Very good support that answers quickly. The Pro version runs perfectly for me. I hope that this project doesn't stop. Other plugins I tested were not as far as this. This plugin still has a lot of potential.

I'm a full time WP consultant. My "side hustle" is genealogy and this plugin looked like it might be useful on my genealogy WP site. The activation instructions are missing key pieces so anyone who is more versed in genealogy than WordPress will hit bumps in the road to activation. The trees that are built by the plugin don't meet the expectation of trees that can be built on top sites like I was disappointed.

After having looked for a plugin for a family tree all over the repository, I discovered Treepress. It´s very easy to use, and the premium version is very complete. I had an issue with the mobile devices and the developers fixed it quickly.

I prepare my family tree starting in 1280 a.C. in gedcom with GrampsAIO. Import all in Treepress and all work fine. The family tree is very simply to view for users and the family members is very powerful. Nice plugin.
