    Although this plugin indeed sounds promising I have tried installing it on several sites and keep running into problems.

    For some reason the site keeps going back to the wp-login.php page which is not very helpful. Only when manually changing the URL to end in /wp-admin/ is it possible to actually get into the Dashboard.

    Also after the initial configuration it is not possible to make changes to it and even after deactivating and completely removing the plugin and then reinstalling the thing it flips back to the old configuration. This is something that will have to be changed for this plugin to become useful, because people make mistakes and this plugin does not allow mistakes.

    The plugin has not been internationalised, which I would call a sin in 2018 and it is something that is very easy to implement. If you have the code available somewhere on Github, I could help out in that department.

    Last, but not least I am not a big fan of plugins adding their Settings page all the way at the top of the sidebar (this one is added at position 4). Why would a plugin that needs to be configured once and then probably never again be at the top of my WP Dashboard? A case can even be made for simply adding it under Settings as the plugin does not have any submenus anyways.
