I tried to like it, but i can't
By , for WP 4.3.1

I tried to use this plugin several times, with different themes and different WordPress versions. The first time i tried it was several years ago and now i find the exact same ugly code i saw the first time i tried it.

br tags between images. Really? br tags? The plugin breaks the What's new form UX. Broken code everywhere. The code just don't make sense, i don't know how this even work. You need a degree just to understand it, and another one to make changes without breaking everything else.

I'm wasting more time fixing this plugin than i needed to build the rest of my website. I even tried to share my code, but i'm not good enough to make code that it's worth sharing.

I'm sorry if i'm being rude, but i hate laziness, specially when it hurts the community. Finding the exact same code i saw several years ago just made me mad. What would think someone who is trying Buddypress for the first time and he installs this plugin? What would he think when he tries it a few years later and it's the exact same ugly code? I can tell you, because i'm that user. I'm starting to think this is not an isolated problem, iirc i had similar problems with other WPMU DEV plugins.

Are you trying to lure users to your paid support? Because if not, then i don't understand it.

The worst thing is that the only alternative to this plugin is the paid version of rtMedia. I always end coming back to rtMedia, but i'm too poor to pay for plugins or storage (almost 30% unemployment in my country, it's not an overstatement). I NEED this plugin.

Please, update the plugin, we are in 2015, it's not 2010 anymore. PLEASE.

This saved me a ton of time in one department and needlessly cost me time in another.

Wrapping forms with ugly css classes using JS? Enqueuing plugin css after child theme css? Bad!

Not possible French translation
