It looks like there are custom fields in the description. But it says custom domains are included in the paid plan when you install it. If it wasn't for this it would have deserved 5 stars.

Очень красивая визуализация в стиле минимализма. Не понял, как я могу выбрать тип постов для добавления пользователями. Например у меня сайт с листингами и я хочу, что бы пользователи могли добавлять и редактировать только посты блога, однако плагин цепляется и к листингам, которые редактируются средствами шаблона и я не знаю как это исправить.
