Nice idea but poor implementation
By , for WP 4.2.2

It is impossible to save anything on the user provide with Starbox Pro installed.
Waste of money for something that does not work properly.
Tried contacting support but no response and I suppose very little chance of a refund.

Broke WP plugin Policy
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is against WP plugin directory rules. Because of this I give you 1 star delete the plugin and report you..! Sorry but open source is open source...! you can have upgraded features but I honestly think WP plugin directory is becoming overwhelmed with people taking advatage of it.

You can buy Starbox without links and subscription from: http://starbox.squirrly.co/product/starbox-the-author-box-for-humans/ or Go to your use profile just switch off "Powered By Starbox" (under the social icons). It has a global effect for all the authors.


what happened? Hiding custom post types
By , for WP 3.9

the checkbox to hide custom post types is always checked - I can uncheck it but can't save it, it reverts back again.

All boxes suddenly started showing " Powered by Starbox"
By , for WP 3.8.1

I am not sure plugins can do that... It should be optional and it should not happen without the blog owner enabling it?

Bait and Switch
By , for WP 3.7.1

Fantastic plug-in - but they don't tell you until after you have it installed that the only way you can use the social network icons is to sign the email of each individual user account in your install up for their mailing list to activate access to the icons. This is beyond slimey!

I have over 90 user accounts on my WP install and NO WAY will I be requiring all of those contributors - some of whom aren't even with the publication any longer - to sign up to be on a mailing list they aren't interested in so that we can have a feature on our website for them. Other plug-ins offer the same functionality without the sneaky strong arm. UNINSTALL.
