useful but the customer service needs to be improved. Purchased via Freemius, when I connect to my dashboard there is nothing, no download, no invoice, Freemius contacted, no response for the moment (it's been 2 days); on the WebCraftic support forum, email notifications do not work, and contacted on their direct email, no one answers. The activation of the Premium version is a gas plant and no tutorial is available: the activation is done on the free plugin but a second plugin must be installed to activate Premium options ... you could not do more complicated?
