PG Dating Pro feels like a dated script that would not feel out of place ten years ago.
I assumed the script would be free to download or would be available at a reasonable price, such as or .
Today, it is one of the most common ways for people to meet each other and a 2 billion dollar industry that keeps getting bigger and bigger.It is therefore no surprise that many entrepreneurs are trying to cash in on the popularity of online dating.In this article, I would like to review a professional dating script for you called PG Dating Pro. I logged into the dating website to see how it all worked. Members are displayed at the top of every page so you can easily view different members when you are browsing.It has been around since 1999, which makes it one of the oldest dating scripts available online. Unfortunately, my first impressions of PG Dating Pro were not good as the demo website was terribly slow.The script has not been optimised for speed, with loading times sometimes taking several seconds.
A couple of times GTmetrix could not even do a test of the website for me because it timed out!
The script supports a dozen billing systems, including Pay Pal, 2Checkout, and Google Wallet (though I did not test these).
Basic elements of your design can be modified through the admin area too: however, I found the options available for creating different packages to be limiting.
One of the most important search engine ranking factors of websites is load time. Users of your dating website can find each other easily by browsing your website or performing a user search.
Sadly, this is one area where PG Dating Pro fails badly. There are options to make people friends, favourite them, and blacklist them.
The developers of PG Dating Pro provided me with access to a demo website of their script in order to check it out for this review. I looked at a user’s profile and then switched from one tab to the other and it took 30 seconds to load.
