Q. When I added [wpabstracts] shortcode to a front-end page, the layout did not fit the page.

A. Ensure to select the full-width template for the page using [wpabstracts] (no side columns).

Q. After installing the plugin and add [wpabstracts] to the front-end, I’m still unable to submit abstracts.

A. You must create an event (e.g. EPA Conference 2018) first to allow submissions. Click the Events tab, then New Event.

Excellent support

The plugin has everything needed to handle abstracts submission on a conference website. I use it for festival speaker applications. It’s intuitive and works out of the box. As long as reviewer management is non-essential the free version is all you need. The support is extraordinary, a conflict with my theme was solved beyond expectation. Thanks, great work.


It makes everything we need and every time that i’ve emailed for any doubts Kevon has responded. Great plugin and support!

Outstanding customer support

Outstanding customer support. When I first downloaded the plugin and purchased the premium version it didn’t work quite as I expected. I wanted a refund. Instead the developer offered to do what was necessary to make it work for me. He did! Really went above and beyond. Works great.

Awesome plugin and equivalent support

Just the job for looking after abstract submissions for conferences to give your event and its contributors a professional image. I had a slight conflict with my WordPress theme but Kevon logged in to my site and fixed it. You don’t often get this fabulous level of support. Thank You 🙂

Top-notch plugin

This plugin is well-designed and has a wonderfully intuitive interface. Support from the developer is simply amazing. Worth a lot more than he is charging, that’s for sure.
