3.5 out of 5 stars
poor support, even worse integration

save your time and go with something else.

Great plugin, very versatile!
By , for WP 4.1.1

I think this plugin is fantastic. It comes with lots of fields and allows for great customization through the use of it's shortcode. The only exception to my otherwise glowing review would be this image size bug caused when using the Canvas theme...but I still gave it 5 stars since I was able to add some CSS to get around the Canvas bug.

Works like a charm

I love it when I am teaching a WooTheme that requires this plugin. So many of the homepage areas that is uses are very well formatted and eye-catching.

WARNING: PLUGIN IS NOT READY-TO-USE

May be fine for some, but certainly not for all. To be able to use this plugin some serious php and css stuff must be done. This is more a plugin kit. You have to put it together before you can use it!!

Filter by age?
By , for WP 3.9.2

Hi! great plugin! it's possible to filter by age? I want to set to every team member his date of birth and then filter by a range of Age as:

Between 10 and 20
Between 20 and 30...

It could be possible? :)

Thanks!

Great for Coders and Theme Builders but Poor for End-Users
By , for WP 3.9.1

I was hesistant on giving this plugin a 1 star vs a 3 stars. If I were not a casual end-user, I would give it a 10 in a heartbeat. In the end I gave it one star. Sounds harsh doesn't it? Let me tell you why:

This plugin is not aimed for the casual end-user looking to add a finished product to their wordpress deployment. This is aimed for the Coders, Theme builders and integrators.

The people that come to WordPress.org are looking for finished products, not plugins that require such a major retooling like this one. If you guys want to sport such a plugin, then why not host it on WooThemes.com?? The very least you should write a disclosure explaining that.

My suggestion is a middle ground. It's great you guys offer a plugin that is vanilla enough you to can integrate it anywhere. But would it KILL you to add shortcodes that work for those of us that just want to inject the code to a page. No it would not. And since you guys are such AWESOME coders and this middleground fix would be cost effective you guys are going to get on to it right away and swing it right?

When you do, I can come back and change my review from 1 star to 3, 4 or 5. Either way thanks for a nifty contribution... now go make it better.

This is the best extension!

Do-it-yourself plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

Out of the box, you simply get nothing.
Everything has to be coded by own means.
Better develop your own plugin, it will be easier.

Nice but still a bit young
By , for WP 3.8.1

I understand the negative reviews, as I had to modify PHP files for some light customization, impossible with CSS only. More templates and customization facilities are desirable.
However I'm still satisfied with this plugin, very easy to use in the admin panel. The ".po" file for translation is perfect.
Last little regret about the shortcodes : to refer to a specific team member, I only found the "id" attribute, which refers to the post id (for example : [woothemes_our_team id="456"]). It would be great to use the team member id (for example : [woothemes_our_team member_id="jack-london"]).

more hassle than it's worth
By ,

While is shows promise, it's far from complete or even usable at this point.

It's not "some" assembly required. That assumes all the parts are in the box. This is incomplete and needs more coding before it should be deployed.

This plugin needs someone competent enough who could do whole thing from scratch on their own. What's been given here is just the basic idea, but not much to really go on.

If you have just a few people on your team, then just make the pages by hand. If you have more than a few people, then you need a programmer to create that for you. This plugin falls between those two worlds, and isn't suitable for much.
