    πŸš€ Personal Note from Developer (2018)

    Please note, this plugin lives on, it is far from “dead”! I could not maintain it the last 5 years (August 2013 until August 2018), as I had personal issues keeping me from it. However, the plugin worked very well in almost all cases over the years, that is due to the super stable Genesis Framework.

    UPDATE Is Out! Yes, the update v2.1.0 is finally out (you are on its readme just now). The plugin will get further maintenance and development.
