    I watched this three times and I still do not understand what to do to make these different styles.  Can you recommend something more basic?

    WP plugin repository says "This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress."
    Has anyone tested it with WP 4.4.2?
