The free version of Tubepress is completely unusable with errors. (RIP)
Youtube Channel Gallery is a great alternative
I can't even order the three thumbnails that I've been reduced to with the update.
All sort of errors encountered with the free version of Tubepress making it completely unusable - scared to buy the pro version.
I did however get it to marginally work by downgrading to 4_1_5 off their site. Will move the client off this as soon as time permits.
It's guys like these that give open-source a bad name. Luckily lots of other folks have figured out how to use YouTube's API.
Google updated the API. This plugin author did not. Now it doesn't work.
This developer gave no warning to users about forcing payment for their previously free plugin upon latest update. I wasted nearly two days trying to figure out why their plugin no longer worked. After digging endlessly through their user forum I found a partial fix, but only three video thumbnails showed up for each playlist.
More hours were spent looking for direction on how to make the plugin include all the videos in my playlist -- finally, buried in a long post in their forum, the developer states that unless you purchase the Pro version you are limited to three videos.
I always support shareware, plugin and theme developers. However, this was a sleazy trick by Tubepress to force loyal users into buying a previously free plugin.
I suggest that this developer and his plugin be permanently banned from the WordPress plugin repository. Shame on him.
if you already "upgraded" to the new version just delete the tubepress folder from your "plugins" folder and copy an older backup (if you have one).
If you are still using an older version of the plugin that gives you more than 3 videos and you don't want to pay for more than 3 videos, DO NOT UPDATE.
The updated free (crippled) version now limits you to 3 videos
This is all it says before you get the crippled version - There is a new version of TubePress available. View version 3.1.7 details or update now.
Thanks for the warning guys.
...and nobody cares about.
No updates all these days.
Functionality and design are supreme. Code is buggy leaving implementation difficult. Searching for alternatives.
