Reviews

Works great but very limited

Hey there,

thought I’ll give it a 5 as it works as it should. Though I would really love to see some more functions especially in terms of public/private state and probably some implementation of role rights.

It’s a shame that this topic is so behind in wordpress. Especially when dealing with user submitted content, different post status are important.

Thanks for your work!
