This *would* be great with more on-page control
By , for WP 4.1

This tool would be great - if only I could make it show on a WordPress Page (not a Post) - and only on the ONE page I want it to.

Ideally, I would want to wrap the link to it around a button image saying "Click here to tell your friends"

A shortcode or URL to open up the popup would be ideal.

Also the "Enable features" > "Share on social networks" control does not work optimally. If this is not ticked/checked, the icon for facebook and twitter continue to still show on the blog post, but when clicked, opens up the popup, which does not have the social options.

It would make more sense, if "Share on social networks" is not ticked, to not show the icon on the blog post.

My main wish for this plugin it to have a shortcode to add to a single certain Page (the PHP code snippet did not work).

Form has no security & can send email to any email address with any message
By , for WP 4.0

My hosting co said they had a problem with spam coming from my site and shut down my email. After investigating further, they wrote:

Upon further review, it looks like your recommend to a friend plugin is the culprit here. The form can be used to send email to any email address with any message and has no security measure to prevent bots, such as a captcha security measure.

We will need to leave the mail disabled for this account until the form is removed from the site or secured.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Great tool :-)

Would be even better, if I could figure out how to integrate the recommend field into a post ;-)

Plugin conflicts with Slider
By , for WP 3.8

The plugin caused our headline slider to not show up.

Bad formatting of widget title
By , for WP 3.6.1

The plugin doesn't use the widget title area as a widget title. As a result the widget title has a horrible formatting. Too bad because if this was made to work like any other widget box works as far as formatting goes, it would have been a pretty good plugin.

That said, I can see that it hasn't been updated in 2 years now.. I suspect the author no longer supports it.
