Limited Features, Works Well
By , for WP 4.0

This is a fantastic way to provide instructions to clients in the backend and I'm glad someone thought of creating it! It works great but here are some of my gripes with it, which are either missing or not easy enough to find:

  1. I'd love to use the custom tabs but the regular integration into the Help tab looks so much better, so it'd be great if the tab was more easily customizable.
  2. I looked all over for how to set which page it shows up on before finally finding the information here on the plugin page. I agree that it could be more intuitive, or at least include notes on how to use it.
  3. Adding it to New Post pages with the url works fine, but I'd like those instructions to show up on the Edit Post page as well, and the url for that specifies the post id. Adding it to just post.php doesn't allow for custom post types.
  4. The settings page is a bit confusing and over-explained. More succinct wording might help, mostly at the end. For example, all that's really needed for the Default Viewing Level setting is something like "Set the Viewing Level of non-logged-in users when showing on the front end."

All in all I love the plugin though, and thanks for making it! Now I don't have to set up alert links in my functions file.

Limited experience, but so far looks great!
By , for WP 3.6.1

I've only just started giving this plugin a go, so my experience is limited, but so far it looks very promising!

My only gripe being that the Page Name area is pretty confusing initially. It would be great to make this area a little more intuitive.

This is a solid little plugin that works very well. Hopefully I can return with a more in-depth review when I get a little more experience with it under my belt, see if I can bump up my review to a full 5-star :)
