I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. I'm very grateful you have created this plugin.
As every website is unique, there are many ways to build a site using the plugins that are available. I was so happy to find your plugin as it provided the functionality I was looking for. But, in my situation it is more suitable for my users to have the files display rather than download. That is my unique situation. I had already tested the photo album plugins that are available and none were suitable for my requirements.
As you have been asked for this a number of times I think that shows there is a demand for this. Perhaps if you offered it as an option in the admin? Or provided instructions in the support here, so that those of us who want it can implement it ourselves, at our own risk.
Again, my apologies and thank you.
