I have contacted them four times to simply get a copy of invoices for my accounting department, no response. If they don’t respond to something as simple as needing a copy of an invoice, I can’t imagine them doing any better with actual plugin issues. Planning to cancel my subscription with them.

One of the big issues that is beginning to “creep” into this industry is the idea of designing a “Crippled” product they used to do this back in the old days we called it Nag wear, the problem here is that the business model is not a sound investment. They are basing their revenue model on how much you upload to a service for which you pay to use. They do not provide that service, you do and you pay for it as well. This is a terrible way to generate revenue. In fact no sane business would invest in something like this. Crippled and broken

I am updating my review after figuring this out. Once you add your remote media library it WILL NOT show up within the normal media library. This is where my error was as this is what I expected it to do. Instead, you add the RML and when you are posting and select ‘Add Media’ the option will be given there. I raised my original review to a 4 because the plugin does work, but left that 5th star off because support was still not given to help figure this out. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I tried this plugin originally over 5 months ago. I was having issues getting YouTube to work, so I posted in the support forum. A couple people responded with the same issue, but it was never resolved. It seems the plugin is still being updated, but support is not lacking greatly on the wordpress support area. I decided to give it another shot today, thinking maybe it got updated and would work not. I followed the directions exactly and it says my channel is valid, but once published nothing is added to my Media Library. I posted again in the support forum, but not expecting much. Great Idea for a plugin, and seems to be the only one out there, but it doesn’t seem to work well, at least for youtube.

I tried every plugin and gallery that promised to integrate Flickr and Wordpress — and I finally found the solution using Remote Media Libraries and their RML Flickr Pro addon. I now use these plugins with Divi gallery and have achieved all my goals. Special thanks to Louis-Michel for his extra effort solving issues related to Divi and keeping me updated!
