Worst customer service of any app ever!!!
By , for WP 4.5.3

I've had a issue with incorrect email address being registered for 3 weeks now and cannot access our account. Mark has been completely ineffective in helping us out. I literally have given up on these guys. A simple problem can't be fixed by them.

If you never have a problem with this app you will be okay. The second you need help it's complete deadsville.

Support your product guys. I begged you for help and told you I can't wait any longer. Don't be surprised for the 1 star. YOU brought it on yourself. I'm a customer, treat me accordingly.

Doesn't deserve one star, but that's the lowest rating available

The free plugin is useless.

for excerpts and a thumbnail you need to buy a $300 add-on.

The lack of functionality and prices are hidden way deep within the docs so I wasted an hour fussing with this junk before realizing it doesn't work til you pay the 300 bucks.

Buggy and lame support
By , for WP 4.5

Purchased the plugin with an add-on and everything seemed to be working ok... until it didn't. It suddenly stopped fetching items, saying that my RSS feed wasn't valid when it was (I checked and rechecked).

Contacted support and they said the feed was blocked or something silly like that, which wasn't true. My guess, they just didn't want to look any deeper and acknowledge that their plugin is very buggy.

I deleted it and have been using a different one without any issues. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Very disappointed

Couldn't get any help, hard to use, seems like a hack from another program

Simply not working
By , for WP 4.4.2

I plugged in the code in the template: it did fetch the RSS-feed entries, but cannot display them anywhere in any form. Tired to debug. Deleted.

if you don't have a premium is simple

Thanks,

Do not believe their refund policy
By , for WP 4.4.1

Purchased the Feed to Post and Excerpts/Thumbnail plugin on December 15th 2015. Excellent support at the beginning of purchasing the plug in but could not get them to work. Requested refunds from the first week of January as I was definitely not satisfied after this date support got less and less and no answer to my refund request despite several reminders. A lot of money spent for little gain!!!

I will rate this support 4 stars but product 1 star.

Completely useless if you don't want to pay

WARNING: This plugin has no styling options whatsoever. You need to buy multiple addons if you want anything else than just your feed titles, dates and links. What a waste of time, please tell honestly what you're incapable of doing in the description.

This software is VERY buggy and no refund given.
By , for WP 4.2

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.
