  1. Good Day…I am thinking deploying this project management software for summer leadership academy where I am the program manager. We will several thousand applicants per year and will need to have a log portal for uploads and downloads for individual student folders. One of my concerns is that they do offer ANY phone support. After paying the fees and installing the plugin, I would only be able to create service tickets for their team to respond electronically. Is this normal for this industry?

    • Hello, we have been installing and customizing WordPress sites for more than 10 years. It is not uncommon to find powerful, influential custom plugins created by a single individual or small teams. Most often support is via email, message forums, onsite chat and increasingly via Facebook groups. There are many great plugins original launched by entrepreneurial coders who built great businesses from a single plugin, WP Job Manager and WP Robot are two great examples.

    Hi Jose,
    thanks for great post. Searching for some information about the developer of wp-client. Nothing found in the web. Do you have more information in the mean time?
    Also there is no information about performance. I have tested homepage of wp-client.com and got horrible speed results. Did you check a site with wp-client integration? In this context do you suggest to implement plugin in special customer-area-subdomain?

    Thanks for reply,

    Hello I am looking at this solutions is there anyone I can speak with or email about this solution?

  5. My name is Michael Penner. I own flextechmedia.com in Loveland, Colorado, and have used Wp-Client Pro for about five years. Twice I asked them if their plugin would continue operating if access to their licensing server ever became a problem. I was thinking about a situation where their licensing server malfunctioned. They assured me it would continue to operate. It was a lie by omission. Sure it will work, just don’t deactivate the plugin during maintenance or, even if your license is still valid, it won’t work if the licensing server chokes during reactivation of the plugin. Months later this plugin cannot be updated because of…wait for it…a screw up on their end with the licensing server. If anything goes wrong now and the plugin gets deactivated, that’s it for the website running it. If I try and update the plugin, this requires reactivation. That fails, and all related workflows collapse. Their support team has ignored repeated requests for help. Stone silent. I have captured their promises, which they put in writing and violated. I will be posting these threads on my own site in a plugin warning review so people can see their customer service philosophy in action. Their own words, their own promises broken. I stand by these claims. I even gave them access to staging sites where they can troubleshoot the problem. Leased code is only as good as the people that support it. Avoid this plugin. I have to retool several websites now to use another approach. It will take about 40 hours to reconfigure, and I cannot bill for it because this is not my clients’ fault. Damage to my reputation, damage to my bottom line. Not worth it. in fact, any code lease situation like this will now be met with a very suspicious eye. If it needs a licensing server to become operational it is sticking the integrator like me with a huge problem when that fails and support does not care. Feel free to contact me if in doubt.

    Like Michael, I have been having problems, too. I have been using WP-Client for one of my clients for 5 years. My client purchased the lifetime licensing and support, but their license was deactivated out of the blue on January 1. When I dug into it, it looked like they deactivated the license because I hadn’t paid the annual fee (as I previously stated, I paid for lifetime license and support). Because their support takes FOREVER to return emails (if ever), and my client’s site was unusable, I paid for a new license to get my client up and running. Went I finally heard back from WP-Client they said they would credit me. After numerous emails they finally claimed to have credit my AMEX. They never did. I am now filing a dispute with AMEX and looking for a new program. They are really terrible to work with.
