Reviews

Amazing plugin – well worth the paid version!

I love this plugin - it made organizing my publications and media outlinks so much easier and more aesthetically pleasing! Beyond being a well-made and customizable plugin, a developer is a fantastic person who is incredibly responsive to any questions or concerns. Highly recommended!

Best Link Directory Plugin

This is by far the best link directory plugin. It's very easy to use, great display options and support is second to none. I contacted the plugin owner over 5 times and they helped me with everything I needed fast. Thanks for all your help and product. Peter

I love it !

This script is awsome ! (I am using the Pro-Version, but Lite is also great with less features)
