Cannot be combined with jetpack tiled gallery layouts
By , for WP 4.2.2

--edit--
After some clarification from the plugin author I modified this comment and the rating to go from 2 to 4 stars. Probably works well but I was unaware it cannot be used at the same time as Jetpack tiled gallery layouts.

Breaks the front end part of the jetpack tiled galleries. Was not able to verify the rest of the functionality of this plugin.

Clean Design + Code + Integration
By , for WP 4.1.1

I really like how this plugin extends the default WP [gallery] shortcode and adds options in the settings to integrate the WP default ThickBox.js. In addition, he provides basic list of strong alternative LightBox scripts that you can download and install.

Does exactly what it says and then more !

Great stuff, thank you - i wish i discovered it earlier.
Are you planning to add options for further customizing / removing classes (ie. column count etc) ? Even if not - it's still a must have.

Link pdfs easily

Very easy way to link an image in a gallery to a pdf.

Can't find how to add gallery! Looked for the support forum, still no info. Will try to search around again.

WOW
By , for WP 3.9.1

For our clients we needed to be able to use the filenames as the caption of pictures in our private galleries... Apparently NO ONE in the history of the internet has ever thought of this... But Cleaner Gallery made it happen with it's "Use Title if No Caption is Present" option. It would have been nice if there was an explanation of how to install those other gallery scripts that it's compatible with, but after an hour or two of messing around I figured it out. THANK YOU!

Link thumbnails to actual full image
By , for WP 3.9.1

I needed to link thumbnails to the actual full size image and this finally helped me do that.

Nice clean HTML5 code, thanks.

Just a small bug:
When first saving the settings neither 'Image Caption' nor 'Script and Style' settings were checked. I set my defaults for linking etc and saved, but on refresh the Image Caption and Script and Settings checkboxes had become ticked by themselves.

And some feedback:
What would be really useful would be the option to apply the link to the caption as well as the image. I often need to float captions over clickable images, or at least have them clickable underneath the image, so this option would be the cherry on the top of a great plugin for me.

Thanks.
