Very happy with supsystic

I'm using several plugins from supsystic, lightbox being one I use more often. It's working beautifully, playing nice with other plugins, and has an easy interface. So far client and I are both happy campers with supsystic!

Iuse the plugin with WordPress 4.3.1, it is not working at all like other users say. And there is no answer in the support forum. (?)

Does the job simply and well
