Caused lightbox to fail
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin has been causing my lightbox (image "enlarged" into DIVs) to fail for the past ~year. I finally figured out it was this plugin causing the mischief. Don't know why... but I can't trust it anymore.

ads & trickery
By ,

If it comes with ads, it comes with ads. No problem there. But at least be straightforward about it. Now even one star is one too many.

Hidden advertisements
By , for WP 4.1

Don't want hidden advertisements on a plugin. I'm fine with paying for something that solves a problem, not to get advertisement included without notification.

Links Alplha! No way.
By ,

The shameless introduction of this unwanted feature that can only be removed thru CSS is low class, even for a free tool.

Simply Brings You to their Page
By , for WP 3.9.1

Download simply brings you to their page.

If it's not free then say it upfront instead of letting people download then it would simply bring them to your sales page.

It also messed up with the function of other plug-ins and wouldn't allow the sidebar to show up in some posts.

forced advertizing

you suck

Not for a professional web
By , for WP 3.9.1

If you want to implement this plugin in a website for a client, remember that your users will get unwanted advertising. If this is not a disadvantage for you, then use it.

A lot of broken JS issues
By , for WP 3.9

Specifically with the non removable branding button. If you use this in conjunction with wp-recaptcha then you have to remove the use of MAIL-HIDE from all the posts and pages that the Social Sharing toolkit is on.

Links alpha ruined it.
By , for WP 3.9

Links alpha contains some JS fatal errors which prevent any script in your page from correctly functioning. They are not responsive on removing the branding off the plugin.

Useless, nagging, everyone hates this
By , for WP 3.8.3

Screenshots do not even show the outcome of the plugin. It's a wild guess of what you are going to get with this plugin.

And it's awful. It has a shortcode, but it doesn't work if used with do_shortcode within a theme. There are restrictions to where it will be displayed. If you are manually including a shortcode, it should always be displayed.

It's not even a list of buttons. It's a dropdown. I don't want an unfamiliar share dropdown. Nobody is going to click on that. Give me a list of familiar social icons instead.
