WP galleries distorted
By ,

Bought plug in and it distorted all WP galleries. Images are all over the posts, absolute mess. Had to deactive ..and all galleries fell back to normal view.

needs to learn customer service
By , for WP 4.1.1

gives intentionally misleading offers and then is rude wen confronted about it. next time you should thank a person that informs you of that you are doing something that will upset customers and cost you sales. you welcome. As for functionality i could not say. to annoyed and deleted it right away.

Support

I am dissatisfaction about support.

The lost manual...
By , for WP 3.9.1

For some reason the most essential instruction is the hardest to find in the install guides and help forum. For any image you wish to use as the lightbox, you must change the Link CSS Class to socialGallery. Then it works like a charm. You can find an input box in your Image Detail popup to enter socialGallery, or you can change the code as follows (simplified to just the essential required code):

<a class="socialGallery" href="Full Size Image URL"><img src="Thumbnail or Custom Size Image URL"></a>

not responsive unless you pay
By , for WP 3.8.1

Got this and then the pro version.
It's buggy in an ipad environment, and does not resolve correctly within the ipad screen.
to get it to work you have to pay more.
not happy. useless support.
does not do what it says on the tin, unless you are prepared to pay for more add ons.

fantastic!

Just Fantastic! :))

Ugly on Mobile
By , for WP 3.6.1

I loved the idea of this plugin when I saw it on some website. After implementing on my site I found it is not responsive for mobile versions. Only an addon is available which is really not the best way to go, the least they could offer is to disable the gallery on mobile phones option. More than 50% viewers these days are from mobile, so I had to take it down.

A great plugin - looks good and works well
By , for WP 3.6

If you're looking for a lightbox with social features you can't go far wrong with Social Gallery. It's intuitive yet powerful, easy to get started with and extensible. A great plugin
