Очень красивая визуализация в стиле минимализма. Не понял, как я могу выбрать тип постов для добавления пользователями. Например у меня сайт с листингами и я хочу, что бы пользователи могли добавлять и редактировать только посты блога, однако плагин цепляется и к листингам, которые редактируются средствами шаблона и я не знаю как это исправить.

Пока тестирую, то что надо. Минимализм и при этом что надо - на месте. Не хватает списка статей для пользователя, что бы он мог после отправки что то поправить. И цены для PRO для России, очень высокие.

Плагин хорош и пригоден для использования на проектах. Особенно если предусмотрено создание контента пользователями, и нужно сделать так, чтобы редактирование контента происходило вне админки - самое то.
