Reviews

Fast and simple

Hi,

I love your plugin and the fact that it comes with default images. It is fast and easy to use. Though it failed to detect custom post types created using ToolSet plugin, hope you add support for it and add more options to your plugin, it has great potential. I am surprised that wordpress doesn’t have many such plugins.

Thanks
