Can I use this plugin with any WordPress theme?

No. This plugin can be used only with themes listed in the “Requirements” section.

Why there are “Basic Features” and  “Advanced Features”? What is the difference?

The Basic Features provided by default unlike “Advanced Features” which depend on the theme and other plugins installed. So the number of advanced features might be vary.

    I just bought this plugin, is there a support forum for that plugin?

    – the anonymous posting option is visible for non logged in members.

    -I like that ppl post a blog and it appears under their account in their listing (like i thought it will do) , visible by a widget which u can include in linsting page or in their profile. but i saw its posting a normal post in the area reserved by the pages general private blog. in thought its similar to Notes of fb.

    how can i separate that bc so i don’t have any more a blog for my page but where all ppl post what they want.

      We’ve got a support forum today: https://forums.appthemes.com/sponsored-posts/. Please post support requests there.

      1. I can see Anonymous posting issue. Will fix it ASAP.
      2. This plugin allows to users create a Blog posts as clearly explained in description. If there is something that makes you think that it creates some separate posts which are not supposed to be posted in general Blog – please let me know where is it and I’ll change it so it will never confuse kind people.

      Could you please post issue on forum https://forums.appthemes.com/sponsored-posts/ There I can provide better support.

      Thank you!

    Even if anonymous is not chosen in vantage settings, it’s visible and ppl are able to post anything they want. but as its posting to the page private blog i don’t think this plugin is useful for me. pls help me to show them only on their profile and be able to show them in the “single listing – main content” of a users private listing true a widget.
