Beware of the Freemium $59 yearly update service renewal fee!
By , for WP 4.3

I am getting so tired of these freemium plugins like this one. Reviews should be based multiple criteria, not on just if a thing works, but on it's actual, not perceived value. If 50% of functionality is premium, that should affect the rating you give, like 50% of 5 STARS. I gave this one 3 stars.
Charging an unreasonable $59 for PER EVERY small time domain, and for something you may use for a little while --until your setup is complete, is crazy IMHO.
Please stop encouraging these kind of developers who charge these rates. For a simple single site owner I can understand $12 per year, but what the hey, the basic does work and that is why I am giving it 3 stars. Uninstall this Freemium plugin and learn to make your own functionality. Don't be a PHP Codependent!
If you want to add your own column-bulk-edit-sort-filter functionality, in about 30 minutes w/o spending $59, then check out the FREE tutorial at.

Great, but you need to pay for key feature - sorting
By , for WP 4.2.2

It is nice to have some extra info in your admin columns, but in almost every case, you will want to sort by the info in that column.

I would rate this five stars if it had that feature - maybe the developers can make a more obscure feature part of their premium plugin and provide sorting free for us non-premium folk.

Plugin wonderful, but is way overpriced!

at a reasonable price, I get the pro version immediately.

Nice product with great support, but way overpriced
By , for WP 4.2.2

The author keeps it up to date and is always adding new features. He also is great with support questions.

Feature-wise it's a very nice product, but the pro version is way overpriced. Especially when things like ACF support are in a separately priced addon.

If it were more affordable, I'd add it to all of my client sites.

Almost a 5/5 plugin crippled by a HUGE removed feature
By , for WP 3.9.1

I really wanted to like this plugin, it does almost everything I wanted it to do, elegantly. Well thought out, feature packed, easy to use, etc. In short it's ace!

So why only 3 stars?
Like so many I use Advanced Custom Fields as standard in every WordPress install to completely customise the back end per project.
However the ACF support on this plugin is only in the Pro version, seems fair right? But that is $199 a YEAR for a developer license. While I am sure there are many agencies that are happy to pay that, as an independent developer, this is well outside the budget for an admin customisation plugin.

It's a shame they don't offer a per-site option with ACF support, or limit it to 1 or 2 ACF fields, so that we could test it out and see if it would be worth it?

I'm sure the pro version would be a 5/5 plugin, as there's a lot of good work here. However, without this feature, this free version is severely crippled and relatively useless for mine and many others needs. Hence 3/5.
