It is not recommended. Too bad!
By , for WP 4.1

Too bad! Better not try, because the settings are almost no free version. Worst of plug-ins, PRO version has no desire to buy. Rated 1 out of 5.

Need a really good work to be a good plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

Really you think this will work?

Line 31 - gallery-template.php
$count_all_albums = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM wp_posts WHERE 1=1 AND wp_posts.post_type = 'gallery' AND (wp_posts.post_status = 'publish')" );

Did you think that someone could name his prefix in a different way that "wp_"?

This looks like a newbie plugin be carefull to install it, it could break your hole theme.

Upgrade to PRO!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Upgrade to PRO! Did I mention UPGRADE TO PRO? If not, UPGRADE TO PRO.
Ok, besides being pummelled with that everywhere you look, there is no obvious way that I see to actually create a new gallery. Funny since the name of the plugin is "gallery".
Un-installed. Next....

WARNING! DO NOT DOWNLOAD V.4.2.7
By , for WP 4.1

After installing 4.2.7 on my theme it worked fine. But after 1 hour my complete theme was gone. I checked in the theme settings and it said the theme was broken. First I thought it was just unlucky and I screwed up myself. The wole theme folder, inclusing my custom CSS was gone.

Today, 2 days later I made another WP site (with a complete other theme) and once again installed this plugin. After about 5 minutes it screwed up my theme again... including the custom CSS.

This plugin always worked until V.4.2.7
Couple hours of work is gone and I hope it will get fixed soon!

Not-so-helpful support
By , for WP 4.0.1

Received a reply to my support request three days after I had submitted my ticket. Usual issue, gallery won't work on non-standard templates. I had already resolved the issue by just switching to a NEXTgen gallery.

When the reply came, it had just enough condescension in it ('If you have programming skills, then you will cope with this modification easily') to motivate me to post this review.

Too Much!!!

Heart Broken to see if such application exists!

Took down my site
By , for WP 4.0

I installed the base gallery, upgraded to pro, and it took down our client's site with errors while validating my pro code. I installed a trial code to test pagination, so I didn't get far enough into the plug-in to spend/lose money, but this plug-in is a no-go.

Totally inadequate
By , for WP 4.0

Hey, I want to get rich too, but honestly? This is less than bare bones. Sorry whoever....

unable to use files already in Media Library
By , for WP 3.9.2

title says everything: unable to use files already in Media Library

.. pretty basic and expected functionality

Terrible
By , for WP 3.9.1

Save your sanity and do not try this plug-in. It is a very frustrating undertaking and the support documentation is very poor.
