It's written cleanly and documented well but it falls down:

Fast and lightweight - I would say the 'fast' part of this is inaccurate. Sure when visiting a page that has been cached it will be quick but for anyone being the first person on that page or the first person on it after 8 hours it is slllooooowww. Lose 1 star.

Requires Apache - no where on the page did it state apache was a necessity. Anyone using NGINX good luck.
Lose 1 star.

If your server is apache based and speed doesn't bother you then it is quick to install and get running and a worthy purchase at the correct price.

Hi, thanks for your rating,

I am sorry to hear about the minus 2 stars but i think that if your site is loading slow then that is a server issue, i have used this script myself on some sites and have multiple customers and also the demo site are all fast loading.

About Apache, it is needed to use the htaccess file for rewriting the urls and that is not supported by Nginx but it is possible to convert the Apache's .htaccess to Nginx configuration and i will update the documentation to mention that, anyway thanks for your feedback :)

for Customizability

Probably some great features if it worked under an SSL ONLY website. It's my mistake for not asking first. I purchased this to use under the main root (as a subfolder) which this script does offer. I'm sure I could probably get the routing to work properly but don't have the time to mess with it right now.

Probably works great on it's own domain (or subdomain) without restrictive SSL only requirements. Giantbomb (http://www.giantbomb.com/) which is used to populate this script doesn't seem to use ssl/secure links - which kind of defeats the purpose for SEO (Google requirements).

Hi, i think your 2 star rating is unfair, first i have never advertise for this script to be supporting SSL HTTPS, as you say yourself its your mistake for not asking first, you are right that it is because of the giantbomb api that only offers HTTP links. But not having SSL is not a issue with a site like this that does not collect any user data will not have a negative effect on your seo although google will favor using HTTPS if possible.
