FAQ Accordion works well
By , for WP 3.9

This plugin has worked well for what I've used it for. Then again, I've only used the accordion functionality of it for FAQ pages for some of my clients.

Blew up my site; completely unusable
By , for WP 3.8.1

Like other reviewers, this plugin did nothing but blow up my site, most likely because it conflicted with other plugins or the theme (Enfold, which is extremely common). I was not able to access any admin functions, so I tried to delete the shortcode plugin folder via FTP. Still dead. I deleted ALL of my plugins and the plugin folder itself, and reinstalled everything from scratch. Site works again but at half the speed of before.

Avoid this plugin at all costs.

By , for WP 3.8.1

Works well enough, but various menus and interfaces are kind of heavy on the upsell messaging (to the point of spammy). I appreciate and support the plugin development community, but it is a bit much and ultimately went with another solution.

Waste of time
By , for WP 3.7.1

Basically, doesn't do what it claims to do. Hopeless :(

Does not work with Churchope theme
By , for WP 3.6

Plug in causes conflicts with the Churchope theme. Stopping Churchope Shortcodes from working.

Very useful, if you don't need to customize it
By , for WP 3.5.2

Does everything I expected it to. Only problem is it's EXTREMELY difficult to alter through CSS. Very poor choice in naming the divs and id's. Took me hours to figure out how to alter the look of the tabbed menu alone, not to mention the columns.

Typography Not Included
By , for WP 3.5.2

It seems the typography features I was looking for are not available with the free version.

It's ok but severely overloaded
By , for WP 3.5.1

For a simple program that converts shortcodes into text in the backend, I cannot comprehend how it needs to load so many css and javascript files on the frontend!

Massive overkill in a CMS that already has too many external file calls... This one is far too top heavy for me

So far sooOOOoooOOo gooood!

Strongbad would give synved 4 stars I bet, maybe even 5. So far, Synved shortcodes has worked beautifully. I even managed to to get the accordion plugin to fire during a hover event instead of a mouseclick. (more on that here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/get-accordion-to-open-during-hover-event-onmouseover?replies=1#post-4200649 ).


Zero spacing between pictures and text uneditable
By , for WP 3.5.1

Not able to edit the zero space between columns, resulting in no pixel separation between text and images when viewed in certain browsers.
When asking for support help, received a brush off answer of "go learn CSS" - If I wanted to learn CSS I wouldnt beusing plugins, now would I?
