Twitter doesn't work, the function he uses is deprecated, google plus works currently, but it really shouldn't the cURL he is using does not or should not work rather!

Other than that it's a great plugin, it's a shame these platforms can't work together and make something nice for developers with actual continuous support.

These plugins will always eventually be out of date.

Plugin mostly works, poor support from developer
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin mostly works - my Pin count shows up sometimes but most times it does not.

I followed the developers instructions for properly asking for support, but they never replied.

3 out of 5 stars because the plugin has glitches and the developers won't respond to properly submitted support requests. I have also let them know that I'll adjust my review if they respond.

You can read my support thread here and judge for yourself.

Here is the thread of me reaching out to the developers on Twitter (which they instructed should be done).

creates multiple social bars per page

creates multiple social bars per page top and bottom

maybe due to some other plugin I have, but can't seem to remove the duplicates

This is awesome BUT....
By , for WP 3.7.1

I was using this plugin on a couple of sites and it worked great, clients loved it, looks fantastic, light weight and just real slick overall.

I noticed there were some performance issues on one of the sites and there seems to be a Fatal PHP error occurring from this plugin. I posted about it, as did someone else, over the last two months and there hasn't even been a response in the forum. Since there are multiple developers I couldn't seem to get in touch with them individually.

If this is fixed I'd give this plugin 6 stars but until then I'm being a meanie so hopefully someone will take care of the issue (3 stars, the plugin doesn't deserve 1 even if I still haven't received any feedback on the forums yet :)

Thank you much!!

Nicely done but errors

The plugin is slick and loads fast, but has errors and sometimes fails.
