Had tried several plugins before stumbling over this one trying to do the same thing. Tried the free version and bought the plugin within 2 hours, things I’d been trying to do with other plugins were very simple with this one. Great support, provided some help with some custom CSS for an issue I was having. I offered up some future suggestions for improvements which the author seemed very open too so will look to see if they arrive. All in – Great plugin well worth the few $ for the license with some great features, works beautifully across desktop, tablet and phone.
