Wir haben eine große und gut besuchte Nachrichtensite mit > 16.000 Beiträgen, beinahe 100.000 Medien nur mit Content Views Pro gestaltet. Also das Layout der Beitragsdarstellung der Startseite wird zu 100% nur damit erzeugt. Dabei kommen fast alle Arten zur Anwendung: Raster, Listen, usw. in verschiedensten Stilen ergaben ein abwechslungsreiches Layout der Startseite. Früher brauchten wir dazu mehrere Post Grid Plugins, das Theme und Theme-eigene Plugins für das Layout – jetzt reicht Content Views!

Hi there, is a nice plugin and I’m using pro version…. but I want use WEBP images and your plugin serve always .jpg images. Any idea? Al the rest of my websites serves webp images
31 de mayo de 2023
after studying many similar plugins, I chose the Pro version, because of the affordable price and a good description of the features and support for ACF, and did not regret it. The plugin is very fast, 12 product cards do not particularly slow down the speed of the page, pagination by ajax works quickly and everything looks nice. There was a problem – I had shortcodes in ACF field to display the rating, but when paginating with ajax they didn’t display the right information. I wrote to support and they solved the problem in 24 hours – wrote me a small piece of js code, now everything works. 5 stars!
