Reviews

Great Plugin

I like the Plugin. Can't get the Pagination to work properly and asked for assistance. I received the requested assistance and they went above and beyond. My issues were self-inflicted and had nothing to do with this great Plugin. The Gallery Options are outstanding.

Best of its kind so far!

I've struggled to find a really good frontend image to gallery uploader for site members for a long time now. I've tried and tested almost anything out there, but none of them did the job as well as I wanted. Even though this is a young plugin with very few installs, it does the job perfectly and better than most. Great features and options! I predict a great future for this plugin! Only one minor issue: It did not automatically create an upload folder, which gave an error upon activation as it could not find the index.php. It is an easy fix, as you only have add the folder yourself in the file manager.
