Terrible
By , for WP 3.9.1

Save your sanity and do not try this plug-in. It is a very frustrating undertaking and the support documentation is very poor.

Lightbox feature doesn't work
By , for WP 3.9

The gallery itself was easy to setup. Once I created the gallery, I added the shortcode to my main galleries page -- looked great. When I click on the individual gallery link, it takes me to the gallery page that breaks my theme's default template file. Plus, the lightbox feature doesn't work. It just links you to the image file itself.

No response from BestWebSoft
By , for WP 3.9

I paid $10 for the Pro version.
The license is bound to the domain.
I developed my site on a temporary domain and Gallery Pro worked ok.
After moving the site to the final domain, I got a warning that the Gallery Pro license was invalid and the plugin would be deactivated within 24 hours.
I tried to login to developer's site to move license but could not get any response from BestWebSoft.
Gave up in disgust.

Not responsive - very limited use
By , for WP 3.8.1

It uses an old version of Fancybox for viewing enlargements that makes it pretty unusable on mobile devices.

Only the code: [gallery link="file" ids="739,735,728"]

is visible.

Doesn't work as it should
By , for WP 3.5.1

It kinda works, but very badly and stupidly.

Te see the gallery you have to click on the "see more" link. I don't see why you couldn't click on the gallery thumbnail itself.

Then when the gallery opens it shifts the page to the left side of the screen (it should be centered). the header and footer stay centered.

And as a final bonus, clicking on any of the images in the gallery does nothing, even though the hand mouse icon appears.
Also this is supposed to launch in a lightbox, i ain't seen none of that.

This is using the Wisdom of Life theme and the 4.0.7 version of the plugin.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.7.1

Instructions are very badly written. Awkward to use. Plugin doesn't display galleries or photos on my theme, which is a slight variation on 2010. So many problems that I can't be bothered to take the time to look for fixes. And the positive reviews look like fakes.

cannot get fancybox to work :(
By , for WP 3.5.2

Love this plugin EXCEPT cannot get fancybox to work and so I give only 1 star. I posted a support question but it looks like support does not exist which is very disappointing.

Support not good
By , for WP 3.5.2

Can't get an answer after a week of waiting, complaining here seems to be the only hope.
Gallery displays thumbs on the page perfect in Chrome, Firefox and Safari. But, in IE8 the thumbs are crammed in a single row. I have the row setting at 0 but IE8 puts them all in the first row, if I change to say 2, IE8 displays 2 per row but they are still the same width as they were when they were a single row and look stupid.
