Perfect support for a perfect plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

This plugin is exactly what I was looking for. It has every options that I need and it's high customizable. Highly reccomended!

I had a problem with a previous version of WP and I recieved support almost istantly on how to fix it. Perfect.

Good plugin
By , for WP 4.4.1

I'd like to see multi column display with document descriptions. If you turn on document descriptions you get a single column of documents with descriptions to the side. It's pretty ugly and pretty useless when turning on document descriptions.

Surprising that images get all the attention

Well Done, and continues to improve.

Useful plugin for displaying publications
By , for WP 4.4

Document Gallery is a useful plugin for the function it performs. I looked and did not find anything else as useful for displaying a document library.

I did require support for the plugin when I upgraded and it was extremely prompt and helpful.

I have 2 qualms with the plugin, neither of which are a deal-breaker for me.

1) The documentation could be more clear. I couldn't figure out how to use the media category to display posts but using the support forum I discovered that along with category=xyz I also have to include localpost=false or else no documents will appear. Fine, but where is the localpost parameter discussed?

2) It would be nice if the feature to create a document gallery and insert it to the page also had something in the settings that would list the vraious document galleries and their contents. In other words, give us a way to see our catalog of galleries. This is a minor thing and maybe not something that could be done within the way the plugin works and I could easily live without it.

All in all, I'm very happy to have found this plugin. Our organization publishes a monthly magazine and we like to put past issues on the site by year. Document Gallery is handling this nicely for us.

Great plugin!

Great plugin, does what it says! I appreciate the fact that it works without Ghostscript or Imagick, but I did install Ghostscript on my server (alone, without Imagick) and it is awesome to have those generated PDF thumbnails! I also love that it works with Media Library Assistant custom attachment categories. A very well-thought-out plugin!

Just what I was looking for

I've been trying to find a plugin with these features for a while and thankfully finally found this! :-D

One of the nicest ways to present documents
By , for WP 4.3.1

Presenting your PDFs with a thumbnail preview is so much better than a document icon!

Just what we needed

This plugin was exactly what we needed to have a visual gallery of resources. Thanks!!

NICE ONE!

Useful, esay to install. Would be nice having a list of possible short cuts.

Great Plugin!

The plugin gives great results and has many ways to use it. It can mimic an image gallery with the same kind of setup. I had one confusion when using with categories. I didn't realize that if you specified a category it still choose the items from the list of attached documents. If you want it to use all documents you can specify id=-1 in the shortcode arguments.

The thumbnail creation is great and fast and the result looks really good.

And the support is excellent!
