@AleksanderHansson Sorry, but that's how I determined that Social Experts was the problem. Turn it on with no other non-PageLines plugins enabled, the problem appears. Turn it off, the problem disappears.

Aleksander, on PageLines 2.21 on WordPress 3.4.1 activating this plugin makes all the "metabar" information disappear from all posts. That includes the author name, date, and so forth. It simply doesn't display on the site, nor is it in the source code of the rendered page.
Thanks for responding, much appreciated. I am pleased that I will be losing nothing I have now, though the question of whether I will no longer be getting updates to themes, sections, and plugins has not been answered. Will I still get those? Do those count as "minor feature updates"?
Plus is new to me because I'd never even heard of PageLines at all until a couple of months ago, much less Plus and I don't remember it at all from the signup process.
This isn't clear. You wrote, "PageLines Framework Developer is normally $397. You can purchase the Plus option (normally) for $397 plus $19 per month." So you mean that the PageLines Framework Developer Plus is $625 for a year?
It doesn't seem like the value you represent, discount or not.
For one, everything shown in the PNG file I already get with my PageLines Pro account without Plus.
For two, I want to know what's coming and when before I give you money. Plus means paying in part for vapor if I don't need chat support. What plugins, templates, and sections are planned? That do what? And are to be released on what dates?
Having been involved in web and software development for 20 years, I know that software release schedules are, as Douglas Adams put it, as reliable as a Greek ferry schedule. Isn't it possible that in 12 months there would be no new plugins, themes, or sections that I want, *and* that 3.0 isn't released? If 3.0 takes 18 months to released, I would have paid $342 -- but you say I will always pay less as a Plus subscriber. That can't be true unless you can guarantee a delivery date for 3.0 that is less from a year of the start date of EVERY Plus subscription. We can't know if Plus is worth doing unless 3.0 pricing is available now and unless we have a release date -- but see Greek ferry schedules above.

To be honest, before signing up for Plus, a monthly commitment, I'd have to know a lot more about what kind of plugins, sections and themes are being developed. For example, if it's a new theme every month, that's kind of useless for most existing users because we likely already have a theme we've worked hard on and aren't likely to just drop it for the new flavor.
Also, it's not clear to me at all whether existing PageLines Pro users will have all updates cut off at one point. That's what it sounds like right now. It seems like the $200 I paid in April will soon be just the start of a drip-drip-drip of additional payments required to keep everything up to date. I'd really like to see a much clearer comparison of what Plus means for existing users. What are we losing? Will our software stay up-to-date without additional payments? Will we be forced to upgrade to Plus to stay current? What will the next big update be for PageLines Framework? What will it cost customers at all the different levels?
Additionally, does Plus mean that in the future PageLines Pro users will find all their support requests ignored because they haven't opted for the extra Plus support? Will we continue to get our questions answered in the forums?
In short, more information please. Lots more. I'm not sure at this point if I've bought into a subtle bait-and-switch where I'm now going to have to keep forking over to get the kinds of updates and support that I thought were included in my original $200 payment. For a nonprofit, that would be a sore blow.
PS: It's a beta site in development so I cannot provide you with a link.

Nick, small bug report. Block Quotes are not working at all for me on a page in WordPress 3.4. The tags simply show up in the text. On the same page, Pull Quotes works just fine. Go figure.
