Mass Page Maker Pro Plugin

Mass Page Maker Pro is a plugin for the WordPress blog publishing platform that allows you to insert multiple posts at once using a web form or CSV file. You may notice that it is similar to my previous plugin, Mass Page Maker and that’s because it is: as a result of some feedback from the WordPress plugin repository, I’ve decided to offer a plugin for a cost, that is completely unrestricted. This Pro version of the plugin allows you to insert posts with a CSV file, whereas the free version available in the repository is limited to the web form.

Cost — $20
