Installed vCard plugin hoping for efficient contact management, but it backfired. Received relentless scam calls despite taking precautions. No warning or support from developers. Do not recommend due to security concerns and lack of accountability.

Merci pour ce plugin. Il est fonctionnel, par contre la photo ne s’affiche pas. Ce serait top si on pouvait modifier les couleurs de fond et de texte. Encore merci.

The plugin is beautiful for a dynamic vCard generation. It has options to add pictures, titles, contact information and notes with a user-friendly interface. I would love to have social media links in the coming release ASAP. Keep up the awesome work Web Marshal! Edit: The feature is there now! Now I can add multiple links to the contact for social media platforms. It would be great if the phone would detect them as social media links and not as the homepage when read by an iPhone. apart from that, it works like a charm.
