I contacted support with a few questions and issues I am having while building my site. They were so helpful and answered all my questions. Thank you,

This plugin has not been maintained or upgraded, the docs are no longer valid and support will just string you along. Save your money and look elsewhere. There is much better well developed and well maintained plugins out there that actually work. This plugin is useless and is basically a scam at this point. You have been warned.
