Have NEVER experienced such a poor plugin product

Here is my experience:

The product (revive old posts wordpress plugin) did not work as described. The installation documentation on the website is incomplete, and therefore I was unable to correctly complete an install of the product. Also the license provided was invalid. And activation of the plugin repeatedly resulted in activation followed by automatic deactivation. Additional documentation about Facebook app installation was incorrect with regard to how to setup a FB account on/in ROP. The functionality displayed in the video did not exist on either the ROP website or my own website after plugin activation. The “support desk” was a link to a page of FAQs none of which were relevant to my concern. I am a near-expert in WordPress concerns, and after four hours of frustration concerning simply installing the plugin, I am requesting a refund.

Excellent plugin!

The instructions and guide to setting up the apps are just amazing. The steps worked perfectly and I could set up everything in just 15 minutes. Awesome plugin!

Don’t buy this plugin !!!!

I use for a long time the free one.

I decided to buy the license, and it’s absolutely horrible, very hard to find where to put the license key in the plugin, hard to understand how to activate it. And I just follow the video explanation to connect to linkedin and Bingo ! nothing works !

I’m waiting for an answer of the support……. waiting…..
