This is a fantastic tool for creating quick landing pages and combined with the WP Leads and WP Calls to Action you can get a handle on your stats without using other tracking/stats service providers.
I found it easy enough to work out after installing that I had a landing page done and ready in about half an hour.
Error in instalation:
Fatal error: Invalid opcode 153/1/8. in /home/diamix/www/site/wp-content/plugins/landing-pages/landing-pages.php on line 124
Does what it says it does and it's also very good for beginners and for advanced users.
Great job guys!
I used this plugin to create some LP using my theme... very nice! I had a problem with the access to the db and you guys helped me on Sunday... I really appreciated your help! Now the LP are online in just 2 hours of my job.
I used this Plugin on two completely seperate hosting environments, and in both cases the entire site was affected negatively. Random reformats, 404 errors, complete incompatibility with everything else on the site.
As soon as we clicked 'deactivate' on this plugin, everything worked with the site again.
I love the idea, its a very needed plugin, but man, what a nightmare.
I had such hope for this plugin - the functionality would have been perfect. Except that it tanked multiple other plugins that are critical to my site.
So disappointing - I hope you can bring all of this promising functionality to fruition.
(It would help if this plugin worked on earlier versions of PHP as well.)
I'd love to upgrade this review in future if the plugin gets sorted out.
I was fill of excitement when I installed the plugin, but after trying it out, it was nothing but bullquack (Pardon my vocab). I trusted it. Anyways, I really would like you guys to update it. PLEASE. I don't know what's going on, but I can't insert form, I don't see the themes when I do the launch editing. Improve it please.
I've spent more time hoping that this plugin would work. It has such a good feature set and it could be extremely useful. I really really want it to work. However, I've been working with it over the course of 6 or 8 months and it never, ever works 100%.
I get Ajax not enabled constantly, it loses connection, the form review doesn't work and blames "WordPress 3.9.1 wonkiness." That's a poor excuse, especially considering that WP is very stable software.
The plugin slows down my entire site. I'm just about fed up. The cool features are just not worth the trouble. Oh, and my theme was built to work with this plugin so compatibility is no excuse. Quit adding features and focus on building stable software.
Running the newest version of WordPress and the plugin. It is just full of broken stuff. Tabs that don't work, the WordPress editor broken. Would be about time for a major bugfix release. Seems to be very poor quality (not even Alpha) - works way worse than any other plugin I have considered using (for other features).
Bought the MailChimp Integration plugin - didn't work until I activated it by first installing WordPress Leads. The settings tabs in Landing Pages is one of the many broken parts.
Gave 2 stars, just for the hope.
Overall, this is a pretty good plugin and no one can complain about the business model, free plugin and some paid templates.
I would have liked to see more sample templates included with different layouts, and I think the documentation & videos for developing your own templates could be a little more thorough.
A word of warning for those of you developing your own templates - DO NOT put periods (.) in the name of your template directory on the file system. For example, do not name your template dir
2014.04.26-squeeze-1. The dashes (-) are fine, but the periods will cause your template and resulting landing page to have so many issues, you'll tear your hair out!
The file name is used in the code, and the periods are not escaped or stripped out. At least, this was the case for me on a Linux system, but I'm betting Windows systems will have the same issue, as I'm pretty sure this was at a PHP level.
