Buttons disappear after update
By , for WP 4.2.2

the plugin is sadly amazing and so much hard work had been done to make it as perfect as possible. Too good to be true until until the almighty updates descend from up above, then all the amazing advanced buttons that you work hard for DISAPPEAR. Which tells any human with a functional brain DO NOT INSTALL THIS PLUGIN BECAUSE MEASRY WILL VISIT YOU AS SOON AS AN UPDATE COMES ALONG.

Do not install
By , for WP 4.2.1

Recently a plugin update was installed. And all my buttons were deleted during the update. This done, shortcodes which had put on some of my pages no longer appear. And this is not the first time this happens. This plugin is definitely deleted from my website. I advice everyone not to install this plugin, or buy, as the developer of this plugin does not rectify the problem. For it is certainly a method to force pesonnes having a free version to force them to move to a paid version.

Don't trust these people!

I paid for the "Pro" version of this a few years ago. It was supposed to be a one-time purchase and nothing was said about any "expiration date."

Now I find that my copy of the plug-in has been deactivated because my "license has expired."

Honest people don't do business this way. Don't get conned.

Excellent Plugin

Excellent plugin that I would highly recommend. I use it on two of my sites and it has never let me down.
The support for this plugin is superb too. They are always so helpful and reply very quickly to any questions I have had.
If your looking for a great button plugin that is simple to use but also looks great and is fully customizable, this is the plugin for you!

just a nightmare !

used on more than 5 websites without problem on different hosts.

After an update all the buttons disapear from de admin plugin and of course on the website !

Sorry but just a big NIGHTMARE.

Upgrade deleted all my saved buttons
By , for WP 4.1.3

Happy with the plugin..... until I upgraded to version 3.02.

This upgrade deleted all my saved buttons and now having to start from scratch.

I have revised my rating to 5 stars because I should have checked support (where I quickly found the answer) and was too hasty giving a lower score originally.

Got more than I had hoped for

Maxbuttons has provided me more than I had expected. Even setting it up was much easier than I thought, and I am very computer challenged.

But even more importantly, I had an unexplained issue with this plugin that I brought to the attention of Bas and he not only responded very quickly and consistently, he was very courteous (No hint of talking down to a Rookie like me) AND he provided a quick fix that worked right away.

It was working fine for the first couple of months, and yesterday they released an update, I updated as usual and went to sleep

I woke up and found that ALL the buttons on my website were completely missing. Overall, the buttons were missing for over 10 hours before I could get it to work again.

You just cost a user 10 hours of earnings due to your deficient development, well done guys!

Edit: Changed rating

Very simple to use and great results

I have been using this plugin on a site for "call to action" buttons and it's working fine. The plugin is extremely easy to use and can be modified to fit a lot of uses. The instructions are right here (under FAQ) and I see the author responding to comments. Works for me!
