It's amazing what this plugin can do with the WordPress backend. Masterpiece. I'm impressed. And because I have tested hundreds of different plugins over the years, I can say with all responsibility and certainty that this is a high-quality plugin. I highly recommend.

Já experimentei outros (alguns que comprei e me arrependi), mas o UiPress é atualmente o meu favorito! Troquei em todos meus sites e clientes para ele, totalmente personalizado. Estou amando!!!!!
