Hello mandeep, I have been using your plugins since a long time now, and I am really really impressed! Specially this plugin, i installed so many plugins but did not get what i expected. But your plugin is absolutely the best. Keep up the good work will consider buying proversion!

I'm so impressed as just installed for the first time. There isn't any hidden fees nor features. Also the Pro version is definitely reasonable to pay. In the future if the team could be able to add some search page results with the search options to nails the searches, it would be perfect for all.
