This plugin works fine – I am happy with its functionality. But even when I have the paid version, it adds banners all over the admin dashboard. On the side bar, on the top bar and most frustratingly banners on every page which sometimes cover page information. No matter how many times you cancel them, they keep reappearing on every load of the dashbaord. Sort of fair enough for free versions but I have already bought a license so I don’t know what the developer thinks is to be gained by all this “advertising”. Seems to be getting worse with other plug-ins too. Hopefully WP will crack down on this especially for paid versions of plug ins.

It says to check out the demo, but there is no captcha on any of the demos. When I tried the plugin, nothing happened. Gave it 3 stars because I want to give programmer time to fix the demo and show it actually works.
