Must have been some marketing 'genius' that thought using a dark pattern like this would be a good idea. Forcing users to do anything is idiotic! All it demonstrates in the desperate measures some site go to to be popular, dumb!

Are you talking about the theme we are using Anthony? 🙂

If I ever came across a site that did this, I'd leave rather than endorse something with a like or a tweet before I know what I'm sharing/liking.

What a ridiculous idea.

I don't disagree with you. It can be a huge turnoff. I have seen some popular sites use this which is why we even wrote this.

I think both you and Antony make a great point. This was meant to be a "how to" piece and not a marketing advice piece. We cover all kinds of topics on WP JEDI, many of which are requested by our readers.

The plugin I posted above is the #1 top selling plugin on CodeCanyon of plugins of this kind. And has a 5 start rate.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing. As I mentioned, we didn't get a whole lot of positive feedback on this post. But I appreciate the link 🙂

Question: If I (or anyone else) can copy the code from the source of the page, why these plugin developers even bother to sell them and not offer them for free… At most, they can ask us to pay in… likes 🙂
