"Webdorado" si conferma essere la solita fregatura. Presenta i plugin come se risolvessero tutte le questioni, sì, solo A PAGAMENTO. Tutto il resto è solo scarto inutilizzabile se si vuole che il plugin funzioni. Anche in questo caso.

I have now purchased several Web-Dorado products, over several years, for several websites. Each one has done exactly as it claimed to do, but more importantly, the tech support is superior. For that reason alone, if there are two plugins that do virtually the same thing I will always choose Web-Dorado. They are good people!
