    I’m afraid my patience has run out this issue has been going on for 3 weeks now. So I would like a full refund for my recent Google News plugin purchases from Properweb. I am going to look for an alternative.

    Denis

    this is very disappointing i am having the same issue, any update?

    Ana

    I’d agree, since this has been going for a some time now, and no response from the support, I’d like a full refund for my purchase too. Thanks.

    Just purchased a couple of days ago. It does not work, with the same error as others report. May I have a refund?

    TRAVIS

    How hard can it be to fix the damn plugin?? You said it would be done 2 weeks ago. Please keep your word and either fix it or else get on here and tell everyone that you will not do it. At least be honest so we can find alternatives. It’s a critical piece of one of our sites. I would appreciate a prompt response.

    Russ

    Seriously, is this ever going to get fixed? My site depends on this…please keep your promises and fix this.

    Russ

    Why is nobody addressing this issue?

    Russ

    Why is this issue being ignored? If you can’t fix it, refund us our money!

    From what I can find online it looks like Josh is gone. Obviously the newbies either don’t know how to fix this or don’t care. I went through a great deal of back and forth with support and they even uploaded a “fix” that fixed this except it had other problems and so it can’t be used.

    I have looked for a number of months for another plugin that would provide the same functionality as this one does – haven’t found one yet.

    Does anyone know of something that the frustrated users here could investigate?

    If anyone wants to email me at innovation999 at gmail.com I would be happy to pass along any useful information.

    One final thought for the new operators of this web presence . . .

    This lack of response will not encourage anyone to buy any of your products. It will affect your bottom line if it hasn’t already as reputation is everything.

    Just letting us all know what is going on would be kind – even if you aren’t prepared or simply can’t do anything.

    We all await your response.

    Russ

    The support team obviously helps others with issues on this site but for some reason are ignoring us and this problem. We paid money for this plugin and expect a little help. You promised a fix a month ago. If you can’t fix the problem, let us know and refund our money. Otherwise, please fix it so we can all move on.

    Jeff

    They don’t know how to fix it. Have had plenty of time to address this and choose to ignore users. I will not be renewing the Google News for WordPress license nor the theme next year.

    Prit

    Hello All,

    As a temporary fix please add this to your css which will hide the first Line item on the news feed and stop the hide the “This RSS feed URL is deprecated” being shown.

    ul.widget_links.wpgnews_widget_links li:first-of-type{display: none;}

    To Proper Support: Please either fix this issue properly or refund me and all others. If I don’t hear back on this soon I will be instructing my credit card company to recover my recent payments made to you for the of faulty plugin + zero support.

    Russ

    Prit, I appreciate the temp fix. Is there a way you can show us where to add this code? I am not very good with this stuff and don’t want to wreck the code.

    Russ

    Prit, I figured it out. If anyone needs help with this, let me know. Tha KS again for the fix, Prit 👍😁

    Russ

    *Thanks again…

    I’m a WP-Drudge theme user and having the same ‘deprecated’ issue as people with the Google News plugin.

    I appreciate Prits css workaround but I am no wordpress expert and have no clue about CSS.
    I was warned by other bloggers not to trust ProperWeb and their theme WP-DRUDGE…it’s a one-man band operation that can’t give support.
    I’ve had it with the WP-DRUDGE theme…I am going to cut my losses and just dump it and find another theme.

    Jeff

    Thanks Prit, this does work as described! Paste his line of code in the ‘additional CSS’ section under WP-Drudge Options.

    Appearance>WP-Drudge Options>Advanced>Additional CSS

    ul.widget_links.wpgnews_widget_links li:first-of-type{display: none;}

    It’s amazing that they are still selling this plugin. It’s broken but still listed in the products section and you can still buy it
