Critical plugin for CMS websites

By Ray Gulick (raygulick) on May 30, 2023

Blocks cause all kinds of complications for multi-author CMS websites. I trust Jeff Starr's plugin to help keep things simple for authors who don't have all day to fool around with blocks.

Thank you

Resolved sidebar editing issue

By drbobw10 on May 16, 2023

When I went to edit sidebar text in my website on a few pages, I could not find the text under the widgets I had made for them. An Avada tech installed this plugin for me and it restored the ability to see and make edits on the pages where the widgets were installed. Problem solved - great plugin!
