Its amazing for UI developers

I can easily manage its front-end customization and client can take care of back-end complex directory structure. It was a headache to manage the things with categories and pages on front. Its better to use a shortcode. Huge thanks for this plugin, i am expecting some ready made front-end themes either free or premium but it will save a lot of time to customize front-end. I hope that other users will vote up for my request too. Keep up the good work.
