  • I had high hopes for this course, but it was a big disappointment. The instructor keeps referencing a PDF "link page" that isn't actually available in the course materials, and with most of the plug-ins he mentions, he just kind of casually breezes over them and says things like "I don't know.. this one's good.. there's a lot of plugins out there, guys... just search around." Also he rarely shows how to actually use ANY of the plugins mentioned beyond installing and activating it. This felt like a casual conversation with a developer more than a course for a typical CreativeLive user.
  • Sorry to say, I just watched this class and it was not worth the money. Wordpress Plugins: Best Of 2015 doesn't live up to the title. Only wish I hadn't spent the money or time!
