Navigation Issues on Mobile Devices?
By , for WP 3.5.1

Hi,

The navigation buttons on the free version of the gallery don't work on iPhone. How can I get this to work? I've been looking in the javascript files and can't seem to see any functionality for the use of mobile devices.

Hope you can help!

cannot get fancybox to work :(

Love this plugin EXCEPT cannot get fancybox to work and so I give only 1 star. I posted a support question but it looks like support does not exist which is very disappointing.

Support not good
By , for WP 3.5.2

Can't get an answer after a week of waiting, complaining here seems to be the only hope.
Gallery displays thumbs on the page perfect in Chrome, Firefox and Safari. But, in IE8 the thumbs are crammed in a single row. I have the row setting at 0 but IE8 puts them all in the first row, if I change to say 2, IE8 displays 2 per row but they are still the same width as they were when they were a single row and look stupid.

Great Plugin, Easy to Deploy, Easy to Train Usage
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin is exactly the simple deployment I was looking for. It easily integrates within custom themes. I am most impressed with the ease of use from the end users side of things. I will not need to spend a lot of extra time training my clients to properly utilize the plugin.

Thanks!

Works, but details are off
By , for WP 3.5.1

Unfortunately the plugin's results are rather unprofessional looking. Details that need to be tightened:

Gallery Page
1. The photos aren't centered within their respective containing boxes (white bg with gray outline). Just a little css would fix this.
2. "Number of images in the row" setting-- why not allow for the row to go the full width of its container?
3. Why isn't there padding between the gallery and the #content div?
.gallery_box_single {margin: 10px;}--hello?

Lightbox display:
4. The box for label (e.g., "Image 1 / 4") is wider than the photo.

Edit Gallery (admin page, post.php)
5. Why include the Tiny MCE editor for page--esp. since you can include the gallery on a page with a shortcode)? At very least place it lower down and get rid of media upload button--confusing for people (e.g., clients). Please look here.

It would be easy enough to fix these, but you'd have to do it each time the plugin was updated.
