Reviews

Why so many one stars?

f4tal1st

I don't get it, why so many people around gave one star to this plugin?

I downloaded it, made custom NextGen Gallery, create custom field in ACF, made proper type of this field, create personal "single-" template for my custom post type, put a proper PHP in it and everything works fine! No problem at all! I am absolutely noob and don't know what templates & PHP are and how they works, but I spend two hours to learn a little and now everything works as I want.

If you are not patient or don't want to keep studying or spend a little free time to understand how WordPress is working - stay away from this plugin and don't waste your onestars.

In my case everything works. Thank you, developers! ^^
