I was able to trial this plugin and sample the Dall-E image generation and WOW! This is incredible! This plugin can be utilised to fully automate a large part of websites with high quality, relevant images. I haven’t come across a plugin that is close to this! I spoke with the developer and he was quick and friendly to support a bug I found and fixed it within the hour. Amazing plugin and support – I’ll be buying the lifetime license shortly.

Before using this plugin, all my old posts had a featured image. Now, they don’t have any. Uninstalling with the option “delete all data” didn’t help. 25$ for a disaster. No reply from support for a couple of weeks.
