Awesome-ness

Rating Cloodo

I’ve tried all the dashboard/admin notes plugins but I end up overlooking them because I don’t pay all that much attention to the dashboard. The one thing I do notice anywhere are the notifications which is what this plugin creates. You can color code them just like notifications, red, orange, yellow, blue etc.

Now I can stack up my wp dashboard with To Do items.

Seems like I used a similar plugin before but this one renders html whereas the other one didn’t.

medium sized thumbnails end up blurry. 300px
Have tried other sizes but all end up blurry.
Full size pics are not blurry so it makes no sense that smaller pics would be blurry.

Fastest it is

Rating Cloodo

My site’s hosted on a LiteSpeed server so I’ve always used litespeed cache plugin for WP but it’s gone downhill and giving me an F in gtmetetrx and lighthouse.

Deactivated litespeed cache, installed WP Fastest and went to getting an A score again. Nice light interface too. Might have to check out Pro.

free version is useless

Rating Cloodo

Maximum “Activity” length is 60 minutes. Activity would work as a shift for job/employment usage and 60 minutes is useless for that(except perhaps for the world’s oldest profession) and many things. Certainly useless for “Schedule Management” which is part of the plugin’s name. I really see no use for this plugin as is. Simply here to sell the extended version.

The UI is one of the ugliest I’ve ever seen.

Oh, and your demo site is broken btw. Why would I buy the extended version from someone with a broken website?

Gone downhill

Rating Cloodo

Used to be good but something happened to it. Checked lighthouse and gtmetrix this morning and got bad scores F (10% then switched theme from generatepress to Astra and got 18%)

Deactivated litespeed cache and installed WP Fastest

gtmetrix score is an A now (88%)

Lighthouse was 35% on desktop and is now 84%

The server is litespeed so I’ve always used litespeed cache and used to get good results.

litespeed even showed up as one of the heavy resources slowing down the site. LOL

Not too much but enough and it blends with WordPress as opposed to having bright page(s) with nags and ads. It’s also well thought out and can be used for different scenarios, by design.

No having to purchase a Pro version or expensive addons to use it in most cases.

kind of a pain

Rating Cloodo

Multisite. Addons won’t download due to my host having security features in place, plus they run litespeed if that makes a difference. No problem, just download multisite extentsion from github and upload to aam folder in wp-content he says. Did that and it worked for a couple of days and now asks me to download latest version of extension. Did that and it still says extension not loaded, download latest. (and you want me to buy the bundle?)

Very archaic way of doing things imho. Other plugins don’t seem to have an issue with addons. They download and install by themselves without me having to manually download and upload it.

The interface is kind of archaic as well with the unnecessary ajax. Just makes for a whole lot of waiting which is supposed to be what ajax prevents. Over thought out. Keep it simple.

I think I’ll go back to using something else. My one contact with the dev was similar to other’s experience. Kind of a rude dude that automatically assumes it’s you, not him that’s the problem.

Kinda quirky

Rating Cloodo

If you rearrange the menu items to shove down the rude plugins that think they’re worthy of placing themselves high up in the menu. Great.

Problem comes when you deactivate most plugins for testing or checking things. You reactivate them and Admin Menu Editor sticks them all up high, above Media and Pages even.

Not even the prior mentioned rude plugins do that but admin menu editor does.

How rude.

I bet pro/premium would fix it.

All I need to do is hide a menu for everyone but a single logged in role.

I’ve been using a certain membership plugin solely for this purpose and your plugin looks like it was plucked right out of that one. Exact same UI and terminology but it only does what I need instead of having to use the bloated membership plugin with a bunch of stuff I don’t need.

The best one

Rating Cloodo

I see 1 star reviews regarding something with codecanyon. Sounds like a strange situation but that’s in the past and doesn’t affect me.

At any rate, I’ve tried every scheduling plugin there is from here and cc and this one’s the best as far as feature/price ratio comparison. Doesn’t look like a 1993 spreadsheet on my site either. The only thing the free version lacked for me was a couple of layouts. Namely Calendar View > Novel Style and Agenda. Map capability and the weather widget are just nice little extras.

Useless if you use Elementor to build your site.

