Few Pro features work, hardly
By ,

I have the latest version of WordPress, and I paid for the Pro version of this plugin, probably the worst plugin I have purchased in the last 18 months.

Most features in the Pro version do not work. The moving background template doesn't work, so leaves you with the original template. The new features in that template do not work again, like google analytics, I had to hire someone to fiddle wit the code to make it work as it adds characters.

The mobile version looks awful, the buttons's positions are fixed and they fall on top of texts, resulting in distortion,

and the list goes on...

Sends "301 PERMANENTLY MOVED" header
By ,

This plugin will kill any SEO you have, because it sends a 301 PERMANENTLY MOVED header instead of a 503 Temporarily Unavailable header! DO NOT USE UNLESS YOU WANT TO RUIN YOUR SEO!

Does not work with all themes
By , for WP 4.1.1

Works good with Twenty fourteen but not with Twenty Twelve and others.

Can't access site once installed
By ,

Blocks Admin access on site, meaning you can't actually work on your site once it's installed and have to access the plugin on ftp to delete it. Worst plugin I have ever used.

Broken -

Sorry - Worked yesterday. There was just an update.
Perhaps you should test somewhere besides on your local.


Doesn't work.
By , for WP 3.9

Doesn't work. In addition, modifying settings creates a "no permission" error, forcing one to go the "GO PRO" route which then costs $10.
