We’ve tried both 2.5.x and 3.x versions of this product. To get either version to work with our Wordpress theme (a standard theme with some revisions to it), it required a custom workaround. A few weeks after building a custom workaround for the 2.5.x version, the 3.x version was released, replacing the 2.5.x version with a new/separate installation. This failed again, but requires a currently-unknown workaround to resolve. However, the only reason for the low rating is this: if you run into any issues at all attempting to install the product, expect no support whatsoever from the author.
