• This plugin is nice and all…it has a lot of options, but it would be nice to have a step by step instruction manual on how to set it up. I don’t have time to sit through hours of setting up a plugin that’s supposed to be simple…and no, I don’t have time to go back and forth on a support forum asking for help. I deleted this plugin because it was way too complicated to figure out. If I can’t figure out how to work a plugin within the first five to ten minutes, I pull it from my site. This plugin is perfect, however, for the tech-savvy, expert user. So if you are an expert WordPress user, this one is perfect for you. However, I am about intermediate in WordPress use and don’t have time to go through a whole class on how to use the plugin. Good luck.

    Sorry to hear this. Which module were you trying to use? I know you have mentioned “step by step instruction manual on how to set it up”, but my documentation is extensive, complete with screenshots. I would love to get your inputs on what instructions you thought were missing, because I have had multiple beginners (not intermediate users) use it without issues too.

    Hi,
    I wanted to follow up on this. I am guessing based on another review you left for a different plugin that you wanted to make Photonic work for Flickr.

    If so, may I ask what you found complicated or lacking in an instruction manual? For reference, this is the starting point for using Photonic with Flickr. Are you looking for more generic / specific documentation?

    I am obsessive about documenting things, so I am curious as to whether you weren’t able to find the documentation, or if the documentation was too overwhelming, or if you found the documentation lacking. All basic steps and documentation links are available when you click on the Photonic → Getting Started menu item on your dashboard, and creating a gallery using the “Add / Edit Photonic Gallery” is really as easy as it gets.

    I was particularly interested in this requirement you stated for the other plugin:

    user clicks on the thumbnail for a larger version and it opens up in Flickr…I don’t know if that’s possible, but that’s what I’m looking for

    This is something that is offered quite extensively in Photonic – there are in fact 13 supported scripts for this!

    Only in rare cases have I had a reviewer leaving a 1-star review engage in a conversation or provide actionable feedback, so it would be great if this was an exception!
