Can't add more than three galleries
By ,

I don't see anything that says that you can't create more than 3 galleries with the free version so I wasted my time installing then found out. That should be on the first page of the WP site page for this plugin

Breaks constantly
By ,

I paid to upgrade to the Pro version and it was a waste of money. Every time I add, change, or delete a plugin, I have to remember to go to my Gallery Bank plugin and refresh it. Otherwise, the shortcode is all that shows on my gallery page. I don't need another thing to remember to do every time I make a change on my website. Looking for a new gallery...

Seriously... 3 Albums?

Everything in the plugin needs a purchase. Should be more clear about that in the description.

Didn't get as far as viewing demos
By , for WP 4.1.1

Clicked on the first demo link from the Description page but instead of being taken to an actual demo, you're taken to a pricing table where the top figure is £577. I can see there's still a free version but trying to milk someone immediately for money before showing them a demo of the product (which what they've requested by selecting the demo link) is poor. Steering clear.

paid version+no-refund policy= i prefer with donate option!

Hi,

First look quite impressive.. but have to pay ..donate option should be better.. because why.. as first time user..i cant put my price for something i'm not sure how far this gallery is works for me..

anyway.. no refund policy.. it just a nightmare..

One start is to much

Dont waist your time.

Consider Carefully - No Refund Policy
By , for WP 4.1

Would give this 0 stars if possible. Embarrassed that I fell for this. Huge red flag should be the no-refund policy.

Plugin is full of holes. Out of the box it barely works at all, and through configuration one realizes that there are many settings configurations that don't work together. With the amount of time I spent figuring out what works and what doesn't I could have just built my galleries manually.

Easily the worst product I've used with WordPress - wasted almost $50 on the pro version. It's mind boggling that so many people have downloaded this! Definitely the last time I use downloads as a metric for quality...

The only upside is that if you have your heart set on this plugin, I'm happy to send you my Pro version for free! Seriously, get in touch, I have no use for this and have moved onto a much more sophisticated solution that should have been more obvious initially.

I won't suggest specific alternatives but a hint is that they both have satisfaction guarantees. You will notice a lot of these plugins are crippleware, which is fine, as long as you have a chance of refund if you explore the full feature set and are not satisfied.
