Too costly for multiple site installs

Unusable plugin

Hello,

The free version of Tubepress is completely unusable with errors. (RIP)

Youtube Channel Gallery is a great alternative

Stinks.

I can't even order the three thumbnails that I've been reduced to with the update.

Tubepress July 2015

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.

Suddenly only shows 3 thumbnails unless you pay

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.

Not cool.

Dishonest....

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.

community.tubepress.com

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.

carefull!!! dont upgrde !

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).
