This plugin is originally inspired and based on "What should we write about next" plugin by Vladimir prelovac. well most of you must be thinking, if that plugin already exists then why did you create another one.
Well the answer is simple, mine is better. The problem with Vladimir's version was that their were lots of spam received by users as the script was made pretty simple, When a user submits the feedback just email it to the admin. So the admin mailbox is filled with many mails that were nothing but spam.
My approach to the plugin is that I removed emailing and added all the feedbacks to database after that they are sent to Akismet to check whether they are spam or not, and sending data to Akismet of Manually marked feedbacks to increase its Accuracy.
The Only bug in the Plugin currently is, that when you update settings for the plugin or remove feedbacks using bulk actions, it still displays the old data.
This is not anything major just refresh the page and it will show the new data, this happens because of SQL caching old data, I am looking for a fix to this issue. I will update the plugin once I find it.