Rating Cloodo

Useless if you use Elementor to build your site which a LOT of people do.

There’s no switch for visitors to turn of/off dark mode with custom Elementor header and footer. In fact, most of my site is built with Elementor as are a lot of sites.

If I want everyone to see dark mode, I’ll theme the site that way.

If I want everyone to see light mode, I’ll theme the site that way.

Not being able to switch it on or off from the front end makes the plugin absolutely useless and we should not have to buy pro to get the main feature of the plugin.

badassery aside from export/import

Rating Cloodo

Live Search
Plenty of options

The only negative is that export/import is screwy. It’s not all bad but KB articles will not get assigned to the correct KB or Section. Sections get turned into KBs also.

The articles are the bulk of the work though so when you import, you have those but will need to recreate KBs and Sections and manually assign each article, one at a time, to your new KBs/Sections.

Bulk Edit options on the All Articles admin page would help immensely with this but are not available.

Giving this a 5 star rating regardless because it’s the only kb plugin that is nice looking, fully featured and doesn’t limit you to 1 or a few KBs.

If the import/export or bulk edit options are added but only for Premium, this rating will be lowered because I consider those to be default WordPress features that should work even for custom post/taxonomy types.

If WordPress has a basic functionality that’s been around forever, you build for it.

Client can't see squat

Rating Cloodo

Seems like it works ok in the backend but when logging in as the client, I can’t see the “private file” or “private page” I created for that client. That makes it totally useless. I set every possible permission for a user/subscriber to be able to view but still nothing.
Also there’s a fix for bootstrap compatibility regarding menus not having submenu items. Applied the fix but it didn’t change anything.

The alternative fix is to turn off the css for my theme and allow this plugin’s css to take over. Are you high?

I’m not going to sit around here all day tweaking things to TRY and get it to work and besides, I’m not a programmer which seems to be what’s required to make it work. However, if I was a programmer, I probably wouldn’t need this plugin.

Now there’s something a lot of plugin authors need to think about. “We’ve got tons of hooks and actions”. Well whoopdie doo. How about getting the basic plugin to work, then worry about the dev bells and whistles.

A good permissions plugin, create your own menu, maybe a cpt and you’ve got what this plugin should do.

SO what is this thing supposed to do? Make some content private. Other than that, this plugin doesn’t save any time.

The dev needs to fix the bootstrap theme incompatibility issue because a LOT of themes are based on bootstrap. Let the theme’s css be used.

Try to go to their site and have to comfirm security exceptions because it’s a self signed certificate. Why do ssl at all? First settings page has a tab for shortcode but doesn’t show one. Has another link to the SS site so I have to confirm exception again and it turns out to be a 404. FAQs is another link to SS site. Social login shortcode another link. Social sharing FAQs, three more links. Every one will require me to confirm security exception which is a handful of clicks every time. 50 clicks and several visits to SS site to set this thing up? And how many more will be 404s? I can’t be bothered with the games. Can’t put FAQs and shortcodes in the plugin page? Trying to boost traffic to your site? Get your site right first.

To link “good reviews” to corresponding facebook review, go to the fb reviews page, hover over the date of the review and that’s the address for the individual review. Right click, copy and paste into the review link field when creating/editing a “good” review in wp.
Now people can click on read more on the review and be taken to fb to see it’s real and you ain’t just makin this sh;up.

nice one but

Rating Cloodo

Doesn’t slow my site down by one full second per page load time like some other ___commerce plugin. Looks good as installed.

I would give it 5 stars if it weren’t for the “2% application fee”(per transaction) for pp & stripe who are already charging 2.9% + 30 cents but they’re actually handling the financial transaction. Now we’re up at %5 and that’s too much. The alternative is $69/$99 per year for pro/premium.

I think I’ll just go with something else. I don’t mind paying outright for something but I don’t think I’ll be selling enough to be paying ongoing fees.

It also begs the question; how does easy cart know how much a transaction is to be able to charge a percentage? Now we have to worry about the security of two third parties? (pp + easy cart) or (stripe + easy cart) And who is wp easy cart? Devs of one plugin and they’ve been a member here for a whole year and one month.

