Keeps on working

This plugin doesn't do much but what it does do, it does well. If you want a simple image slideshow, this will work for you. I've been using it for years and it just keeps chugging away. Don't let the fact it hasn't been updated for a long time scare you from trying it.

Okay this a great plugin!

If you have a plugin with JQuery you have to do a bit of work, but it does work! I went through numerous plugins to find one that was reliable and actually did what it said!

For those saying it doesn't work with current version of wordpress - here is the proof that it does http://www.momijiinc.com/

No flash, no shockwave, it works that is that!

Conflicts with almost everything else you've already installed.

Does Not Work With 3.5.1

Hoping for an update to this plugin. I've used it for years, but it no longer works with 3.5.1. :(

Worked Great Until WP 3.5.1 Upgrade
By , for WP 3.5.1

Worked fine until I upgraded to 3.5.1 then all of my widgets locked, my page link changes could not be made, the media area became inactive and many other components to WP became inactive.

Terribly developed
By , for WP 3.5

The scripts aren't NOT sandboxed for the admin panel.
This makes the plugin conflict with a ton of other plugin's scripts when it could be self-contained errors.

With WP 5.5 this plugin literally breaks all the admin javascript functions.

doesn't display images, breaks layout in 3.5.0
By , for WP 3.5

The plugin doesn't display the images, no matter the format I give the directory they are to be found in. It would be nice to at lease be able to browse to the desired directory.

More importantly, the plugin breaks my layout by pushin my site footer way dwonwards for no apparent reason.

Blocks all the other widgets
By , for WP 3.5

Blocks all the other widgets, and off course does not work.

Broken - Does not work with WordPress 3.5
By , for WP 3.5

After installing WordPress 3.5 my widgets in the back-end would not collapse. I removed the plug-in and now the site went back to normal. I have not received any responses to the many threads I have posted regarding this issue. I was in hopes the creator would have updated his plug-in with WordPress 3.5 but he had apparently has moved on and abandoned this widget. If anyone knows a great alternative, please let me know. I use this for 4 sites and am extremely disappointed. I know in the future I will have to choose plug-ins from more reliable sources.

The creator of this plug-in's rating is declining: 0 of 6 support threads in the last two months have been resolved.
