Reviews

Great plugin!

I started using this plugin as it was required by one of my themes to set header images on archive pages. I really love it! Will definitely continue using for future projects.

Great Plugin

Great Plugin to add image for taxonomy and display using shortcode in the require place.

Great plugin and brilliant designer

This plugin was just what I was looking for to achieve the image I wanted for my blog site. I had trouble figuring out how to make it work with my site, since I have no development experience. I reached out to Eduardo, the creator of the plugin, and he responded to me very quickly.

Eduardo spent a lot of time with me explaining things and helping me. It is thanks to him that my site looks great. He is a brilliant and talented developer. Thank you Eduardo!
