Great plugin but worst licensing model ever
By , for WP 4.4.1

The plugin is great, but it's licensing model is clearly aimed to one-man-wordpress-shops doing stuff directly on the production systems. Professional service companies or teams of people developing a wordpress site will seen be really frustrated by its lack of "development licenses" - and nobody is paying 10 licenses to support 10 developer environments for one production site!

Every time a developer forgets to disable NGFB after importing the current production database state, it fucks up the license-host-mapping on NGFBs central system, your production site has no more NGFB pro running and you have to write a nonsense support issue to clear the mapping (e.g. license now pointing to https://mysite.myname.dev.mycompany.com instead of https://mysite.com). The developer of NGFB doesn't even try to understand the problem with its licensing model and should orientate on really successful plugins like WPML, Gravity Forms and such, who supply Developer License plans.

Excellent plugin

Does everything it should an more. It's a bit more work to manage images for it, but it's well worth the trouble.

Lots of notifications for non-available features
By ,

I was a bit behind with updates due to one plugin (not yours) blocking updates. I updated today and I got, like, at least 3 notifications of features that I should set up more properly, standing to what they said (some caching expiration too low, some content filter or whatever). Oh, there was also a huge badge on top saying "thanks for installing NGB blabla" except I didn't install it, I just updated.

Now, the reason for admin notifications should be pretty serious to me (ever wondered what would happen if all plugins, when updated, showed up a notification?). I could even accept notifications that pointed out real improvements achievable by different setups, but WHAT I CANNOT ACCEPT is notifications pointing out settings changes that, oh well, are only available to PRO users (which I'm not). So 2 things:

  • You're against the WP repo restrictions, which state that all code in free plugins, and all implemented features must be fully-functional, and not just dummy waiting for cash to come in.
  • You're being an annoying nuisance to users, displaying notices about things they can't use.

This plugin can work however fine you want, but I won't stick with people who don't follow the rules and pick users by the nose.

Easy to install. Missing FB og:Image tag in free version.
By ,

Easy install.
No instructions that I could find, but pretty easy to figure out after poking around.

But.... no facebook og:image tag, which is the most useful Meta tag (for me).

So, unfortunately, for my needs, worthless.
