Brought a lot of trouble
By , for WP 4.1.1

We downloaded the plugin and bought the "Maker" Add-on. Which gave us a lot of technical problems.
Contacting the developer didn't help, since he never answered our support request. So we uninstalled it and place the lost money to the "i should have known better" category

Bottomline, if you pay fo the add-ons, don't expect any support :(

Be upfront about pro version
By , for WP 4.1

Be upfront about pro version. Waste of time.

Very Dangerous Plugin
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin appears to rewrite code in other files or leave files behind after you delete it. In my case, after I deleted Shortcodes Ultimate, my WP Dashboard has become inaccessible. This means that I can't even re-install in order re-activate it for toubleshooting. Even if I use FTP to upload I still can't activate it. Once this plugin is activated it acts like a parasite that can never be removed from its host.

It would be great if Vladimir or MadFork could supply me with some instructions on how to untangle this plugin from my site so that I can get back into the Dashboard. Can someone help me out?

Created Conflicts with Featured image
By , for WP 4.1

I don't know where all of the positive reviews for this are coming from. I have had several problems and no response to support request. The last straw was a conflict with a Genesis theme where it caused my featured images to be mixed up. Took it off and all is well.

Intrusive self-promotion
By ,

Vladimir Anokhin has a backend pop-up message that wants you to rate his plug-in.

I think the message is rude, intrusive and abusive.

WordPress must do something to stop on-site sales messages, including nag screens for reviews. They are destroying the idea of WordPress and possibly violating the WordPress terms of service.

Do what I do--I delete all plug-ins with intrusive self-promotion. An otherwise okay plug-in is wasted by these commercials.

Infected with hidden link
By ,

As soon as I activated this plugin I noticed a hidden spam link in the body tag of every page using wp_head() to a spam site searchsongs.net and 4shared. If you've activated this plugin, you might want to inspect your site, as this may screw with your google pagerank. Stay away!

Only one star because it broke previous behavior
By , for WP 4.0

I'm sorry for that but it's a really bad practice to break old behavior. I'm talking about the Gallery feature completely modified overnight.

NOT HAPPY
By ,

terrible map, not compatible with SSL pages

NO SUPPORT FROM DEVELOPER
By , for WP 4.0

This is a great set of shortcodes. Unfortunately there is no support on this forum from the developer. The latest update uses the [EXPAND] tag which conflicts with the WordPress Collapse-O-matic plugin. Even when explaining this you are ignored. This would suggest a very aggressive stance towards other developer's plugins, which goes against everything that WordPress development stands for. Avoid.

Not worth waiting
By , for WP 3.9.2

Waiting for months just to start to use it on live websites, but it wont come as i see it. As other said, non existent support, breaking after updates, developer is slow to admit he maid mistakes in coding, etc...

Shame, the only one i know that can give preview of styled shortcode in modal box. And have more shortcodes than any other plugin.
