Very Impressive

The plugin makes Mantra really come alive. And I like how simple it is to use.

Overdue for a WP compatibility check

This was fine when I was using an earlier version of WordPress, but since upgrading to WP 4.7.2 I’m reluctant to use it (and Mantra theme or any others dependent upon it) since it’s not (yet) shown to be compatible with any WP version above 4.6.3.

Works good

Works pretty good, all theme settings are restored. Good job!

Awesome job!!

I thought it would be more difficult, but it was so easy. Everything works just fine. Great job! Thanks a lot.
