  2. Thanks so much for developing the FV Top levels plugin. When Yoast removed that function from their SEO plugin, and they recommended yours, I, like many others I presume, started using it immediately with no issues whatsoever! Tnx again & all the best from Dublin :) ps, Ive also included it in my recommended WordPress plugins list.
