This is by far the most powerful and versatile plugin I've ever used. It allows our information to flow intuitively, beautifully, and gives us everything we need to display all our existing WP posts and pages throughout our site - customized to suit our needs entirely. It's steady, reliable, and their support is great despite any time difference. I'm really impressed, I'm grateful and very happy with this product. Worth every penny and more.
