never showed up. shows installed, but nothing. checked settings. Even deleted and reinstalled. was wanting to see if it did is a BUILDER ONLY for new pages and ones you build only.... or can edit a current theme as well. from what i saw, is a builder, not true editor that can edit current ALREADY created site pages. I reinstalled. got it to work. It did work ok at basic editing on clean page, within its own page box, but not on frontend or pages, but is much better than i had first thought

I had downloaded this plugin sometime ago, then after upgrading to WordPress 5 I wasn't sure if it would still work, but after updating to the latest version I'm happy to see that it works great.
