Avoid this plugin. Many errors: PHP Notices & Incorrectly Enqueued Scripts
By , for WP 4.2.3

Users have been reporting the same errors for over two years, and they still have yet to be fixed. That is not a good sign for a plugin.

I wanted to check out this plugin because it seemed to have some potential.

Unfortunately, is is clear that the author has made no effort to properly debug the plugin, or follow WordPress coding standards.

See my support thread for details on the code errors.

We run WP_DEBUG on all our test sites 24/7. We have to because need to run our code, and our plugin code through rigorous tests and all kinds of situations.

As soon as we fired this up, it started popping off errors....35kb worth of errors in 2 minutes, which would be over 20MB of errors per day. All of these would have been easily catchable if the author had even turned on WP_DEBUG.

I posted a support request with no response from the plugin author.

Unfortunately all the people giving this plugin good ratings don't know about all the errors happening beneath the surface of their site. It's important not to let these unseen errors go unfixed as many of the issues we've seen with plugin conflicts and site issues have to do with this kind of thing.

Lately we've been finding more and more plugins from developers that don't seem to be even making an attempt to properly debug their plugins or read up on WordPress coding standards. This is a really bad trend, and plugin authors need to do better.

I can't in good conscience recommend this plugin until the errors are fixed, the quality of coding is improved, and the author starts to do proper debugging before releasing code to the public.

So, unfortunately I have to give this 1 star.
