  • Found the plugin useful on 4 Nov, 2022

    This plugin is the missing piece to october CMS for all people that want to give a modern way to edit the website content to final customers. And the support is great, as always from OFFLINE.

  • Found the plugin useful on 4 Nov, 2022

    I have been using this plugin for a few weeks now and it's great! Very easy to use both as a developer and more importantly, for my clients to edit their websites. Any issues have been dealt with immediately by the Offline guys! Highly recommended!
