Reviews

Works as advertised. Simple.

I do wish I could configure the title (micro.blog-entry is a little generic for me) but, the plugin works like a charm and is quite simple to configure. Nice job! Thanks.

Does what it says without a fuss

Easy to adjust settings and the interface is clean and clear to understand.

Would be good to be able to remove the empty image placeholder and ‘posted on micro.blog’ text. Otherwise I really like this plugin, easiest indieweb plugin that I’ve tried to use.
