    Danke für das coole Ding. Lerne gerade WP Codex und hatte bereits meine ersten Schritte gemacht um ein eigenes Plugin zu bauen. Mit dem EPT noch mehr Stoff zu lernen 🙂
    Was noch cool wäre (weil ichs brauchen werde) der Start um einen Shortcode zu handeln 🙂

    Hey there,

    Are you actively developing this plugin?

    Thinking about using it as a starting point for a new plugin, but want to get a sense from you about support/updates/improvements/etc. I’d be happy to contribute some code changes to it, as well.
