Okay, you got me on that one.
I should have been more clear in my original post. Yes, layout can be modified with CSS.
Based on the demo alone, I was under the impression that the plugin could achieve those layouts right out of the box without any additional coding. I was looking for a time saver and didn't find it.
Perhaps clarification on the demo would save confusion. "Premium Feature" or "Additional CSS Required" would make it clear.
I will say this, purchasing the full meal deal for this plugin would be a good investment for those who want alternate layouts / functionality without additional coding.
