This used to be an awesome plugin - one that I installed on every website I created and I told everyone about it. After the major revision to WP Edit, I don't even use it anymore. All of the features I used are only available on the PRO version, which is way too expensive for me (developer license and yearly updates) considering all of the free alternatives out there. No biggie - I found a suitable free alternative.

'visual' mode has no buttons, no content

Not compatible with WP 4.0
By , for WP 4.0

I tried using this plugin on a dozen sites only to find out it was causing problems during creation and editing of posts. It seems that when WordPress attempted to save a draft of my work, the plugin caused the post to hang in the backup mode, preventing any attempts to save a draft or publish the content, thereby losing all work up to the point that WordPress started the backup process.

I attempted to deactivate plugins one at a time until I drilled down to WP Edit, which was at the bottom of the list of plugins. Once deactivated the problem went away.

It is a helpful plugin, but unusable by me until this problem gets fixed.

Crashed existing WYSIWYG editor
By , for WP 4.0

My content in Visual tab completely disappeared after installing WP Edit and using it for a short time.
After removing plugin (as it was instructed in its settings) the problem still remained.
I won't give it a next try.

Time wasting

An editor with a pro option, but whatever I tried it.
Just to see that even underlined text is only available in the pro version. Awesome!

Too Many Paid Options
By , for WP 3.9.2

I hate downloading plugins only to discover everything I need is a paid option.
TinyMCE does everything for free.

One day my plug-in was completely broken with no warning. I eventually figured out (after about a week) you created a whole new plug-in in order to strip this plug-in of any features that gave it any value. In fact, all of the useful features such as Code Magic have been completely removed from free version. Even worse the pricing scheme for the pro version is completely convoluted. what is a "network" install anyway? lol I have I installed this plug-in on a few hundred customer websites so I can use Code Magic to fix broken pages caused by the quirky nature of the WordPress editor. I even helped you find a few bugs. Remember the Code Magic session_start(); bug? Now I have to pay $279.00? Thank you for making my favorite plug-in completely useless.

Limited functionality
By , for WP 3.9.1

I could be wrong, but after installing the free version I noticed that it offered minimum features. In fact, anything I tried to enable required that I purchased the premium version.

It 's over your reputation
By , for WP 3.9.1

This operation is canceled your reputation.
You forced all developers like me to change the editor from one day to another.
They should put your name on the black list of plugin developers.
This is not the way to behave.

Minimally Useful Unless You Buy Pro
By , for WP 3.9

I'm all for developers making money from their work -- it's how I make my living. But promoting a plugin that has essentially zero functionality unless you pay for the premium version seems not quite right. Either sell it outright or offer legit free/paid versions. As it stands you're essentially just installing an advertisement to purchase the pro version.
