Poorly Written, Sloppy Design

I understand English may not be the developer’s first language, but rampant typos and errors are the first thing you notice when opening this plugin.

It is a paid plugin, and their examples show basic errors in layout that make their shortcodes ugly and in need of repair.

In the end, by the time you go through their process of adding their shortcodes into the visual editor, the resulting code is cumbersome and does not make much sense, and does not play well if you work between the HTML and WYSIWYG editor.

Maybe this plugin will work for someone with very limited experience with WordPress, HTML or Bootstrap, but I found it useless and consider it a waste of my $10.

Honestly, an hour of work on the developer’s part would at least make their plugin seem like they actually spent some time reviewing their work and resulting code.
