horrible do not download
By ,

word press said they had an update and i had other updates as well so i updated all...now come to find out is says on a little side note "wordpress 4.5 beta 2 is now available this software is still in development, so we don’t recommend you run it on a production site. consider setting up a test site just to play with the new version. " what in the world my site takes 5 minutes to load or doesn't even load at all and i can't even add a post! i can't do anything as a administrator because it takes 10 minutes for the page to load or it doesn't load at all and says "error establishing a database"

NO TURNING BACK
By ,

The plugin does what it promises. But it seems using this plugin is a one way thing. Returning back to using only stable releases can be a big hassle. Disabling & uninstalling the plugin might or might not work for you.

It's almost criminal that such a plugin is endorsed by the official WordPress pages.

As all the warnings say, make sure you have good backups of everything before using, and use only at your own risk.

Cannot Return to Stable Releases....
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have posted this on two different support forums, including the one for this plugin, but nobody has a response, and the author clearly isn't showing the courtesy of dealing with user problems.

So I ran the latest version of this plugin for the 4.2 beta. After release, as I did in previous beta cycles, I deactivated it and attempted to upgrade to the release version. No dice. Even manually installing the 4.2.x files leaves me in 4.3 alpha mode.

Any solutions? Anyone?

Does not do what it says

This plugin is useless. I am trying to install 4.2 beta and this piece o stuff just reinstalls 4.1.1 and announces what a good job it did. What a crock.

skips official release
By , for WP 3.4.2

skipped the official release at the end of the beta cycle, and upgraded straight to the 3.6 alpha version.
If you use this plugin be very careful not to miss a release announcement!

I didn't want an alpha release tester plugin, this doesn't warn that it is, and it seems there's no support when it does something it shouldn't.

I'd give it zero stars if I could.

plugin doesn't do what it says it does

fail, plugin keeps stuck on 3.4.3 beta 1, not a chance to get it to update to 3.5
