I tried out this plugin, thought I put in my two cents. It’s very polished, and accepts your custom css. It’s also nice to just have simple shortcodes. Why did I uninstall it? 1. To remove the developer’s branding from the front end you have to buy the premium version, and 2. I despise plugins that take up and entire item on the dashboard. Would be much better to have it in the settings portion of the menu. Just my thoughts! Nice job, keep at it!
