Reviews

Neat

Thank you for creating this, it’s really neat. I hope you have time to make improvements to it. Overall, it works fairly well. However, besides adding an area in the admin section to change settings, I have two suggestions:

1) Limit CSS. I removed a lot of the CSS so that it would mostly use my theme’s CSS.
2) I had to add “stripslashes_deep” to the title, description and author name in order to prevent slashes from showing up (in wpcb_controller.php).

Nice idea and plugin though.
