Much nicer to Ask not Demand
By , for WP 3.9.1

As a fellow plugin developer, I found it somewhat disturbing that you forced me to either sign up or leave a review for your product. Especially since the latest version has been riddled with new bugs.

I never leave a 1 star, but when you irritate me, while I'm trying to work, you will get what I have to give.


Blank Screen after installing
By ,

Only can be resolved by deleting the plugin :(

By , for WP 3.9

forces you to write a review before you an save. Not cool. Im getting rid of it. Too annoying

Overly Complicated, Hidden Costs, crashed 3 pages
By , for WP 3.9.1

This could be much simpler. I'm still troubleshooting my crashed site. I also didn't expect to pay money when I purchase this plugin, but I did.

Slowed my site down.

Crashed website twice
By , for WP 3.9

I could not make this plugin work. In the end it crashed my website twice - I have no idea why - and I deleted it.

Also I found the dashboard and supporting notes pretty complicated - almost requires an online course just to figure out how to use it. However if you are a WordPress buff, you can probably breeze through this!

Okay... But...
By , for WP 3.8.3

First of all the on-going pop-up is ultra annoying when I'm trying to figure out why my site doesn't show up in PageSpeed Insights since I activated parts of this plugin...

Can't you put an option on your popup to allow me to not see it for awhile . It's come up two dozen times this morning, and I'm fed up.

Beware scam and thieves
By , for WP 3.9

Don't pay any services as they just take money and no news, we are now many to wait from more than one month and no news or just an email with fake promise (one week before)...

I personally lost 250 $ us, thanks to http://wordpress.org to promote this plugin without any check about coder or/and company...

I discover this plugin through this website and it is a shame than it still allow to advertise here because it is a scam

For proof, after my comment, you will see appear 3 or 5 new quick fake comments with 5 stars...Really uggly scam

A shame for wordpress world, a shame for this website and a shame for other honest coders...
