Too many time wasting issues for me
By , for WP 3.9

Out of the box it seemed to work fine until I tried customizing a bit. From there it got frustrating very quickly. I don't like to give bad reviews for people's hard work, but I can only give 2-stars and say it works. Some issues I had ...

  • Links open in iframe window instead of parent window - no easy solution other than target="_blank", and that is not really acceptable. I tried different standard jquery / js tricks, but none worked for me
  • Custom CSS for plugin-rendered elements (eg. title) not working for me at all
  • If title is too long, it caused issues with body text
  • Random blank screen on the popover (message not visible) when switching between popup methods

It's very easy for the developers to give themselves a 5-star rating as they know the code inside out, but for me to try and figure out how it renders and correct some very basic misbehaviors, it was just too much time. Uninstalled and replaced.
