Nice intro for new WPs, but annoying bug in recent version
By , for WP 4.1.1

Use this plugin across my sites as a helpful stepping stone for those who are not used to WordPress.

However, with the most recent update (2.2.0) there is a bug in the version #'s so it appears to always need an update. If that could be tuned, that'd be nice.

Most Excellent!

Don't listen to the negativity. Sidekick is incredible. It will help you and your clients immensely. Support is terrific as well.

Give it a try and you'll find out for yourself.

Everybody makes missteps now and then. I, for one, am not going to let that get in the way of supporting a superb company. Ben Fox and the crew have done a magnificent job of putting together a true gem of an automatic support system.

Sidekick Pro is a game changer. Believe that.

P.S. -Make sure you upgrade. You'll thank me later. ;)

How can this plugin not have a higher rating. It runs flawlessly and provides AMAZING support for my users. It saves me SO much time and is so easy to use. So what if it cost a little bit to have access to the other tutorials. They give you enough free tutorials that allows this plugin to be very useful without the subscription service. They have done a good job at balancing the free tutorials with the paid tutorials and I appreciate that.

Can't wait to see where this plugin ends up in a few years.


This plugin was installed/activated by MediaTemple without my permission

This plugin was installed/activated by Media Temple without my permission. I already deleted it and I will move to another web hosting company. Media Temple have installed it without my acceptance or knowledge. This plugin is very bad.

LOVE Sidekick

Personally, as a more advanced user of WordPress, I don't exactly need all the materials in this plugin, but the content is great! I know that I would have benefited from this plugin when I first started with WordPress.

Even in light of the recent controversy, this is a great plugin and anyone looking to learn more about WordPress should use it. I mean, where else can you get such interactive learning?

I don't think auto-activating this plugin on existing GoDaddy/MediaTemple sites was the right thing to do, and there were definitely mistakes made, but let's take a step back.

Have you heard ANYONE say "This plugin was installed and it broke my site!" Nope. I think people are overreacting. I'm glad that plugins like SideKick exists and I hope they continue to grow and succeed.

Great plugin, awesome service

Accurate, good looking and fast.

Unauthorised spam

This was installed without my acceptance or knowledge, and I lost hours of work because of it.

Unauthorised spam
By , for WP 4.1

Logged into my WP account today to find this had been 'magically' installed. I immediately deactivated it, haven't used it and don't intend to.

Why impose your product on someone, whether free or not? I want the choice about what I install to my website to be my own - and I'm already paying for the privilege in any case, as it's a hosted site. Finding Sidekick installed without my knowledge is irritating and dubious - it's a control panel version of spam email.

unauthorised installation of the plugin has caused 8 hours work disappear
By , for WP 4.1

Unauthorised installation of the plugin has caused my 8 hours of work just vanish without any possibilities to restore. It's quite possible that the plugin has been installed via another plugin that I already trusted. Spammy actions.
