It’s great to see active development and I can see there has been a substantial rewrite, However, there seems to be issues with the new code that break the WP CLI specifically cron.

If you want to have a gallery and use all your creativity and code the gallery you will do thousands of things with it =).

Can’t add Custom URL

Can’t add Custom URL link to images in gallery.
Still 5* cause I hope you add this feature soon 🙂
Excellent plugin!

Warning!

The developers provided a fix really quickly for an issue I had and now it works like a charm. Thank you!

Only advice to the plugin developers: Please provide an empty folder wp-content/plugins/simple-post-gallery/cache because I got an error message that it was missing.
