Reviews

Nice plugin, and some support would be great

The plugin still works as expected but the support doesn’t seem to be very responsive: Last reply on the WordPress forum over 1 year ago, on the recommended official forum over 2 months ago.

More activity would be great since there are not many comparable alternatives.