One thing I’d like to see is the ability to turn off the slider/animation/looping so you could put several on one page as a post excerpt gallery. I know you can work around it by using 1 slide and playing with the speed, pause settings and chossin no for autoplay but a simple on/off would be nice.
That and sizing things is a bit querky re: thumbnail size, container width, slide width settings in relation to each other. Maybe I’ll find it explained, somewhere, someday.

Other than that it’s slick, quick and works smoothly unlike many others.

Reminds me of a theme I once used

Rating Cloodo

With a premium theme I once used, every time I tried to leave the menu admin page, even after saving, it would give me a warning

This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave – data you have entered may not be saved.

so I would have to click Leave Page. Element Kit does the same thing, even on a test site with the only other plugins being elementor and elementor pro and running 2020 theme.

Putting the admin menu item at the very top in bright turquoise is kind of tacky. I would think putting it down near the elementor menu item would make more sense.

Imagine what admin would look like if everyone made their admin menu items some gaudy bright color. All of wp-admin would look like Yoast.

Fix those two annoyances and I’d rate it at 5 stars

This plugin does the same thing. The elementor widgets are nice ones though.

So far So good

Rating Cloodo

I read the 1 star reviews. Mostly insane except for the bundling with a theme without notice, breaking people’s sites. That’s no good. Along with having very little documentation, 4 star instead of 5.

For beginners, you have to know Margin and Padding so a “page builder” is not going to help you until you know that. It may take some trying to figure out which padding/margin is affecting your layout. Could be the element above, below or to the left or right affecting things.

I see the comparison between Free & Pro and I wish or hope that they will focus on the basics first instead of trying to make things like a pop-up builder.

Fairly new page builder. They should focus on what they started and come up with some good documentation and also make it work faster. I spend a few seconds waiting for things to happen, like a font size change. I have pretty fast hosting and my sites are 92% with speed tests, even with many plugins and heavy themes so it’s not my hosting I’m waiting for.

That being said, I’ve used all the free page builders and I really like this one the best so far. If I thought or knew there would be full documentation on the Pro version, I would buy it.

too many scripts and css loading

Rating Cloodo

right click and view page source and see how much this plugin adds to your page. 8 css files and 4 javascript. Too heavy. deactivate and page loads MUCH faster.

UPDATE: 7 Jul 2015, Ok, I tried it again. Down to 3css files and 6 js files and the pages load in a reasonable amount of time now. Much better. I still need to go through full setup and connect it to paypal.

Changed my review from two stars to three and will come back after I fully set it up with paypal and social login. I couldn’t see going through all that the first time if it was going to slow my site down. Hopefully I’ll come back and give 5 stars.

UPDATE 12 July 2016, So this is the game; Get pro, it’s junk, lousy support, try to get refund, good luck, stall, stall nothing; Checked out with paypal but the payment is thru 2checkout and without knowing, you will be signed up as recurring so a year later, get charged again, even after trying to get a refund a year ago. crooks?

UPDATE 14 July 2016, They refunded my money for the recurrence charge. Never did get the initial refund but I’m not worried about that. It’s been a year so I wrote it off as lesson learned. There’s not much of a selection for membership plugins. I finally gave up on them and went about things differently. I actually started over with something other than wordpress on one site and multisite along with a multisite clone plugin handles the rest of what I need.

Back up to 3 stars for this plugin and it’s been a year since I tried it. Maybe they’ve improved some things. There was a bunch of little annoyances like graphics not lining up, poor documentation, bad attitude of at least one person on the support site, issues that remain ignored etc. Some of it has to do with language barriers and cultural differences but not all of it.

I wish them well.

Rating Cloodo

Since you can only sync one user at a time, it’s no faster than just going to the target subsite and adding an existing user from the main site or other subsite.

The only difference between using this plugin or adding existing is I have to type a few letters in to choose existing. No big deal, even if I’m adding many and don’t know all their names. I can just keep another tab open with those users listed at the other site that I’m pulling from.

So why do I need another plugin running on my site that doesn’t really add any functionality and doesn’t save any real time?

Give us some sort of function like maybe a limit of 20 users at a time. Else it’s more like a blatant advertisement for pro version.
