I had two questions. They were answered within less than 10 minutes and included screenshots to make everything very easy to understand. I don't ever remember experiencing this kind of customer service with any other software. I am totally impressed!!!!! PS: Not to mention that the plugin is the BEST FAQ plugin I have used, and I have tried a few. This is the winner on all fronts!

I report a bug about the free version on their forum and they fixed it in a couple of hours. Never seen that before! Super fast.

I had an issue with categories not populating and after contacting Echo Plugins support, it was quickly resolved. My ticket was responded to within minutes after submitting it and after a few emails back and forth, the issue was fixed. Superb support for a great plugin. This plugin does exactly what I need it to do so I am very happy that my issue was fixed. Thank you!

Fast support, day or night. Great options, but not bloated. Easy to use and based around WP core. No problems on PHP 8.

There are many knowledge base plugins available, but most of them only provide basic features for free (if any). The free version of Echo-KB offers a surprising amount of options. Additionally, the price of add-ons is very reasonable. Furthermore, it has an easy-to-use interface that enables you to modify the main knowledge base page, such as the default text for search buttons, etc. The last is particularly useful for a non-English website. Furthermore, it seems to work well with a Right-to-Left website without any CSS tweaks, which is not true for most plugins and themes out there. Well done!
