Great quality plugin and news

newsmaniac

Super plugin. We had other news plugins and sources but always found them to be limited. This has everything we need need and more. Support was responsive and helpful. Guiding me through the process to setup and customize this Well worth the money. Helpful tip: Most of the automatic emails from them went to our spam folder. Check there if you don't get any emails.
