Plugin’s UI allows access to all customisation features. Each option is extremely well-documented. Settings are nicely organised.

When loading the plugin directory URL use plugins_url() instead of WP_PLUGIN_URL Eg: define(‘file_url’,plugins_url().”/your_file/”); Source: plugin-main.php, line# 21 Because WP_PLUGIN_URL doesn’t work on SSL properly, so this caused a delay in the launch of our website.

I’ve installed and set the options. Where is it? Is there supposed to be a shortcode? Have I missed something?
