In general, this component is useful, although the free version lacks many functions. The source mode is quite messy: mixes html styling tags with css styles, the look of the codes is awful, terrible alignment of the codes. It uses some deprecated html tags and tables instead of divs. The css styling is very weak and lacks the possibility of customizing. The security update causes fatal error in the component, I had to spend a lot of time fixing and realigning the source code in order to run it normally. The design and layout of this component is mediocre and have many typographical errors. It is needed to edit the source very profoundly. Some parts needed to be totally rewritten. Maybe the Pro version is better, but this Free version does not worth to be downloaded.

Owner's reply: Hello,

I am sorry, but we use CSS and HTML at places where WWW standards permit that.
Component built for give users possibility simply check and edit code.

Very good component, lets me manage a library for a club without any effort. Superfast and excellent support. I've placed an order for some additional functionality and Andrew made it completely to my demands at a very affordable price and in a minimum of time.

Thanks Andrew, keep on with the good work!
