No integration with menu or editor. Little to no documentation. Old school plugin left over from the early days of WP.

Great Plugin!

This is a great plugin that deserves 5 stars.

I am thinking about upgrading to the pro version, but gotta look into what more it offers than the free version.

Saves me a lot of time trying to figure out how to do a border in css or html. I am happy with this plugin!

I have seen some negative comments here from some haters ... Well i got curious and i have downloaded the archive, than I've scanned it on my pc with AVG, after that I've scanned online in like four antivirus scanning websites... THIS PLUGIN IS 100% CLEAN ! I am using this plugin by years and years and i can tell that is the best that someone can get ! Those who says that the plugin is containing virus or any kind of stuff like that, are developers as well here on WordPress and such a haters and jealous... I GIVE FIVE STARS TO THIS PLUGIN RIGHT NOW !!! GOOD JOB ON IT GUYS, KEEP IT UP !! Thank y'all for all the work y'all did on this plugin and I appreciate it A LOT !!

Infected with malware
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin worked great for years, but recently it looks like it's been hacked. It now downloads lib/404.php which when decrypted is a shell script which is a backdoor to your site. Highly avoid this plugin unless you want your site used for spam.

My site was exploited by this plugin
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin contained a file which installed malware on my server and sent spam emails out to thousands of my clients. I do not recommend this plug-in. (although it worked pretty well when it wasn't screwing me over!)


Virus! Beware

Reported as v5.0.86

The 404.php file in the 'lib' subdirectory is being flagged as containing malware by maldet. Consider carefully if you really need this plugin.

Virus alert!

My Webhoster just informed me, that they have found a virus in /wp-content/plugins/wp-special-textboxes/lib/404.php. Therefore i cant recommend this plugin anymore, sorry!
