Reviews

Finally a plugin which does one thing and does it well

There are tons of plugins with similar functionality, most of them will clutter your wp-admin with banners and upgrade notices or be very hard to use and configure. Most probably both. This is a perfect example how the plugins should look like. Easy to use and without all the unnecessary clutter and gazillion of options. Great work!
