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.
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.
Well Done, and continues to improve.
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, 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!
I've been trying to find a plugin with these features for a while and thankfully finally found this! :-D
Presenting your PDFs with a thumbnail preview is so much better than a document icon!
This plugin was exactly what we needed to have a visual gallery of resources. Thanks!!
Useful, esay to install. Would be nice having a list of possible short cuts.
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!
