Too many to summarize

The latest version forces you to accept their new terms. The new terms are inaccessible because the developer's website SSL certificate was revoked. This was a great plugin for years. It now wants blind approval to spy on everything you do. Not interested. Run, don't walk, away from this plugin. I've already removed it from all my sites.

Has what I needed and works perfectly. Tried some others but none as good as Simple Share Button Adder IMHO

Slowing down site for 1+ sec and adds 20+ requests
By , for WP 4.5.3

I just realised how much this plugin started to slow down my sites. I think previous versions was fast and OK but the lastest one is just no acceptable.
I ran test on my testing site and from 14 requests and 543ms jumped after activation of this plugin to 42 requests and 1.83 sec!!!! Man, you must be joking!
I think I will return with previous version. Thank you for giving me more work!

Another plugin that doesn't work as advertised
By , for WP 4.5.2

Installed configured social sites, placement and content elements of where to appear. Clicked save and nothing appears anywhere on the portfolio pages I use. Looked through docs and didn't find any shortcode references so I uninstalled it. Probably is designed to work with regular post format only, however, they claim on their WP.org page; "A simple plugin that enables you to add share buttons to all of your posts and/or pages."

I wish these plugin vendors would get their act together and stop putting out beta products. I can only name a couple plugin authors who put out tested and reliable products and this isn't one of them. A waste of 45 minutes of my time.

Note: I forgot to change my star rating for this to 0 and the editor page doesn't allow for me to go back and change it. Another example of garbage programming. Hey WordPress.org! Did it ever occur to you that someone may want to change the star rating for a variety of reasons.

Much faster!

Switched from another plugin and the number of HTTP requests dropped by approximately 20...boom!
