This is a great start but it needs a little more work
By , for WP 3.6.1

I've been looking for a plugin like this for a while, and for the basic user it's great. However there are a few features I'd like to see.

Firstly this isn't really responsive. The images are set by a fixed pixel width, so if you try and view this on a smartphone, the images disappear off the end of the page.

Secondly I'd like to be able to style the thumbnails a bit better. The rounded corners don't suit the square edges of my design.

Thirdly, I'd like to left align my boxes, not centre them. Again, the centred look doesn't suit my theme.

Finally, I think it is important to display at least the excerpt, if not the date too, for each item. It would be nice to display these under the image, something like this.

Perhaps what would be best would be to define the number of columns instead and let the plugin fill in the width accordingly, rather than having to choose a pixel width.

These are just areas for improvement and I'm sure I could probably hack it to do what I want, but I don't like hacking plugin code. For the time being this would serve you well if you're looking for a pretty way of displaying blog posts. As mentioned by Eladp the single best thing about the plugin is that you don't have to faff around with bloated Nextgen.

Broken in 3.5.2 watch out
By ,

died on 3.5.2
was great befroe that although the default styling is horrid
and I'd live it to display a post title outside of the image box , but hey up until the latest WP release it worked great

had to roll back to 3.5.1 for now hope it gets sorted soon!

Does exactly what I need
By , for WP 3.5.1

I was looking for a catalog plugin which works with WP categories and posts, instead of weird custom things. Plus this is really flexible since most control relies on the shotcodes, which can be put in any post. I really like this.

My suggestion for the future is to provide an easy shortcode way to customize the external border or even some hover effect.

Thanks!

Good Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

I was looking for something similar to this style for making blocks on my front page. This is pretty much what I was looking for, but could only find in bloated pay-for themes.

Very easy to use and configure to make it your own.
Thank you!

Unique, does what no other plugin does
By , for WP 3.4.2

I've been looking for a simple way to list my posts in a visual way... and this one does it, being able to view any posts, without the page refresh is awesome.
(yes it could use some work, etc...)
But we should support this author...
Why no one thought of this before Anshul is a wonder.
I've looked for solutions like this from my premium plugins and everywhere else, and this one stands alone.

Great work Anshul!!

Great plugin, and unlike all those NextGen galleries type, this one is really easy to understand and work with.
