Insert or Embed Articulate Content into WordPress Trial

Upon clicking this toolbar icon, you will have the ability to upload your published Articulate content as a ZIP file.

Lightbox and other options like opening the content in a new window are included in the premium version.

Thanks for the great service. You won’t regret it. This plugin impressed me on multiple levels. I STRONGLY recommend this plugin to EVERYONE interested in running a successful online business!

You are downloading a trial version – full version is $100!!!

Yep, I downloaded this plugin and it works as advertised. But what you didn’t know was this is a trial version and you get 3 downloads. Then you have to pay $100 for the premium version. $100!!!??? I’ve never heard of a plugin charging that much – I guess that’s why he calls himself a freak. I’m finding another plugin and refuse to pay $100 bucks for a plugin, plain and simple.

Waste of time

Having spent quite a bit of time fiddling around getting this to work, trying to get it to look right, I was more than a little p*****d off to discover that it can only be used to upload 3 quizmaker files before requiring you to stop, or buy a premium version.

An absolute waste of time. I have many premium plugins, which I bought after deciding that the standard version was worth bothering with and to get a few extra features. Not this one; I consider it dishonest that this pathetic 3-files-only limitation is not written in big bold letters on the plugin page so that people know in advance.

I don’t know or care if the paid-for version works or not. All I know is that I wasted my time buggering about with this, trying to work out why the output wasn’t responsive and required endless scrolling on mobile screens and failing to find any useful help anywhere. Nothing. Even the site where they send you to pay $100 for something that isn’t restricted has no useful information.

Given that the free version doesn’t appear to work properly when viewed with a mobile browser, I’d say you’d need to have more money or faith than sense to risk buying it.
