My review is that this component have many great features but I think that there some codes in it 'place by the developer' so that we cannot remove the component from the website, unless, like me, we find the solution to remove it manually.
If the component did not has the issue with my template, I would definitely have used it and even upgrade to the pro version at a later time since it is a very interesting feature for our community users but I do not even have much time to get to the support of the developer to ask for assistance, sorry if my review is quite rude but I was really disappointed not to be able to use the component on my website.
Thank you for your review!
As for the issue you report, believe me we would never add "malicious" way of making it difficult for users to remove our components from their sites! This is not our ways, and after all, why would we do that in the first place? I don't see any reason... We will check the issue you report, and we will fix it, if we can replicate it.
Thank you for reporting this, and thank you again for taking the time to review our extension.
