Free version is very limited
By ,

The free version is so limited that it's not worth the time, in my opinion. The pro version on that other hand is pretty good, but totally ruined by the support. I got rid of this in a day.

As Good as Any, Better Than Most
By , for WP 3.8

Wretched UI, feeble documentation and broken English keep this plugin from having ten times more users than it has.

If you can get past that, and if you can spare $24, you'll have one of the finest two or three WordPress popup galleries around. I think it's the best, and I looked at them all. I installed and uninstalled them for days before testing this one. I spent half a day with it today, learning what it does and how it does it, and it's working smoothly now.

I would like to see it handle YouTube playlists a bit better than it does. I would like to see it make a little more effort to find my video file. But I can work around these things. Overall, it does what I want it to do.

Awesome support - the best product support I ever had
By , for WP 3.7.1

I was having a problem with this plugin implementation. The problem was in my inbuilt GoDaddy WordPress installation configuration.

- Initially the plugin admin area was not showing images. The support team helped instantly.
- Then the images came but the plugin failed to display results. Again they helped me out to change my hosting configurations. Again it worked!!
-Then my website started displaying wrongly, the gallery. They helped me again !!

All through a span of around 14 hours. The support team was always replying and always giving me solutions.

This is the best plugin support I ever had! I recommend this fully !

really awesome !

Hard to reach support
By , for WP 3.6

I have altered my original complaint because the company has sent a new file. i bought the pro version, which does not work because of "timthumb" scripts. I had to search forums to find out how to contact them, because their contact form requires that you hand over all your site info and passwords.I find it frustrating that i had to ask several times, and then they want access to your files for a fix. i'm sure it would be fine, but Im obviously corresponding with someone on the other side of the world (emails are dated with tomorrow's date), so I just can't hand over access to an unknown element. Really too bad, the plug-in did all that I wanted but I am using something else.

Nice Plugin, Bad Support - incompatible with MP6 plugin
By , for WP 3.5.2

I bought the plugin, cause it was exactly the galery style i wanted to have.
After installing it, i noticed a poor performance while uploading and editing files.
then i had the overkill error: i couldnt insert shortcodes in posts or pages, so the plugin was useless.
I wrote in the support forum, but there wasn't an answer for weeks. not even a short "we work on it" message...
The solution was this (found it out myself after long trying...):
The plugin is NOT compatible with the MP6 plugin which changes the backend view.
After deactivating it, the easy galery plugin works.
Still a bit poor performance, but i can insert the galeries.

So far...disappointed
By , for WP 3.5.2

Bought the pro version. Three days later still had not received the link to download. Had to threaten to withdraw the payment and then got my link within minutes. Uploaded as per instructions. Made some test galleries, but cannot see them until they are loaded on the page. Unfortunately, the shortcode button which shows on the edit screen for pages does not work. So, I cannot even load a test gallery to see it. I sent an email off last night, and it is end of business today, no response.
The pro version comes with a badly formatted form that asks for your wp password, presumably so they can go into your account and fix it for you.

I question the wisdom of giving it to them.
