Lightbox feature doesn't work
By , for WP 3.9

The gallery itself was easy to setup. Once I created the gallery, I added the shortcode to my main galleries page -- looked great. When I click on the individual gallery link, it takes me to the gallery page that breaks my theme's default template file. Plus, the lightbox feature doesn't work. It just links you to the image file itself.

Have to re-upload images, not really best practices is it.

No response from BestWebSoft

I paid $10 for the Pro version.
The license is bound to the domain.
I developed my site on a temporary domain and Gallery Pro worked ok.
After moving the site to the final domain, I got a warning that the Gallery Pro license was invalid and the plugin would be deactivated within 24 hours.
I tried to login to developer's site to move license but could not get any response from BestWebSoft.
Gave up in disgust.

Easy to use and great support
By , for WP 3.8.1

I just wanted a simple, clean, and non-complicated gallery plug-in. This fit very nicely, has decent customization, and the author team is quick to get back with answers to my questions. My only gripe (unless I missed it) is to be able to add to a gallery from my existing content rather than uploading again. Future release?

Easy and big gallery
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is the best gallery-plugin I ever used. Easy to use and many functions!

Not responsive - very limited use
By , for WP 3.8.1

It uses an old version of Fancybox for viewing enlargements that makes it pretty unusable on mobile devices.

Need to go Pro for full functionality
By ,

I was mislead to believing I could take advantage of all functionality this plugin has to offer. Unfortunately, I needed to "go pro" before I could take full functionality. As a fellow developer, I understand we have to make money somehow, but I dont like to be mislead/lied to.

Bravo!
