What Users are Saying?
“Just to say that this is a fantastic addition to an already excellent plugin. This add-on has allowed me to now edit and save an individual VC content element (not the entire template which is different) that is repeated on many of my pages in one easy stroke, by simply creating a Templatera template. Before I had to edit the repeated VC element multiple times for each page. This was just what I needed.” – John
