Does not work

Straight after installation > 500 Internal Server Error.

Sorry, your lite version is far from the best
By , for WP 4.2.1

Sorry, your lite version is far from possibly the best way, it is actually possible the worst way and plugin for pop up, I am talking about your lite version.


Garbage Plugin
By ,

This popup plugin is the best way to drive away traffic to your site. SPAM.

Don't bother
By , for WP 4.0

Ditto what others say here. The devs of this plugin are not interested in usability. A settings page jam packed with hideous ads, blinking arrows, etc. I don't even know where to begin! I never found any kind of serious documentation or answers, only more ads.

Not a great plugin
By , for WP 3.9.2

I needed a versatile plugin that allowed for easy editing of the Popup. This looked promising. I looked past all the ads. I finally figured out how to edit it. This would have fit my needs except you cannot get rid of the text box. There is no option to not have it be a newsletter signup popup. Popups are used for all kinds of purposes, so why make this plugin (which has potential even if it is clunky and awkward) so limited? Why make inserting images so dang clunky? This plugin is not intuitive at all.

Had to Uninstall
By , for WP 1.3.9

This was conflicting with Woocommerce and not allowing me to view the settings screen in Woo commerce. I didnt debug. Simply uninstalled and now everything works ok.

Im sure it would be a great plugin to use but worried what else may have been affected.

Lite version is quite useless
By , for WP 3.9.2

Thank you for a nice demo. Propably the pro is awesome.

How do you add an image???
By , for WP 3.9

Why does it have to be so complicated to add a simple image. Ridiculous!!

Lackluster: Hostile devs, No support, Unprofessional, Plugin doesn't work
By , for WP 3.9.1

There's a reason this plugin has a high number of poor reviews. It doesn't work and the devs didn't provide support. They did nothing! I have all the emails to back up my statements.

Ruel and Dean were provided the exact information of what wasn't working. Instead of troubleshooting it, all Ruel did was turn the plugin on (I had deactivated when it wasn't working) and said it was fine, when it wasn't. They didn't even bother to look at the specific information they were given on what wasn't working. Instead, I was subjected to multiple emails of a highly hostile nature from Dean. That is exactly what lackluster is, and they are deserving of the feedback. It's fair, and it's honest. But Dean doesn't want people to be honest, and conceded to being entirely unprofessional.

Instead of actually looking into what the exact issue was, after being given all the information, he spent time which could have been used for actual support to instead act childish and refusing any support at all, attempting to blame me when they had all the information.

I ultimately had to change the password for the login he was given to prevent them from engaging in unethical practices or carrying out any intents to cause harm to the site. I felt it was necessary given his unstable emotional state, represented in the (non)support responses. At the same time I changed the login, I also uninstalled the non-working plugin. That was 14 hours before his last email conceding to his unprofessional behavior. I chose to use WPMU instead. It's stable and it works.

They're running quite a racket with their claim the plugin works with any theme. It doesn't. They also divert support from the forum to ZenDesk, undoubtedly in an attempt to skew public perceptions of their support and plugin's performance.

I have all the emails which documents they were given all the information, and it also documents they did nothing. There was no support. If there actually had been, this would be a non-issue.

These guys rank up there with the worst devs ever, and they got told so. I don't tolerate that kind of decorum from my 12 yr old.

Couldn't set it up
By , for WP 3.8.1

I tried installing this plugin twice, trying to get it to work, but I ran into the same problem both times. In attempting to set up the plugin, I got an error message (orange outline, inside the text box for the pop-up text) about the default settings and that it would load the page. The page would refresh with the same error message, and try to reload again. This happened continuously until I finally closed the browser. I tried logging out of WordPress and logging back in again; I got the same result. As I mentioned above, I tried deleting and re-installing the plugin, but I got the same result.
