Why aren't some developers clearer in their description of their product or service? Because if you knew the true details it could result in a decrease in sales. After running a marketing company for more than 16 years, you learn all the tricks. Some ethical and others not so ethical. I've noticed over the years that "Truth" in advertising is lacking in most everything you buy these days and this plugin is no exception. I would like to give this plugin 5 stars because it does exactly what it says its going to do. I was so impressed by its functionality that I purchased the Pro Version for Unlimited sites. What a deal... I said to myself... I'll use this on all my sites in the future. So a year has past and all of a sudden I get an email telling me my Pro License for Unlimited websites has been cancelled. You see... in their advertisements it says... "$99 .20/ year 1 Year of supports and updates for unlimited websites" But what they mean is after one year you get no more support, no more upgrades, NO MORE PRO VERSION... it reverts to the free version and you cannot add any more websites USING THE PRO VERSION because you no longer have the "Unlimited Websites" they offer in their advertisements. Which really means "Unlimited Website But ONLY for one year so you had better get unlimited website before the year rolls around or whatever number you have 1,2,3,5,9... That will be the definition of Unlimited for you dear buyer! If you take a look at their terms... it states... "Support, updates and plugin downloads are granted for one year after the original purchase based on the license that you have purchased. After one year is completed, the purchaser must renew their license in order to continue receiving support, updates, and access to download plugin files for the items purchased." WHAT IT DOES NOT SAY IS IF YOU DO NOT PAY THE ANNUAL FEE THAT YOU WILL NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS TO THE PRO OPTIONS ON ANY OF YOUR NEW "UNLIMITED" WEBSITES AND ALTHOUGH YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED THE PRO PLUGIN FOR UNLIMITED WEBSITES... YOUR UNLIMITED WEBSITES ALSO EXPIRE AT THE END OF ONE YEAR. YOUR PLUGIN WILL IN ESSENCE RETURN TO THE BASIC FUNCTIONALITIES YOU'LL FIND IN THE FREE PLUGIN. BECAUSE WE TAKE YOUR LICENSE AFTER ONE YEAR... IT IS IN ACTUALITY A SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE. Don't get me wrong... the websites you have already used the plugin on will continue to function like a pro! But the unlimited part goes away. No more additional websites with the ability to function as a pro version. So you lose more than just support and upgrades. Should I be complaining since I got the plugin on sale last year for $67.15? When I question the developer John Turner Co-Founder his response was cold, and calculated. Almost if as if he were saying HA HA... you should of read the fine print. (At least that is how you made me feel John) Great plugin... never had to use support. (That's one of the things that make it so nice) But I just can't help feeling like I've been mislead and cheated AND OBVIOUSLY... the developer could care less and I should know better! I suggested they changed the description so that future buyers don't find out what they really bought until a year later. That would be nice. Let's see if they do it. Bottom line for my review. Great plugin... bad business. Let the Buyer Beware!!

Hot plugin!

This is really lifesaver plugin! Simple and fast installation no problems with setup.
