Needs Minified JS and CSS Code
By , for WP 3.8

Is this plugin even supported anymore?

Part of the problem with Jetpack and so many other plugins is that the code is not minified for faster loading. It is easy to do and I see no reason not to have a full version of the script and .min.js and .min.css versions that the php uses by default, so that people do not have to go in and minify everything with each update. I will bump up the rating to 5 stars if the mini versions of the JS and CSS files are ever included and enqueued by default. Aside from that it seems fine.

Exactly What I Needed! Thank You!

After NGgallery blew up their plugin I was looking for a way to add decent viewing function for native WordPress galleries. I tried several jquery options but none them delivered exactly what I needed without a lot of plugin / css hacking.

Your plugin adds great functionality without the huge overload of Jetpack. Love it! Thank you!

Just what you need

I wanted a plugin that would work with existing photos galleries and allow visitors to go from photos to photos without any opening/closing.

This plugin is doing just that and the light box effect is perfect for a nice viewing experience.

Install the plugin and any galleries you already had will start showing as slideshow.

I've had a plugin incompatability with all lightboxes (really tried like 25) but this works great! I'm very happy, thanks. and yes, it's the most easy plugin ever.

Really awesome solution, only 1 reservation.

Works just like the jetpack carousel. My only suggestion would be to have comments as an option. I have a heard enough time getting clients to deal with comment moderation, and I really don't need another thing for them to manage.

Other than that I love this plugin!

A Simple Yet Elegant Slideshow
By , for WP 3.5.1

I love the option of using and recommending this easy gallery / slideshow plugin without having to alway install JetPack. It was much needed. Especially since WordPress finally made the default gallery feature more user-friendly in 3.5.

Awesome without jetpack!

Jetpack plugin takes lot of server memory, so this is solution if you need only Carousel gallery :-).
