Missing a lot of basic features
By ,

insists on appearing in every user account, not just, you know, contributors, authors, and admins. Subscribers DON'T NEED AN AUTHOR BOX.

Also there ought to be a way to manually or automatically crop the photo someone uploads, or at least have overflow hidden instead of stretching the circle meant to contain the picture into an ugly "look, the website isn't doing what it should" oval.

There's more but you get the point. Basic usability has been overlooked.

Social Links Removed Without Warning
By , for WP 4.1

Starbox worked great, looked great, and then they decided to remove the social links besides Facebook and Twitter unless you pay $30. No one likes having standard features taken away without notice and then forced to pay what I consider a nice chunk of change for something so basic. I understand you need to monetize your business, but this is upsetting to your customers and not the way to go about it.

Support is dead. Affects the Body CSS.
By , for WP 4.0

Whenever activated, this plugin skews the CSS of my footer. The support also seems dead for a few months now, looking at the vast amount of unanswered questions on the support tab.

Has potential but no support
By , for WP 3.9

The plugin has potential but after several support request there has not been any response. When they provide support and develop the plugin more I will try again.

Very cool plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

It's really good plugin, but my main concern is that I can't upload my own photo nor use my gravatar picture, I don't know if I have to link the accounts, but this is just me. I can't tell all the authors to create a gravatar account (which is not working with the plugin either).

:(
