Do not fall for the "Live Demo" Buyer Beware
By -

I followed the instructions for the plugin setup only to discover you don’t get what the demo shows for CLIPPER THEME.

The demo looks professional with the scrolling banners – that is a separate purchase, which I knew because of how much time I spent on the live demo.

Here’s where the differences are. I followed the step by step setup instructions.

1st. No Sidebar. None, zip, zilch, not even an option.

2nd. On the “Categories” slider, the only symbol you get is a CIRCLE WITH A FILE FOLDER or a variation of sorts. Scroll the categories slider until you see “SPORTS/FITNESS” – That is what you get wit this plugin.

3rd. Lost Pagination – Page #’s – at the bottom of the coupon grid in the demo model you will see page numbers. When I contacted “support” I was told to use the “View All” option that comes with the plugin. It’s a button that does not look good that is placed in an odd location on the page.

Hi rsstoner,
It was older documentation that create you confusion. You may follow the readme.txt file inside plugin folder that give your right guide. Very sorry for not updated the plugin document on demo site.
The pagination and all is ok ,if you see demo site it is just added widgets in top widget area no need to add/change home page template. After latest update we have change theme home page file only so don’t worry about page template and all.
Thanks

Do not fall for the "Live Demo" Buyer Beware
By -

I played with the live demo feature. I went through the features, pages layouts etc., I then decided to make the purchase.

I started following the plugin setup and discovered it is not the same.

1. No page sidebar. The option to set up the sidebar is not there when you “add” a new page. In fact when you go to “add new page” per the detailed instructions for installation, it looks nothing like the step by step instructions. There is no Sidebar option.

2. Forget about the nice looking category slide bar. YOU DON’T GET WHAT IS SHOWN IN THE LIVE DEMO The only options you get are circles with a picture of a file folder.

3. Lost Pagination – Page #’s – In the Live Demo at the bottom of the coupon “list” Page 1 of 41 2 3 4 ›› Not available in the actual plugin. I was told to use the “View More” button that comes with the plugin.

I know I wasn’t going to get the nice looking store coupons and store logos. But, if anyone knows how I can get those, let me know.

Stay away if you're using Flatter theme

This plugin is a mess if you are using Flatter theme for your site. Support guys are ok to a certain level and then they just give up.
**No refunds**

    Product completely misrepresented in the “Demo” Using Clipper Theme

    You don’t get the nice looking “Categories” scroll. The only thing you get for pictures are a circle with a picture of a file inside – or a variation of such and the category name underneath

    Sidebar Page not supported. I’ve waited for a response/fix! DONE WAITING!

    No pagination – page numbers disappear under the grid coupon screen.

    Stores, coupons, etc., do not appear as large as in the demo. Live version makes them smaller.

    “View More” button is nothing what it looks like in the Demo model, or even in the placement of it. It is a blue box that appears all the way on the right hand side with no adjustments to move it anywhere.

    I knew I wasn’t going to get the logos or banners. If anyone knows where I can get the store logos as listed on the demo I would appreciate it. As far as the Banners that are shown with the nice advertisements, you would pay extra for, which I knew before I purchased this.
