We have used the Fancy Gallery already for numerous customer projects. The creation and management of galleries with this plugin is - especially for beginners - very easy. Of course that ensures a successful experience for our customers, too.

The support also leaves nothing to be desired. All our requests were always answered quickly and effectively and helped us to develop an individual slider template for presenting gallery pictures - with excellent results. Thank you so much!

First-class Plugin!

Fancy Gallery is my absolute favorite WordPress gallery plugin. With its clean and intuitive admin screens it's a pleasure to create and manage galleries. It generates clean, optimized HTML code and plays perfectly with WordPress built-in gallery feature.

A selection of fancy templates is already included. And if you want you can choose a different one for every single gallery. Thanks to the detailed documentation, it's foolproof to create your own, individual templates too!

Last but not least I should mention the nice lightbox effect, which works very well on mobile devices and is customizable with just a few clicks.

Schlecht, einfach nur schlecht

Ich habe die Gallery Ende 2014 gekauft. Habe mindestens drei Installtionen gebraucht um es einigermaßen zum Laufen zu bringen.
Jetzt gab es Update, automatisch updaten, das kann man vergessen.
Support ist eine riesengroße NULL!!!
Und so besonders umfangreich ist die Gallery wirklich nicht. Ich habe doch noch das eine oder andere Template erwartet.

Leute, kauf es nicht, es ist das Geld nicht wert!
Auch wenn Herr Hoppe auf seiner Website mit fünf Sternen wirbt. Die sind ganz bestimmt von ihm selbst vergeben worden.

Misleading name, I feel like I was scammed.

This plugin has the same name as Radical's Fancy Gallery. After doing some research online, I found a "Fancy Gallery" demo and I really liked the functionality & look of the product. Unfortunately, I had no idea that there are TWO plugins named "Fancy Gallery" developed for wordpress. "Fancy Gallery" featured by WordPress.org is developed by Dennis Hope, NOT Radycal. Naturally, in WordPress plugin search Dennis' plugin popped up in my search for Fancy Gallery.

It took me a only a few minutes to figure out that this plugin was NOT the plugin that I needed and I contacted Dennis with a polite request to refund my money for this reason. He not only declined but was quite rude with me. I paid $60 for a "premium support" version. How is that for a premium support? :)


Plugin verlangt PHP 5.3
By , for WP 4.0.1

Solange auf dem Server PHP 5.2 läuft, geht gar nichts mit der ehemals schönen Galerie...

No support, even for paid version
By , for WP 4.0

I paid for the pro version because it gave me the capability to save galleries and it worked in jquery tabs, and I was unable to quickly find another gallery plug in that did those things. Plus I like the one large thumbnail option.
Downside: there is NO SUPPORT unless you pay over and above the cost of the paid version. The image sorting in the individual gallery is buggy. Images center align by default and there is no option to align any other way, even by custom css as far as I can tell.
Bottom line: if you can find another plug in that does what you need, skip this one.

No reaction on critical emails to developer
By , for WP 4.0

More than 2 or 3 emails to the developer - also a letter per post - and even no reaction!

Telephone-number with a automatic answering-application. No chance to reach Dennis Hoppe!!!!!!!!

Not really serious. ;-(
