Please, send all questions to

I have no idea how to rate this plugin. As you read through the description there is no mention of their service. There is also only a "Download" button. Thinking that the description sounded good I decided to install it on my latest dev site hoping for some documentation in the plugin.

Once installed I see "siteid" as an option. Brakes on I head over to their site to discover that the plugin might well be free but the service is a paid service.

Negativity over I would like to add the following for the owner. Your solution does look good and your pricing model isn't outrageous. I did not sign up as I can't trust you because of what I stated above.

Be up front about this supporting a paid subscription service and we might well see this is the positive light that we should.

I will keep an eye on this in the future and may well come back and review again. Good luck with what seems to be a great service.

Owner's reply: Thank you for review.
This plugin is really free, but the service is paid.
I am sorry for that inaccuracy, and I marked it as commercial in plugin's description.
