Reviews

Works, but…

It would be nice to see some guidance on version numbers – is it best practice to always use the lastest version? If so shouldn’t the plug in get that info from somewhere? If not, then what?

For now I’ll rely on the defaults that are set when you first install it, but maybe the author will stop updating in the future…? What then?
