    Hi Ofir,

    I have a question about this Add-On. To use it I have to give access to my full (corporate) Google Drive.This is a problem which is also the main reason why I don’t want to use services like IFTTT. It’s effectively “man in the middle” approach.

    My suggestion is to implement “scopes”

    https://developers.google.com/drive/web/scopes

    which mitigates the security / privacy issue.

    I cannot see how the company behind the add-on / service is doing the protection of my data.

    Or do I make the wrong assumptions? If so, please enlighten me, this kind of thing (giving rights to black boxes) is bugging me for years now.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Add-ons are rarely the big issue for most people building a site. The same applies to WordPress…

    The real truth is that plugins, themes, or templates are often not the biggest problem for most WordPress users. They want to get traffic, they want an online business. Keep adding or changing plugins, themes and other features does not solve their real problem. WordPress “as is” won’t build an online business. It’s missing a do-able start-to-finish BUSINESS process.

    Surely, you can slog through the mountains of business building advice and tools that are out there. But for most WordPress users it all ends up being too much.

    So, despite the dazzling display of WordPress features, the reality for most (non-tech) people who want to create a web business with WordPress is that they need to adhere to an easy-to-follow, all-in-one, proven, ethical webbusiness-building system (not a get rich quick scheme), tailored to the WordPress platform, to get (1) a significant amount of traffic and get (2) targeted traffic (example of such a system: WealthPrinciples dot net).

    Otherwise you’ll end up having (and building) only a WordPress webSITE (or BLOG) but not a webBUSINESS.
