Doesn't work and not support non-existent
By , for WP 4.2.2

Product will not work does not allow me to do anything despite putting in the required flickr keys. Posted for help but that's non-existent shame as looks like it would be perfect for what I require oh well.

Impossible to find way to publish Album
By , for WP 4.1

Too complicated! You couldn't do a simple thing for everyone? I lost some time without being able to publish an album.

Doesn't work. Developer not responding on forums.
By ,

I encountered a problem with not being able to create new galleries. The forum shows other people listing the same problem, but no response from the developer. Not a good plugin at all!

Callback URL doesn't work
By , for WP 3.8.1

There is a forum post regarding this issue with a fix suggested by the plugin author.
Unfortunately it didn't work for me though I pasted the callback URL from my WordPress admin page. I then tried to add a comment to this forum post to ask if this should work pretty much instantly after I save my changes in Flickr or if it needs some time, but I couldn't even sign in to his site to make a comment. Suposedly you can sign in using your Google credentials but when I try that I get an error message saying no account can be found.
In short, way too much trouble to go through when there are other plugins that do the same thing.

Slowed down the blogs terribly
By , for WP 3.8

The plugin technically "works", but I found that it slowed down the blog pages so bad that they were unusable.

Multiple errors
By , for WP 3.8

Multiple errors with TwentyFourteen.

bugs in lightbox
By , for WP 3.6.1

Colorbox have a bug: half sized images in the ligtbox!

Insufficient Privileges to Add New Gallery
By , for WP 3.6

Try to Add a new Gallery, but get "Insufficient Privileges to Add New Gallery".
Updated to 3.3.6 per instructions in the support forums, but that did not fix the problem.
Other people appear to be having this issue too. We are told to "update to 3.3.6" (which is available on GitHub, not WordPress.org), but this does not fix the problem.

Don't Waste your Time
By ,

I get multiple errors with this plugin. Can't format, can't control content... Don't waste your time...

Full menu not loading in Admin
By , for WP 3.4.2

I agree with Roger and Mrwweb's findings.
This plugin would be great if it worked. I have spent an hour loading and unloading it from WP and Authors home page, none of them work.
'Add new' and 'Edit' do not display in the admin panel. It does not display columns in IE9 or IE10 which means thousands of people will view it badly.
Why the hell I'm even rating this I don't know, I guess I'm angry at the waste of time.
Get a new career or get this sorted please. I would have considered paying for this one had it worked :(
