Reviews

Very useful !

This plugin is very helpful to create a great product documentation.

I use it on my website and after some step to install it (with some problems but it’s already the same thing with a new plugin)

I recommend this plugin for everybody who need a product documentation for everything. Moreover the price of the premium version is very afordable (only 19 USD) !

Lite version does not work at all

Unable to change the title of the document, and inserting a section does not do anything. Given this, and the other reviews, why take chances on buying the full version?

disappointed

Hello, I want to customize my documentor:
– I want to hide the character “#” after menu’s titles
– I want to change the color of the icone search , this icone is orange i want it blue
– I want always see my menu at the right side while scrolling the page The requested are feasible? cordially,

Furthermore, I have some bug, When I click on title in my menu at the right side with the name “XXXXX “1.1.2 for example. I arrive on a part that does not correspond to this level the click can take me towards “XXXXX” 1.1.2

Can you help me because the support of documentor does not reply me

Bentaieb, Raphael

Excellent Plugin!

Excellent Plugin!, it will be awesome when have different styles to each subsection like h1,h2 and h3 tags

Nice plugin, but buggy and poor support!

The idea of the plugin is good, even the integration works fine. BUT: It’s buggy. There are plenty of small bugs that make your life harder. I tried to report some of the buugs, but the support response times are quite long and the responses themselves do not help (either support requests are misunderstood, or they provide workarounds for bugs, or they to not reply at all).

I first considered buying a license, but at the current point in time I wouldn’t recommend that! I don’t think that this plugin “survives”.
