Reviews

Easy & Attractive

As an intermediate level web designer, I am always searching for plugins that are not so advanced that I cannot understand how to set them up. Blog Design certainly fits that bill! I needed something that would provide an attractive display and was user friendly. Blog Design provides me with several options for the appearance of my summarized blog posts, which I like. I can change it up from time to time, and it only took me about 5 minutes to set the whole thing up! Thanks designers!

It is awesome

I used it on my first website for news page and it is the best thing ever. It looks good and I am using the free version. I am very thankful that you guys made this plugin. I hope in future we succeed in our business and purchase your product.

Short Code Parameter

I really like the plugin. Yes the short code is nice, but its lacking with the parameters, search the docs and found nothing. Hope you’ll consider adding this. Thanks ..
