Destroyed the markdown in our posts, two weeks and no update from developers
By , for WP 4.1.3

So it turns out that CoSchedule has a nasty little bug which strips markdown from posts. We've attempted to raise this with the developers directly to no avail, and even when they fix it, we will still have lost all of the markdown formatting from our content.

I had always viewed reviews of CoSchedule with an air of skepticism knowing that they offer a discount on subscriptions for reviews, (they even mandate word count and the use of images in such pieces) bear this in mind when considering their now even costlier subscriptions.

Not free, doesn't belong on this website
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is a very useful plugin, I can't say much bad about it really, however as it's just a trial version I think it does not belong into the wordpress plugin respository. Basically this plugin page is just advertisement for their paid premium service.

I do not mind them charging for it and I would probably buy it myself, but I hate people who use the respository to simply promote and sell their stuff, without offering a real free version.

Like one user said it before "This plugin does not give back anything to the wordpress community".
Either offer a real free version (not a trial) or sell it solely on your own website, like others do.

So just one star for their greedy marketing behaviour.

Anti open source? freemium
By , for WP 3.9.1

So you get what you pay for and I love premium plugins. However, this is not a premium plugin but a cloud service disguised as a premium plugin. It does not fit the open source community code.

I would rather pay $100 - $300 one time and with 1 year support etc.

But then again, it does use API integrations so maybe the cost is higher for the developers?

My major major issue is no free version. I would love to use the editorial calendar on all my blogs and maybe the schedule feature on some of my blogs.

This plugin does not give back anything to the wordpress community and I will be happy to see editorial calendar step their game up with a free and premium version just for calendars (as one time fee).

We have over 10 blogs to run.

7 hours Wasted... Doesn't Work
By , for WP 3.9.1

I spent 7 hours trying to get the plugin to work, I even offered the pay the company for the year. All I got was automated emails and one email from a person that claims they are the co-founder of the company. Wow, what a joke. The initial email ask you what made you choose them, but it is automated. They surely are clueless when it comes to customer service.

Free or Paid

I'll change my review when you make this free. If not, take it out of the repository. This repository is for free plugins.

Couldn't get it to work
By , for WP 3.8

Using latest version of wordpress, with only a few plugins activated, I couldn't get it to work properly. The problem seems to lie in CoSchedule's 'getting started' mode. It just froze, and there was no way to get past or around that. Wouldn't recommend either the plugin or the service.

Only for 14 days free ...
By , for WP 3.8

Nice idea of the plugin, but this version is only for 14 days free.
Otherwise you need to pay $10 each month.
I don't know, why there's a need of a monthly plan instead of buying the plugin just for ONE time.
I use a lot of premium WP plugins, but I purchased them for $20 or $30 one time, and not as monthly plans. Purchasing one time is okay, but monthly plans not.

The other thing I don't like, is the weird - and annoying - view within my WordPress in an iframe - also not necessary and the double scrolling is annoying.
