Your plugin looks very good, I used it, but tell me how much it will help to my WordPress blog creaa designs
This is a great plugin which show cases my blog in an elegant way. When I needed the date format on each of my posts to be in a certain way (the way we present it in the UK) and I couldn’t get this to happen in Blog Designer I contacted support. They were really helpful and updated the plugin, giving me a preview of the update to use on my blog before release to all users. My blog now looks just the way I want it to look.
Very fast, responsive plugin with lots of great layouts. The developer is also very helpful and offers superb response.
Nice Plugin and Easy to use it. Nothing much help needed as I can do little CSS as per design myself.
The design is beautiful, nice, and professional. Their support team is helpful and willing to take time to solve your problems, with polite and sincere attitude. Their response is super fast!!
I’ve made several requests and they made a customized CSS to fulfill my wishes, except one. In spite of unable to fulfill one of many requests, they already tried their best to find out ways to do. This attitude is the most thing I appreciated it.
