Installed the WP telegram widget. Had some issues. There may be a bug not sure. Setup is reasonably easy. A step by step guide would be handy. I connected to their Telegram channel for support. The Vendor took all the time I needed and provided quick answers. I was up and running in no time. I wish all the vendor had this type of tech service. And it was a free Mod ! I will most definitely purchase the PRO version when they release it and Im gonna check out what else they made. Top Notch !
