Seems not compatible with WPML

By onico0 on June 24, 2023

I love that plugin, but I'll probably have to switch to another solution since I'd like to go multilingual. Unfortunately, Starbox doesn't seem to be compatible with WPML. That's unfortunate for Starbox lovers.

Pleasant and efficient.

Pleasant and efficient. Many thanks to the developers. Works well with php 8.1 and wp 6.2. Better than other free plugins ;)

Very good support

By ivanbel on June 9, 2022

Fisrt time that I see such a simple plugin to use, very convenient and easy for the settings. But the support is fantastic. I wanted to tweak a little bit, and immediately I received all the solutions. Bravo !

Great Plugin!

I love it. The new in blog text feature for "[starbox]" is wonderful. I give you the strong recommendation to filte out " (quotation marks) as I spent several hours that you are not allowing this embedding id="1,fa,23" as your preg_split results in "1 | fa | 23" and finally only fa is shown as it is the only that mathces with a user id.... Besides that, great!!!

Good plugin, fast support

By ichadwick on April 15, 2021

Nice little upgrade to the way author information is presented. Very neat and clean presentation. The "latest posts" tab is very welcome. Thanks for this work. Very good and fast responses to support issues. Faster than about 90% of the plugins I've installed. That's a nice change. Will look at what the pro version offers and likely upgrade (I only have one author on my blog) because adding more "latest posts" will be a welcome benefit. Works in WP 5.7.1 and had no issues integrating with Verbosa theme.
