support thread).

    Hope this helps.
    Thank you!
