  1. Thank you for sharing these details about this plugin. For sure these are some of the most important things to make a blog to stand out of the crowd.

  2. It’s a great plugin, I am using it in a mutli-author WP blog I own. The main problem was that (as you allready mentioned) contributors couldnt upload images, and this plugin saved the day!

    I am using this plugin 1 year now and never had any problem with crashing or anything.

    Great suggestion, thanks for sharing Bhavesh.
