Lite version useless
By ,

The free version is very limited comapared to other plugins and puts pro version ads all over admin interface

Annoying Lite Version & Non Existing Support
By , for WP 4.1

I only bought the plugin because of its super huge, permanently popping up messages to buy the PRO version. After every click the message requester appeared and took me off from working. That as been really annoying.

I only had a gallery with 7 Youtube-videos and the Lite version would have worked probably well, but ok...why not spending some money for a PRO version?...

After buying and testing out, it had problems with my Stellar Theme.
In Masonry and Grid gallery mode the gallery remained blank instead of showing images. After deactivating the Easy Media Gallery Plugin, everything worked fine agin.
Contacted the support who fixed the error within a couple of minutes.
After fixing, he wrote me an email with a link and asked me to review.

Today - after waiting for 2 weeks and writing several mails, I will do!

The support seem to be dead?...lost?...escaped?...
I´ve had lots of troubles with the plugin, did screenshots and screencasts and asked the support several times for help....absolutely nothing happened.
So I had to get and pay someone for fixing this error, because I wasn´t able to fix it by myself.

Did I something wrong?...Has been a support request every 3 days too much?
OK...why not wasting some money with spending it for a buggy plugin without supprt?

Most spam gallery on market !
By , for WP 4.1

Usually I just dont adding 1 star review but this time I am soo pist. When you install this plugin you will see everywhere "Buy BUY BUY BUY this plugin", there is even not possible to add photo coz you see big blinkig red inscription " BUY this plugin" ... WTF?

To author :
Make this plugin best on market and people will buy it by them self , there is no need to add this spam coz you loosing customers !

To users:
If you want to be not in the mood just install this plugin, is best way to be pist all day.

Pro Version worse than free version
By , for WP 4.0.1

I downloaded the free version and it seemed ok, so I thought the pro version would be better.... not so. It does absolutely nothing. The 'add new' page was blank, the 'settings' page wouldn't even display & told me I didn't have permission to access. I logged into my account on their website & clicked manage sites (I stupidly signed up for 3) & again it said I didn't have permission. The answer I got from my help request was just a rehash of the basic download instructions. Money down the drain.....again.
Back to 'Next Gen'.

Garbage tactics...
By , for WP 4.0

You don't get any of the functions except posting single images or video unless you pay money.

Really cheeky way of getting you to download it then having to pay. Don't waste your time.

Full of Ads!

Spam Plugin! Hijacked all with Ads and Unlocks!

A free gallery plugin which wont let you add a gallery without paying? very misleading.

Falsely Advertised as Free
By , for WP 4.0

Annoying to download, install then realise it needs to be upgraded to pro for multiple photos.

Non-existant support. HTTPS problems.
By ,

Installed: Easy Media Gallery Pro 1.5.1.5

I've purchased the pro version and have reached out to support three times over several weeks with absolutely no response. Two big bugs:

1) Under HTTPS, the reference to the plugin's CSS is is wrong causing the screen to display a horizontal gallery in a vertical layout. I've sent the author the code I used to fix it but no response.
2) Under HTTPS, videos played through YouTube do not work. I'm not sure how to fix this one.

I've waited patiently for bug fixes (and there have been 3 updates to the plugin since I purchased it) but no fix for my specific issues.

With the utter lack of support and no communication or acknowledgement, I'm not even going to bother to use this plugin even if the author does fix the issues. It's impossible to put faith into something that basically has zero support.

My advice is to stay clear of this plugin unless the reviews in this forum change drastically for the better.

Very Disappointed in the Pro Version
By ,

Most of the 1 stars in the reviews are about the free version, but people should know there is a big problem with the pro version. I spent hours setting it up on my website - it works fine but the images load a bit slow - then changed hosting and tried to get it working on my new server before pointing my domain over (so accessed through an IP address). It did not work on the new hosting environment, so I emailed support and was told it only works with 'real domains.' This made it useless to me because I will not use it if I can't test how it works on a new hosting environment. Developers should know this plugin will not work on testing /local environments. I asked for a refund and didn't even get the courtesy of a response. So I wasted money and a lot of time on this plugin - if you are a developer, please don't do the same!
