  1. The WP Info Card plugin is a potentially good plugin, but there’s no useful information on how to use it.

    There needs to be a detail video tutorial with clear examples of how to use the plugin, from beginning to end.

    I see this website https://www.creditcardinsider.com/credit-cards/excellent-credit/, and I suspect they used the plugin to achieve this look. But there’s no example online on how to use it. The literature and 1.5-minute video don’t help at all.

    • That website does not use this plugin. They use something more custom. This plugin is simply for showing WordPress.org plugin/theme cards in your layout.
