Reviews

It works with Visual Composer / Ultimate Addons / The7 theme

Many thanks to Safeer for creating the first reusable content block plugin that actually works with Visual Composer, Ultimate Addons and The7 theme elements.

I’ve tried Text Blocks, Reusable Content & Text Blocks and the old Global Content Blocks, and this is the first one that successfully works with VC elements.

Thanks again!
