Could be good, but BAD support ruins it!
By ,

I have to agree with girlswithguns, who commented on the poor support for this plugin.

I managed to get the plugin working on an earlier version of WP, but with the release of WP 4, the Twitter count went away (when floating on the left of the page). Comments to the developer have brought no changes. We are now up to WP 4.4.1 and still no fix. I have since installed another social plugin that does not display the counts at all. Better to have no counts, than to have a blank space where the count should be.

There are some bugs reported when logging is enabled, but they don't seem to cause any problems. It's just shows that the shabby support is matched by shabby development.

It worked as advertised for a while. But it is as if the developer just put it out for download and then forgot about it. This could have been a good plugin, too. Bummer…

Very bad plugin full of bugs
By , for WP 3.9.2

It is unbelievable that someone can publish a plugin with such low code quality and with so many bugs. From user's perspective it may seem to work but just enable debugging in your wordpress and I guaranty you will get a full log of errors from this plugin. Some examples are:

  • In function kc_social_share it starts with:
    global $posts;
    and there is no global variable $posts, there is only global variable $post which it then uses in the following code where its value is undefined
  • In function get_image_in_post_content it uses preg_match to find image in a post and without checking if anything was found it uses $matches[1][0]
  • In function get_image_from_post_thumbnail it does something like:
    if (someCondition) {
      $image = $something;
    }
    return $image[0];

    How can it return first index from something that might not have been initialized?

  • In function function get_image_from_attachments it uses does something like:
    $children = get_children(...);
    $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( $children[0], 'thumbnail');

    But since get_children is returning associative array of (postID => data) you can't use $children[0] on the next line.

Could be good
By , for WP 4.0

Was not working nicely for me: the like button was not enough big and was not fitting all the text ("j'aime" in french) neither the like count... I tried to modify pixel size in admin but it has no effect.
May-be in a next update, it will work good

Developer ignores bug reports
By , for WP 3.8.2

Initially, this plugin looked good, but when I activated the Pinterest module, an error message started appearing. I reported this (very politely!) through the developer's page, but my comment there was simply deleted without response. Cannot support a plugin with such a cavalier approach to its users.

If Facebook Gets Fixed Its Perfect!
By , for WP 3.8

im actually going to leave this plugin active for a week or 2 hoping to see an update that fixes the facebook like not showing up or giving the option to leave a comment before posting a like.

there is an open support thread with myself and another guy confirming the problem.

not usable
By ,

puts style rules in a style attribute, so you can't overrule it. not usable.
