First off, the plugin technically works and up to recently I had no issues with it. However, it recently started displaying a giant ad for another of it’s plugins on all of my site dashboards when I logged in. The problem is the ad doesn’t even let you know that it’s associated with this plugin. I had to do a bunch of Googling to figure it out. I thought my sites had been hacked. There is a “Never Show This Again” link in the ad. This was supposed to be a simple plugin. Essentially it was 4 lines of code to disable the fullscreen editor (83 if you count all the boilerplate WordPress plugin registration and comments). Now it’s bloated up to 280 lines with all the WP UltimaKit ad nonsense.

I and all my clients were lost with this new full editing experience. They didn’t know, where to click to get back to the dashboard, thanks to this plugin, they can manage their website again in a logical way. Ciao! I edited this to 2 star rating (just works) because it now shows a big unnecessary sales notice on the whole WordPress Dashboard to upsell his other works. Just don’t do this mate, don’t… and the guidelines also say, don’t do it… https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-org/detailed-plugin-guidelines/#11-plugins-should-not-hijack-the-admin-dashboard So a 2 star rating is generous.

I installed the plugin, activated it and nothing happened. Still all in fullscreen mode. I guess it needs a fix. Edit: It works totally fine. Found some bugs + incompatibility issues with custom code – that´s why it conflicted before and didn´t work.
