1 star because they promote their plugin or do their seo by spamming wordpress sites.

BREAKS WOOCOMMERCE
By , for WP 4.1.1

May break rest of blog, did not check. Instantly turned it off. No other popup function active.

It broke my website.
By , for WP 4.1

Using the newest version of wordpress, with the vantage premium theme installed, it broke my website. When opened in different browsers, it stripped my website of all images, and design. i.e. my website was just links and text. Uninstalled immediately and it was fixed.

Don't buy the full-blown plugin!
By , for WP 4.1

I bought the plugin to use with WP 4.1 and it was a disaster. 80% of the functionality (as described in the documentation and knowledge base) does not exist or work. It took me a full week working with their support person just to get a couple of the popups to work as advertised. Still, much of the functionality is missing. DON'T BUY the purchased plugin - you will regret it.

bad

buggy, not responsive, stupid ads

Lightweight and works great.
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am testing this in a lightweight theme which contains a couple of plugins including another Lightbox plugin for images. This plugin runs great. It is easy to use and it can hold shortcodes inside of it.

Premium features are for deeper customizations like: automatically close on timeout, target devices, image overlay instead of solid color, etc..

Note to developer: My only suggestion at the moment is to list free features and premium features with a little more description on what they do. And I don't think the big banners to buy are necessary. If someone is using the plugin, the features themselves are enough selling point.

:: Reduced from 5 stars to 4 because of excessive purchase banners and branding on the plugin's page.

:: Reduced from 4 stars to 3 stars because it messes up Google Analytics while having the default "display as iframe" option on. Every page reports as /index.php?xyz_lbx=iframe ... I don't know if there is a solution for this, but it is definitely inconvenient.

Too intrusive
By , for WP 3.8.1

Too intrusive, too many ads. Now do mind that this isn't the only plugin I've installed, and most plugins do have some sort of promotional stuff in them. But this one was just too much. Uninstalled it right away.

love it, bought the Pro version ...

I see you've released an updated, for the regular and Pro versions. Are you able to provide a changelog? Thanks!
