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.

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...
