Reviews

Administrators must have

I give this five stars because it give me(You) the ability to download a plugin which I might not have, particularly commercial ones where I am about to an upgrade which may break the system. The plugin in my testing doesn’t add any load to WordPress front end and is compatible with all the version of PHP I have tested, ie. 5.6, 7.1 and the latest 4.8 WordPress. Combine this with the upload plugin and theme plugin and you have a perfect pair. Thanks
