Awesome and very helpful support team. Thanks so much to Tracy for the great support, sometimes it’s not only about the great plugin but the support we need along the way. Keep it up!

Calling this a plug-in is kind of a disservice to what it is. I was looking for just plug’ins to help me build out my blog posts, but ended up with a tool that can replace Divi builder. I recently bought Divi Builder but it felt really limited in what I can do with my blogs, so I found this installed and realized, you can build an entire web site with it. I deleted divi and am just using this now. Some of the features in this builder replaces a lot of my other plug ins at a fraction of a cost. Now I can get rid of my Common Ninjas Widgets (which is over priced) and Divi (which is slow and annoying to use) as well other Data Table Editors. I’m hoping this will be useful when I add it to my other existing themes. Customer service is the best part of this.

A new release of the price table recently came out (this morning). It was easy to install and update, but here is the best part. It was broken in a specific scenario that I identified. However, they not only responded quickly, the made a formal release update within an hour of submitting a request to fix it. Sure, the plug-in is great, but having support respond that quickly and appreciative of the feedback is rare in my recent experience with any software.
