    Nowadays buying a plugin requires that you weight several aspects that makes a plugin great. This plugin has a fine balance between aspects as design, a good relation between lightweight/power, out of the box functions but also a full documentation on how to tweak it using CSS and PHP at your own taste. On the top there is the developers behind it that will only rest when your questions are answered. After tried some other plugins I found in this one the answer to my needs – it’s not the others are inferior, but it’s a question if you can fit a plugin to the needs of your company. I would take this plugin in consideration before trying other cheap or more expensive alternatives. There is even free version at wordpress.org to try. In the end the value that you can take from it will be much greater then what you have to spend for a plugin with this characteristics and quality. Thanks.

    When using any plugin there are two important things that I consider. #1 – Support. If I have a problem, how long to get it resolved. #2 – Usefulness and Quality. This plugin checks off both of these for me. Great support and powerful plugin. It’s worth your money if you need any kind of information database.
