Best You Can Get, Just Short of Perfect
By , for WP 4.0

After scouring the Internet for a nice modal pop-up plugin that would satisfy my rather complex needs of offering a clickable pop-up to display a flip-book somewhat-like Amazon's Look-Inside function, I stumbled upon this plugin by a developer I have actually met at a Montreal WordPress meetup.

The plugin by far surpassed the dozen or so other similar plugins I tried, which all seemed very convoluted, and after a very bit of struggling I got my functionality working with this plugin.

The variety of options, good support, and the fact that it just works all point to a high rating.

The only small reasons I could not give it 5 stars is that I feel it lacks a bit of polish around its configuration settings, and the fact that some things have to be done manually, like adding scripts for the click to open functionality.

I must say I think Yannick is only a few tweaks away from getting a 5 stars out of me so hope he continues to push what this plugin can do as it seems to be fulfilling a good niche.

Merci pour le bon travail!

Straightforward, not too many options though, but I like it well enough. A bit quirky -- after closing-out the modal dialog, webpage jumps to bottom -- but it works just fine otherwise.

This is really a three-star effort, but deserves four because, relatively speaking, modal dialog/overlay window plugins are not that plentiful and this one simply works -- and works simply -- without fuss or hassle. :-)
