Works great

I have not explored all the features but the plugin works great for what I need it. Thanks for providing it, I will recommend it to our LMS users!

Awesome Plugin

I was face problem while using widget option but this plugin make my day with no issue. I wanted to show some woocommerce widgets only on shop page and it done it for me. Thanks again. 🙂

nice one

plugin works well and has loads of features. But please load your own face over https, or even better remove the http part of the image link so the system can decide for itself if it wants to load your face over https or not.

But really, all in all: remove that shit.
