The moment I activated it, it caused a fatal error on my site and I had to FTP in to delete the plugin. (WordPress version 6.4.3)

Super fonctionnel. Merci ! En revanche, la barre de progression est triste et moche. Préfère une barre flat design, que nous pouvons modifier la couleur. Se serait mieux. Great functional. Thank you ! However, the progress bar is sad and ugly. Prefer a flat bar design, we can change the color. Would be better.

UPDATE: Turns out it is indeed possible to assign different weights to different fields. So, I’m correcting my rating to 5 stars! 🙂 After having done a bit of customization I’m pretty happy with this plugin. The only reason I can’t give it 5 stars is because assigning the number of percentage points for each existing profile field is very rudimentary. I mean, every percentage field gets the same percentage and if, for example, I wanted to assign to one field 15% and to the other 25% (instead of giving both fields 20%) that can’t be done with the current version. All fields have to have the same percentage in the current version. So, it has some room for improvement there.
