Everything can be customized: sizes, colors, paddings, margins. Swift Box automatically reads your changes and adapt the rest!

This means lighter code, faster loading pages and a short learning curve, leaving you more time to customize the plugin using the many options explained in the documentation!
Swift Box is also ready to be translated with ease. Date strings are neatly splitted in arrays, that you can overwrite during the plugin initialization.
