Don’t you just hate it when you download a plugin and you find out that in order to use it you have to buy a pro version?

Even bigger problem is when you use a plugin and then just out of the blue the developer decides to add a pro version and he either changes the way the plugin works or he converts some of the free functions to paid ones.

We sure did hate that and a few years back we decided to start creating some of the plugins ourselves and we decided to share them all with the WordPress community 100% FREE.

Nowadays we have more than 15 plugins and you can download and use them all for free by Clicking Here.

If you liked this plugin and you want to help support our cause, buy us a coffee. Studies show that coffee helps with creating WordPress plugins.
