Removing features - not cool
By , for WP 4.2.4

I won't lie, I'm still a pretty big fan of this plugin. However, the way the removed features are basically hidden from a recent big update is pretty deceptive. My timing is apparently bad for doing some house cleaning on my site, and the 301 redirect tool that I always saw would have come in really handy. I get it--lots of people must use it so it's probably a good way to get users to upgrade to premium, and everyone on the free version is hooked so it won't drive most people away. Still, just TELL US. Candidly. So I don't have to waste one of many hours I will likely spend working on this project just trying to figure out where the dang field went. The premium version isn't in my budget, and I feel for those in the same boat. I will keep using the plugin, but I raved about it to everyone who I met with a website before, and that will stop.

Update broke our entire admin area
By , for WP 4.2.3

Updating your plugin, broke the entire admin area. Had to delete the plugin folder and use our old version to get back up and running. Looks like I'm not the only one. Other people are having the same issue. Plugin always worked well before, but now your updates are taking sites down and you're removing features. No bueno. We'll just stay on the version we are on.

I am all for supporting developers but it is not cool to take away features that were once available for free. The 301 redirect is gone and I will now move onto a new SEO plugin. Bubye...

Useful plugin. No significant problems with it. I'll change my review if my feelings about this plugin change, presuming I can.

Bring back 301
By , for WP 4.2.3

After reading the change log again (after updating) I noticed you'd be removing the 301 redirect. Not cool.
I mean when we get an update a day for a few days we all lose track of these changes.
Just saying you should give us that feature back rather than tempting us with a full dinner but then giving us just the soup and giving our food to the premium users at the next table.
