Why I can not use shortcode? That there are some mistakes.

Works, but is unreliable and requires payment
By ,

It sort of works.... but I implemented on a client site and found it unreliable, and also found it required payment in order to have anything more than the bog basic features. Overall, I think it would not be hard to do this better. ...I will have to build a plugin of my own to suit my clients needs.

Free plugin was fantastic - now it's awful
By , for WP 3.7.1

This WAS hands down the best plugin on the market if you own a gold or precious metals site.

We loved it to bits - the constant update feed was a perfect thing to have in a site header.

Unfortunately the free version is now broken. I say broken because it only updates twice a day (which is pointless) and shows $zero amounts for half the day.

To get the function the free version DID have up until a few days ago you need to subscribe at a huge monthly fee or $200 a year. If the plugin did more that would almost be worth it on a site that generates good money, but on a free informative site it makes no economic sense.

Such a shame - this was a brilliant simple plugin.

The price for the new version is beyond ridiculous.

Here's hoping that fee goes to something more realistic and we may continue using the plugin - but failing that the new free version is useless.


The Best Gold Price Plugin
By Plugin Author, for WP 3.5

This plugin works great. I have ironed out the kinks.

Please do not listen to moulan. It works just fine.

It is only 3 months old and has only been down twice.

This moulan person is 100% incorrect.

A horrible plugin, horrible

Nice but still unreliable

The idea of this service is very nice but it seems like a trial without the necessary and required manpower continuity. Today Jan 4 the database is failing again with a price that is 50 dollars out.
