My site is down because of this plugin
By ,

I just registered right now to review this plugin. Bought the Plus version, site speed goes from 50 to 18. Aaaaand, worst of all, my site now is down.

Asked for a refund, let's see what happens.

Stay away from this one.

PHP Errors

impossible to set the place you want
impossible to set the padding between items

A complete waste of time

Plugin doesn't work
By , for WP 4.2.3

It's a great plugin in theory, but when all of my counters are reset to 0 and the only way to fix it is by upgrading to the paid version, that's not okay with me.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 4.2.2

I just see the tabs, nothing else. I can't edit/do anything with this plugin. What might cause the problem? A lot of people have good comments about this plugin yet it doesn't work for me.

new interface doesn't work
By ,

By all accounts, this is a great little plugin, but I found the new interface that comes with the 6.0.1 version to be maddeningly useless. Amongst other things, the drag and drop editor for the buttons just showed a row of coloured squares rather than the various site icons and once an icon was dragged into the 'shown' area there was no way to drag it out again, even by deleting and reinstalling the plugin. All the support is for the old interface so there was nowhere to turn to sort these very basic problems :-(

Too far from a commercial product
By , for WP 4.2.1

I purchased a Pro version in order to get proper support which I've never gotten.
It took some time to make it working in the first place, and it stopped working after an update.
Response time is huge (takes days).

Conclusion: waste of money.

Bad things happening after installing - just FYI!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Page load times increased by 300-500%…10 seconds to 40-65 seconds.

My bounce rate went from 37% to 94% and all the 100% bounces were acquired by "simple share button" referrals.

So, yes, if you want more traffic to come to your site - useless traffic that totally screws up your stats and analytics and rankings and SEO -then this is the plugin for you.

I put up a test site, installed NOTHING except the default 2015 theme - and this plugin…the domain has never been active, no sitemaps were submitted, I did nothing at all.

253 visits in that first week - 100% bounce rate of course - and looking at the geo data - not one from my own country (the US).

This plugin was, to me, like installing malware on my site! LOL

No working support
By , for WP 4.1.1

As I see they don't care this free support threads.
I look for another social share solution instead.

Dashed hopes
By , for WP 4.1.1

I had high hopes for this plugin but after installing page load times went to over 60 seconds. Yes, that's right, 60 seconds. I deactivated the plugin and page loads went back to normal and reactivated and went to a crawl.
