Useful and great support

We use profile extra fields and updater from BestWebSoft. Extra fields fills in the gaps we had before. We have a problem with the plugin, making our website unaccessible due to an unsupported PHP version. The support team was very responsive and the issue was resolved in no time!

Nice tool

Very useful plugin for display user information. Unlimited fields and totally free. Keep the good work.

Excellent tool to get more information about your users

I installed this to try and get more information about my site’s users, without affecting their browsing experience with intrusive pop-ups or by hijacking them to a survey page. This is just what I needed: lightweight, intuitive, it integrates seamlessly into the WordPress workflow. Great job guys! Thank you!
