Free version is just a demo for paid version
By , for WP 4.1

The free version only allows you to upload 3 galleries. As far as I can tell, that's not a "free version", that's a demo.

Free version is useless

Pro version might be nice, but there are a lot of other plugins that do more for free.

Not really free
By ,

There is very little functionality (only three galleries) for the free version. This is more of a demo, not a free plugin.

Pro Version Doesn't Work
By , for WP 4.1

If I could give this 0 stars, I would, simply for the fact that Tech Banker refuse to support the Pro version.

They will not acknowledge support emails or posts in their own forum after a problem with their licensing system rendered the plugin useless. In 2 days, I have had 1 reply which didn't come close to solving the issue, and since then nothing.

It is the worst support of any commercial plugin I've ever known.

I've asked for a refund, but no doubt they'll ignore that as well. Avoid these clowns and choose another gallery.

basically it is not free

All features arein paid version. Free gallery is really ugly.
Spend my time

Only 3 galleries in free version!
By , for WP 4.1

Tell us up front that the freee version only allows 3 galleries - what a waste of my time! Really unprofessional!

Alternative text available only in paid version, big minus from me and anyone who takes SEO seriously...
Choppy animations, storing images outside media library... should I go any further, you ain't getting a cent from me.
Oh yeah one more thing, you get the same "gallery" if you people upload images to your media library, install Simple lightbox plugin, and then put your pictures where you want them, and it works better than this sorry excuse for a plugin...

Unable to nest albums
By , for WP 4.0

Great looking plugin, but the inability to nest or group albums makes it essentially useless for all but the simplest applications. Waste of money to upgrade to premium unless you want to have one gigantic list of galleries in album view.

Doesn't Work
By , for WP 4.0

I'm glad this plugin was free, because it doesn't work at all. I added an album, following their instructions exactly. The album shows on the back end. On the front end, it just displays thumbnails of every image in the media library.

What a waste of time. Gallery Bank is useless. The best thing is does is nag you to upgrade at every chance.

Didn't Work, Broke My Site
By ,

The trial version of the plugin worked fine on my site, so I decided to purchase the full version. Once installed, it wasn't working so I contacted the company. They said they'd fix it for me if I gave them login credentials. Big mistake! They fixed their plugin but left my site with major, major problems. I contacted them and asked if they would please reverse whatever they did. No response after over 36 hours. I finally contacted my host - long story short, they had to take my site offline to fix what the customer support person for Gallery Bank screwed up. Gallery bank offers NO REFUNDS! If a company can't stand by their product enough to offer a refund, then it must not be a very good product. Buyer beware!
