Reviews

Finally!

I thought a plugin like this will never be available for WordPress. I’m glad to have found this from an old post I shared in Hacker News / YCombinator. Through this plugin, or meta plugin, anyone can put their blog into the Decentralised, Distributed, Federated, and Open Network (“DDFON” as I call it) space.

Works like a charm. Good job and thank you! Makes it all easier!
