This is an excellent plugin,very easy to use,I love it. My website looks very professinal now. I have built my website by myself and I do not understand technical jargon so I had to ask several questions and the support and assistance has being excellent, Csaba has helped me for two days answering my questions and even helping me with issues not related to this plugin. I highly recommend it.
