I ended up switching to a different plugin due to this one being too buggy for me to use. The one issue that drove me away for good was a bug in which the featured image displays in the post regardless of the plugin settings. It was pretty blatant, so I spent quite a bit of time trying to configure it instead of assuming it was a bug. A bug like this one will get caught with a little bit of testing.
After explaining to them that I have since moved on to a different plugin due to their bug, they were unwilling to provide a refund. In their opinion, since they fixed that bug in the next release, I am required to wait for them to have fixed it. Since it was fixed in their next version, they will not provide a refund. The end.
IMHO, they should focus less on how to avoid providing refunds especially when their plugin does not work properly. Instead, they should consider the following from the customer's perspective:
a) Customers waste a lot of time in uncovering bugs in the first place, especially blatant ones where they have to wonder "That can't possibly be a bug. They would have caught that issue.", "It must be something I am doing wrong or a setting I am not understanding". Finally, realizing that this issue was a bug really sucked up a lot of my time. Being that I wanted to finish it over the weekend, I kept persisting with various combinations
b) Customers that switch to a different plugin have just wasted the time learning all of the settings and how to configure your complex plugin.
c) If a customer is NO LONGER USING YOUR PLUGIN solely because your plugin is buggy, give them a refund, especially when it is a bug you have confirmed. Don't expect that they should hang tight until you get around to fixing it as if they are part of your dev or QA team.
I do not mind paying for a plugin if it works and does what it claims. I do not even mind putting in time to learn it, but I hate having my time wasted because the developer wants to treat me like a member of the QA team.
It's all about the bait and switch.
[removed by moderator] still is the best such tool out there.
The review is for the Feed to Post plugin which comes at the price of $77.00 USD for the first year and at $53.90 USD for subsequent years.
The plugin should be a beta with so many bugs:
it brings in duplicates.
it brings in unformatted posts.
it stops bringing in the featured images at free will.
it slows down the website considerably even with 5 feeds to fetch.
no refund given within the 14 days period.(not even after not fixing the bugs)
the support time slows down gradually after the first week from purchase.
unfortunately all this is true!
A waste of money! Beware of their tricks with the refund!
- Buggy Software (Paid for the full version)
- A lot of time spent with support fixing
- Reoccurring problems
- No refund outside 14 day window even if you have spend a ton of time with support
- No refunds unless access to your site is granted so they can keep testing.
Even if you do spend the $229 its a con, no refunds for a poor product and then when they get bored your communications will be ignored by support when THEY deem it.
DONT waste your money. Unless you want to pay them to be a testing engineer for them for FREE.
I wasted 20 minutes of my precious time evaluation this ripoff item. Unless you are willing to pay a lot of extra bucks just to show thumbnails or feed to post, forget it. Save your time and save your MONEY.
importing function is not part of the free plugin, it costs $$$
As a free plugin this offers nothing.
Just a widget with latest rss feeds, which you can get all over internet and put just code in text widget without installing any plugin.
Also, I dislike video tutorials and speech where they instead of "select" say "seljekt".
Makes me itchy.
This plugin does not work as advertised. Many of the features are completely non-functional. They do respond to my emails, but they never fix anything.
Don't waste your time and money, there are other plugins that do this that work as well or better. FeedWordPress is the best one I have used.
Superb work! But unfortunately I had to uninstall it, since I couldn't spend $229 to make it fully functional.
