Reviews

June 12, 2024
I had been evaluating this plugin for a while. I makes managing and displaying content super easy and so I bought a license. Then I struck an issue owing to having a whole bunch more options to deal with the licensed pro plugin. I was able to speak with a support agent immediately and my issue (rtfm actually) sorted on the spot. There is so much creative control its ridiculous. Once you get your head around it your Wordpress life will never be the same again in a very good way. Well worth the asking price in my view

Hi, I’m using Blocksy theme and PostX. I’m trying to increase font size for headings and body on Blocksy, but the changes are not being reflected. This is still an issue even when I choose “Postx not to override theme setting” in individual post pages. It’s not a cache issue.I reached out to Blocksy and they said that PostX was somehow interfering with the settings. Please guide on way forward. I’ll really appreciate it. ThanksFor reference, here’s the site: bolddaughters.com

Random posts can’t be selected. You need to buy plugin to select such basic option. Edit: Actually it can and free version has lots of useful options.

The plugin is exactly what I was looking for. Plus the support is amazing. They gave me time even on the weekend to solve my problem. These are the people I’d be happy to give my money to. They do a great job!
