    4 out of 5


    Originally I was not happy with the plugin and support. My website does require the use of other plugins but issue with this plugin was the sidebar did not sit to the right, it sat at the bottom. Support could not fix it saying it was down to plugins and that I should buy their theme. I seeked help from WPMUDEV and within 5 minutes, I had css code that fixed the issue right away. Due to this, I had originally given the plugin a 1/5 but i have now updated this to 4/5. Once you can get bugs ironed out and theme and plugin clashes sorted out, it is overall a good plugin.

    Review update 29/11/18: Despite the comments from the plugin creator, the issues were not fixed. I seeked help elsewhere and they fixed the issue within 5 minutes. It simply required a bit of css code yet the plugin advised that I spend more money and buy their theme. 1/5 remains!

    I am saddened to be adding a bad review and I truly hope to be able to change it to a 5 star review. I believe this can be a great plugin but currently it does not work on my website and the support is very slow. I have deactivated all plugins and selected a default theme and still there are faults. I have had a ticket open for almost a week and although there has been some communication, it has been little and nothing has been done to fix the plugin. I truly hope that it can be fixed and as mentioned, I can then change this review to 5 stars.

    Ok, So it takes a little bit of work, I am not the most patient person. LOL. The support is impeccable and they really helped me overcome any hurdle that I had. I initially gave 1 star and I regret that.

    I wanted a simple recipe plugin in and this one has everything I was looking for. I had a few ideas to add to the plugin, so I sent a message to the developer who responded right away and made changes in a snap. Super nice support and a great plugin! I can only recommend it!
