Reviews

Excellent Tech Support

For me, in general, a plugin is only as good as its support. I had an issue with the maps not being interactive. I submitted a ticket and within a very short period of time I was given the answer. I was running two Google Maps plugins (there was a reason for that), and once I deactivated the other one, these maps became interactive. Easy solution, but one that I was not able to figure out myself. Great plugin and one that I will use on all my sites now.

Super

It is working really well. Thanks for this plugin!

Super

Tested some others before… for me was this the best as a free edition! Many thanks!
