Beware!!! Messed up my site!
By , for WP 4.2.2

After installing this plugin I added a Google WebFonts link tag for a font I wanted on my site.

I added that in the appropriate box in the settings, added the CSS to my theme's CSS page and when I reloaded my site, all it loaded were the images in a scrolling plugin and the unformatted text on the page - no menu, no sidebar - nothing - just the images and the text.

I removed the link tag I added, but that didn't fix it. Then I disabled and uninstalled the plugin - still screwed up.

After comparing this site to another WP site I manage I realized that the entire contents of the <head> tag are missing - including the <head> tag itself. That's not something I could have done - I haven't touched any code related to the header.php file or the <head> tag itself.

So I spent the next half hour trying to track down the developer - there's a comments-type setup on his web page for the plugin, but when I tried to create an account to post a comment, I got a warning that my IP was blocked. WHAT?!? I'm in the middle of rural Minnesota on a national ISP's Internet connection.

There's also a page for the plugin here, but the Support Form link in the menu brings you to a 404 page.

I can't find any way to get a hold of the developer to find out how to fix his mess.
