It's hard not to go for the premium version, when you see how good the plugin and the support are.

Using this on a clients' site we were excited about the possibilities it had in store. After using it quite a bit, and going through the various options, on several templates, we experience it as a very sturdy plugin capable of more than it says on the tin. We wanted something "very custom" and we needed to tweak and tweak and tweak to get to where we wanted to be, due to our wishes ofc. But we are really happy to say that this plugin delivers! The support from the developer is excellent and we could not be happier with the answers we have had so far. The help has been needed as we don't do code, and sometimes, we needed some code. Without the help, we would have easily struggled a lot more. So this is a HUGE thanks to Steven, for the build, and the support. Thanks a lot for a great plugin.

Have been using this plugin for 2 years, recently had an issue with my website where I needed support. The reply I got from the plugin author was exactly what I needed. Problem solved, and it wasn't even an issue with this plugin. *****
