Sadly it wouldn't work for me
By , for WP 4.4.2

I really like this but unfortunately I couldn't get it to work properly on my installation - the title and description popup on hover over the image won't lift fully into view. (I'm using Woo Canvas with Pootlepress Page Builder.) There's obviously some conflict going on somewhere but I couldn't resolve it, so had to uninstall and look for something else.

Bug reported: Slideshow shows full-size images rather than thumbnails
By , for WP 4.4

I'll give 5 stars after bug is fixed:

Do the titles/captions have to be overlay?
By , for WP 4.3

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here, but in my installation the titles and captions by default appear (with a partly transparent background) over the bottom of the image, whenever the image is in portrait orientation. No "simple" setting seems to address this behavior, forcing me to figure out which css properties control the title/caption placement. I think a simple option to select "Titles/Captions overlay image" vs "Titles/Captions below image" (or above image) would be helpful. Photographers don't really want titles to interfere with image viewing. I keep looking for a slideshow that doesn't require much css tweaking and this is my third try, so I may just bite the bullet and dig into it and use it.

Pinterest Weirdness
By ,

I would give this five stars, but I really want people to be able to pin from my slideshows and unfortunately this gallery has the pinterest button show up above the actual image making it close to impossible to pin.

Outside of that it's very easy to use, has all the other controls or options you could possibly need.

Buggy
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is decent but definitely buggy. Adding some HTML broke the plugin. Also, the h2 and h3 headings don't stick. It seems like you get one bit at the apple here.

Didn't work, no hard feelings,now it won't leave
By , for WP 3.6.1

Looks great but it turned out to be incompatible with my theme. Disabled it, deleted it but the plugin created two records that I cannot delete no matter what I do. Didn't work, no hard feelings about that but now it won't leave! Any ideas? Can't find an email to contact the developer.

I love the video sliding
By ,

I love the video sliding on my sidebar.

I have one problem uploading the image for the image sliding, I am unable to upload the image, it says dismiss.
