Reviews

No support

6 months ago I had an error in importing a CSV file and the author asked me to send him the file to determine the error, which I did. No response even after multiple queries. I suspect that the error is due to a “,” in the text but that hasn’t been confirmed either. 5 months ago the author said an improvement to allow weekly instead of daily tips would be worked on but nothing has happened.

widget problem

I use this plugin in some websites.
it has some problem in the widgets.
