Very Handy

@rock5861

Nice shortcut menu that makes all of the most common commands very easy to reach. It also provides Edit, Delete and Switch to Draft commands at the top of the toolbar. Saves a ton of time.

simple plugin that works

@chipdigital

Tried all plugins that claim to remove spam comments and this was the only one that worked. Good job.

Works very well ! Thank you

@laboiteare

the highlight color deserves to be more discreet in the menu, but otherwise, it’s just perfect!

Finally a plugin that works with memcached on my server and just for that, thank you 1000 times!

Ajax reload for flushing is nice 😉

It works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@dgswim

It should not be a big deal that a plugin works. None of the others do. This one is so simple. Download, install the plugin in wordpress, activate it and then set the turn it on. It works. Be sure and remove all the garbage all the others tell you to put in your config file first. You do not need to do that here. You do not need to be a programmer or a profession IT person to use this. If you have the memchaced installed on your server then this is going to work.
