Great plugin, annoying nag screen

Excellent plugin, one star deducted for really annoying ‘donate’ notice that forces its way onto various screens in the dashboard even when you’re looking at something that has nothing to do with this plugin. Would have considered donating if not for this.

Redirect after activation

Please, remove the redirect to contact form 7 after activating the plugin!!!!! It’s horrible! And causes errors when using TGM.

Annoying notices, but otherwise good plugin

the plugin works as it should, but with annoying donate to the author notices every time a new page loads. Finally figured out how to disable them.
In the activate.php file hide everything after line 59 where it says “Shows the update notice” and all that goes away.
Seriously would consider donating if the darn notifications weren’t so obnoxious. Do you really have to make them large enough to fill half the browser?

Annoying Adds To Donate

Man . You really got to rethink your Donation Tabs . It shows up automatically on back end every time a new page is loaded and its really frustrating .

I understand that you want to get paid for the work that you have done but this way you are just annoying its users . Even though i might think to donate . After seeing those adds on every page . I changed my mind in less then 5 min.


Renzo is the man! First class customer service, and phenomenally built plugins!

Nice plugin & great support!

This is a pretty good plugin and the support from the developer is just awesome. I mailed him about the issue, though he was about to leave but he still fixed the issue within few minutes for me. When it comes to support this plugin is much better than most of the premium plugins! You can bet on that.

Thanks a lot for the plugin and support. I hope you continue to do such a great job! 🙂
