What I think about this plugin now, well I have not used it in sometime as it was not where I needed it to be about a year or so ago. I recently came back to it to re-examine how it has developed since last I used it. This plugin has improved dramatically and I can once again recommend it although I have discovered a flaw that I initially missed and that is it has no place for tracking your suppliers/vendors.
I give it a nice 2 Dragon Rating

Hi John, great show as usual.
Loved the *rant* your Mom’s a playa! Reminds me of a story about the rolling stones opening the door at a chemist to let my Gran out, this was back in the 60s. All she said about them was “they seamed like nice boys”.
I was looking into the OnSwipe plugin (if it’s the same one) it is still up at wordpress.org: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/onswipe/
What concerned me was the support forums, tons of folks are have issues with the plugin. (link: http://wordpress.org/tags/onswipe?forum_id=10) and not one response from the developer.
So lets hope that they don’t go pro before they work out the bugs.
Cheers – get healthy and keep doing these shows – Thanks Rew
Thanks for the good work on the show glad to hear folks are enjoying it.
I am sure my mom was a playa in her day…
I have had no issue with Onswipe and I did notice it was back in the repository a couple days later strange guess they pulled it then put it back. Seems they have gone pro already and will probably stop support for the plugin too bad I really like it..
