Great features in this add-on. More features in this than any other reaction add-on to date. My favorite addition is the click to pull up reactions feature. This has taken the cake on any other reaction add-on. Xon is an excellent developer and always impresses me with his intuitive dedication and updates to all of his add-ons. He may be an inspiring Xenforo Dev one day.
The support Xon has showed thus far has been fantastic! The bug fixes are rather swift and has implemented a feature that was suggested to be added. His work is very professional and clean, I would highly recommend this add-on!
Found this when looking for a widget example project to get me started on developing something exactly like this! Works a treat.
Couple of comments:
I personally would have placed many options on the widget options screen rather than within the main XF options. This could allow flexibility if to use the widget in different areas with different display options.
I was considering a widget that consumes the WordPress RSS feed to better decouple the architecture. This version runs WP code in process, so will be tied to Wordpress updates. But it does afford better functionality to dig out category/image info, and easy to extend to use WP Post meta data too.
Nonetheless, this Widget works a trea and looks good on the front end.
The Add-On runs perfectly. It does exactly what was announced and what you need. And you have all the options to customize the three things (threads, messages and avatars), as you want.
To slightly improve:
- For a newcomer to Forums like me, installing instructions in the "read-me" file should be a bit more detailed, as after a lot of reasonings I realized I had to upload only the folder "MrMinx" inside my Add-Ons folder inside some folders of the route described in the "readme", but this complete route was not described in the "Read-me", which I think was necessary to help the users.
- I have the impression that the original font type of the Threads, number of messages and last messages part in the Forum has been slightly changed (just an impression, I am not sure about that as I can not compare to how was before) -> Not an important change but this is my (¿maybe wrong?) impression.
But in conclusion: a really good decision to download it, as rfuns perfectly, and puts no publicity in your Forum like other Add-Ons.
I have asked for a decent support thread. I have asked for a decent tutorial. I have asked for assistance.
I am tired of asking. This item was not free and as such when a customer asks a question , they expect some assistance, that is known as support in most circles.
Youtube requires an API. Alright, how is it procured and where is it input? Many questions with zero answers. Yes, I am frustrated but this and would good cause. If I performed my work in this fashion I would be gone.
I have given every chance for this to be resolved and since it is clear that is not going to happen, I will refund the purchase.
