Good but support = 0

Great if it worked I'm sure
By ,

This plugin appears to do exactly what I want, but the setup is a nightmare to say the least.

Creating Twitter and Facebook Apps is painful enough, but it means white label branding so... ok.

But the App refuses to recognize the Facebook connection and Twitters new developer rules require connecting to to a phone number. I'm just not sure it's a viable system anymore. I'll go with another App and deal with a little "posted by" on Facebook. This is just too much hassle.

Cannot customize at time of posting; cannot add Twitter handle
By , for WP 4.1

Still looking for something that does what I want it to do, and this isn't it.

A very basic feature here needs to be, of course, the ability to put a Twitter handle into a post. For example, HootSuite lets you post distinct content to each social network on a per-post basis. Even better, Buffer converts an @ Twitter handle into its full name for the Facebook version. This plug-in, even though it could have, does none of these things.

We should of course be able to have customization fields show up at the time of posting, as currently is the case with Jetpack's Publicize feature. And yet, Publicize only lets you create a single post of text, lacking the ability to customize for Twitter vs. Facebook, etc.

Big problem for anyone who's professional and serious about this stuff; and this plug-in doesn't solve it.

$149 for networked sites? Come on!
By , for WP 3.9.1

I appreciate hard work has been put into covering non-API sites like Google+ and Pinterest and I'm happy to pay for plugins too. Indeed, I was about to dig into my pocket and by the plugin at $49 since Google+ is an important part of my social media portfolio. You sold me the idea that you had to create your own API libraries so I was happy to buy in at $49.

But $149 for the networked version? That is beyond the reach of simple bloggers like me who run two websites off one installation. Neither of my blogs are commercial but for management purposes I opted for the network setup. Being penalised for going this way by charging $149 for a plugin is beyond ridiculous.

Needless to say I shall be looking elsewhere.

Does what it says...
By , for WP 3.9.1

Well, it does what it says - it posts to facebook and twitter. Unfortunately, the UX of the plugin is atrocious; the hover state popovers float behind the lightboxes, and hang off the bottom of the page, making it impossible to read their content. I'd really expect at least a bit better from a plugin with over 1,000,000 downloads. It just screams half-arsed and half finished.

Works but not all the time. Support is non-existent.
By , for WP 3.9

This is a very mixed bag. Their original product feature set (auto-posting new blog posts to various social media sites) is good and it still works well.

Then, after that, they added a feature to it which they announced with great fanfare, and which would have been very, very valuable...if it had worked. The feature was auto-reposting of OLD blog posts.

Unfortunately, the new feature did NOT work reliably and there were many, many requests for help, both in the form of help tickets on the company's site, and also on the support forum on the company's site.

Eventually, the company just quit responding to the help requests. That only made the users even more frustrated. Finally, after many, many weeks of this, the company "updated" the product, and removed the new feature from it.

It's probably still worth buying and using, but don't expect to have any sort of reliable support if you run into problems. That's why I gave it only a two-star rating, because their support was just awful during the ordeal of the new feature.

Is human coded?

Is a work to acknowledge, but please write clear code for developers!

Basically good, but with annoying bug and miserable support
By , for WP 3.8.1

The plugin works the way it should and the configuration is very versatile and powerful. I would use it in all my other projects, if ...
... there wasn't a big and very annoying probem: The repost function of older posts creates lots of duplicates in a short time (yes, my WP Cron is ok. I had to delete hundreds of duplicate posts from all my Facebook groups manually to prevent the admins to kill me. That's not acceptable. Considering that the plugin works on all other tasks pretty well would have resultet in a vote of three stars. But since the pro-version is about 50$ I expect more help from the developer support than just a f... link to their FAQs and then ignoring me. This drops the vote to two stars. My recommendation: get the free plugin, skip the pro version.

Plugin seems great if support would answer so I can get it to work
By , for WP 3.8.1

I love the idea of this plugin. However, I'm still trying to get it to work with Facebook at this time. I am having several issues that I have specifically outlined in a support request. I contacted support 22 February 2014, and have sent a few more contacts with latest testing results. Today is 5 March 2014 and still no reply. Not even, "We received your ticket and we're looking into it." I must say that is extremely disappointing.

I realize this is a free plugin, and therefore support may not be immediate. However, I think weeks going by with no response at all is unacceptable. I was considering buying the Premium version, although now I'm forced to try to find another plugin since this one is buggy for some reason and I'm getting no help.

I'm running this on client accounts, not a silly personal blog, so this needs to work and I need to get help resolving specific issues in a timely manner when it doesn't.

Anyone know of any Nextscript alternatives that work well from personal experience having installed and used with Facebook? I'm open to recommendations. Thank you.
