NEVER use it, messed up the Sitemap
By , for WP 4.0.1

Hello All,

I used this plugin once, and it messed up my sitemap. I couldn't get support in my topic. He didn't reply, or even didn't see probably..
Anyway he does not have to help us, but Please be Aware that plugin is not Complete, and missing.

Even if you totally remove the plugin, the damage on sitemap stays. It is adding another sitemap xml for viewing it, and plugin is changing it's url to a static one, when you remove the plugin, it does not revert, so your sitemap will be never working anymore, at the end i used totally different way for my sitemap.

Stay away from this plugin, because it is not complete, and makes troubles..

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.5.2

The idea with this plugin is great but this plugin doesn't work. The few ties it's generating files it's saving them in a folder like /wp-content/plugins/really-static/static and redirecting your entire blog to that directory. Who want to have a blog like that?
The S3 upload isn't working either. Nothing is uploaded at all.
The error messages you get are poorly written, but in most cases completely impossible to understand. You need to know German to at least understand a little of this plugin.

Broken code
By , for WP 3.5.1

Trying to publish via SFTP gives me code errors on an improperly written get_class() call on /php/sftp/SSH2.php line 1247. I get this error on a single-site installation.

Also, on a multisite installation, even if installed on single site, the plugin will throw errors on rewrite.php line 109 and admin.php line 508 for an incorrectly called get_blog_details().

URLs do not rewrite correctly in generated files
By , for WP 3.5

The URLs in the generated files have duplicate paths and slashes. No links to posts work. Plus CSS files and static assets do not link correctly as a result of this.

For example, a generated link:
domain.com/wp-content/plugins/really-static/static//wp-content/plugins/really-static/static/my-post-name/

This should be, but no file is found there either:
domain.com/wp-content/plugins/really-static/static/my-post-name/

I am using version 0.31 of this plugin.

completely broken at this point
By , for WP 3.4.2

EN is not the authors native language and that adds to the difficulty as i cannot read german. at any rate, the instructions are incomplete and the version information for different builds is confusing - the development build is apparently 0.43, yet the release is 0.520121012. which is which?

0.43, which is supposed to be latest development snapshot, produces no static files

hopefully the developer is responsive and this can be worked out
