Reviews

Removed from post & left the category

Worked exactly as I needed it to. Just when you think you’re going to spend hours doing something that you would think was easy, you find the perfect plugin.

I used the remove category, and left any other categories alone. Did exactly what I asked it to do.

Thank you!!!
