Doesn't Work
By ,

Installed and used Media/Settings to try every option but the plugin doesn't make a scrap of difference to the standard WP gallery display.

Disappointing.

Ideal!

Simple and effective, makes a huge improvement to the native WP gallery.

Great image viewer

I had activated JetPack just for the photo viewer but this fork gets the job done with less overhead. Thanks for sharing!

Finally an Easy Solution for a Slideshow!
By , for WP 3.6.1

If you need a simple solution to display your WordPress Gallery images in a light box, this is your plugin.

I especially like how it displays the Title and Description in the Carousel. Oh! And the Responsiveness and "swipe" capabilities on the iPhone is nice too.

Thanks very much!

Exactly what I needed
By , for WP 3.6

Thank you. I've been looking for this during three hours, and finally found it here. Great plugin, simple, no need of making life complicated. Uses the existing features, takes the best of jetpack and disregards the annoyance. :-)

Excellent Full Screen Plugin

Great to have this full screen gallery plugin without the baggage of Jetpack.

Needs Minified JS and CSS Code
By , for WP 3.8

Is this plugin even supported anymore?

Part of the problem with Jetpack and so many other plugins is that the code is not minified for faster loading. It is easy to do and I see no reason not to have a full version of the script and .min.js and .min.css versions that the php uses by default, so that people do not have to go in and minify everything with each update. I will bump up the rating to 5 stars if the mini versions of the JS and CSS files are ever included and enqueued by default. Aside from that it seems fine.

Exactly What I Needed! Thank You!
By , for WP 3.6

After NGgallery blew up their plugin I was looking for a way to add decent viewing function for native WordPress galleries. I tried several jquery options but none them delivered exactly what I needed without a lot of plugin / css hacking.

Your plugin adds great functionality without the huge overload of Jetpack. Love it! Thank you!
