Great plugin, invaluable!
By , for WP 4.5.3

Firstly I'd like to commend the developers of this plug-in in their support. It's clearly phenomenal.

In terms of the bad reviews on this plug-in, they are a little misleading. The plug-in is developed by the website ShrinkTheWeb, which is a third-party website. It works best with this website, however, there the free version can still be used. If you hope to use this amazing tool professionally then a premium version would be required. It really makes life so much easier.

The plug-in will soon be updated, which will release more features. I've checked the competition and this is the best service to be used with WordPress.

Thanks again for your awesome support.

Must have an account

I installed it and needed to have an outside account just to get it working. The drawback is... if the website (outside account) goes out of business, the same with this plugin, isn't it?

In other words, it is dependent upon a third person or third party just to get this plugin working.

It would be nice if it's just a shortcode and not dependent on anybody.

Plugin works great
