Excellent plugin !

Thank you very much for this excellent plugin. It works very well and you helped me a lot with the css. You know there are some "little" things which make all the difference and with this plugin, you solve them all. Thank you once again.

Exactly what I needed!

Yes, I get it that the plugin costs money to actually use some of the basic stuff that you really, really need from a visual editor, but it was exactly what I was looking for. I think the developers of the plugin deserve props for the time and effort they've put in to make it the user friendly tool that it is. For a lifetime license and hours of editing ease, it's well worth the money, and is very competitively priced to boot.

A plugin scam for n00bs

Wasted time reading about this looking for a simple edit. Downloaded it and went to try it out. Now they want $26 for me to change the color of a single line of text. Yeah, no, yeah... They hope you catch Sunk Cost Fallacy and shell out the money after wasting time and effort. $26 for professional features only a webmaster would use makes sense, $26 for a basic edit is scam by design. #youcaught

Nice job

A handy tool - and if you charge out your time at even a modest rate, the Pro version is good value. BTW: To complain that it's 'Fake Free' is mean spirited. This is a well designed plugin with attractive and logical layout. You can achieve quite a lot with the free version. If you know what you're doing.
