Eugene Harold Krabs (Mr. Krabs)

When I first found this plugin, I was very pleased with its work. And even prepared transfers to your language. Now it’s just not a working plugin, but an ordinary advertisement. Today I visited my site and saw 4 updates for my site. Automatic updates are included, but this plugin has not updated anything. That is, the free version now simply does not work. I also use the iThemes Security plugin, maybe it blocks something – I don’t know. But the author must track this. In general, I update via the standard console WordPress and everything is fine. So this plugin is deleted – why is it needed? I liked the notification function – something was updated and a notification was sent to the email. But now there is no such thing(. There are two ways out: either spend $ 29 or find a version of nulled (there’s an evil laugh here))
Thanks and good luck)

Fantastic plugin

Easy to use, does the job as required, no more hoping in and out of my sites to update plugins or themes, great job!
