Fancy problem but good plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

Fancy does not work in browsers like IE8. Haven't tested other older browsers that may still be in use. Overall a good plugin though. I just switched to minimal theme to make sure it displays correctly.

Getting it on many blog.

Nice and beautiful. Seeing it often.

When compatible with the theme, works like a champ!

Definitely my preferred author citation tool. Occasionally it doesn't work with a particular them, but you can hardly fault the author for that.

AWESOME right out of the box!
By , for WP 3.8.2

Works fabulously, right out of the box - at least once I figured out how to get it to take my info from my profile! Can think of a few things I'd like to see added, but for now, VERY COOL!!!!

Good 1 but Cant Hide "Powered by Starbox"

Minimal Effort, Great Result
By , for WP 3.8.1

I just installed this plugin and have it set up and working after only a few minutes. I am impressed with the ease of use and how well it's implemented on the site. It's almost perfect. I would like for there to be a setting for which users/groups have Starbox settings on their profiles, as it's not really necessary for groups like subscribers.

  • As others have stated, the need to subscribe to a newsletter to unlock the social icons is somewhat offputting, but I have mailboxes set up for that; though, if I see an influx of unsolicited mail, I might reconsider.

Very good plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

I tried few plugins and this one is the best one so far.

Yes, there's a little "forced signup" to get the social features but it's worth it. Agree that it's different if you have 100 people there.

I'm using it on our startup blog ([ link deleted, please don't post links in reviews ] and everyone in the team was impressed how fast and simple it was to setup our profiles.

Suggestion: I love the author box on the [ link deleted, please don't post links in reviews ], it would be a good inspiration for a new theme.


very nice

Like the looks and ease of use. Feel that the social media linking part has a touch of Bait and switch in it, because to use it you have to join their mailing list. Yet, I did sign up and if I get too much spam I will alter my review to probably 2 stars. But we will see. maybe they will respect the inbox and just send plugin news.
