Nice!Clean! … But no pagination and no support ((

needs improvements

looks good but misses multiple post type query, just like any other grid plugin. Also misses the categories tag, only contains “view all”.

Visually fits perfectly in my theme

I searched for a long time a plugin like this because it visually it fits perfectly in my theme. However, it needs a bit of work and also a bit of support. Since I’m an amateur, I’ve spent 3 weeks learning how to edit a plugin in order to fix issues with margins and grey lines covering the thumbnails.
