4 stars only for the plugin. Photos are uploaded, but not shown and give errors. Cannot add anything to: Developers Publishers Genres Perspectives Themes Modes Game Engines Platforms Even if you add to these categories Manage Game Options There is no documentation on how to insert and where the pages are. I re-watched the video and text version of the documentation, but nothing is said about it.
