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

A few issues...
By , for WP 3.5.2

Installed the lite version to try.

1. Doesn't save FB App ID
2. Social Gallery logo in the free version is a bit 'in your face'. I understand the need to encourage folks to upgrade but still.... make it a bit more subtle!

3. When I click on my social share buttons at the top of my pages, I get a quick view of this plugin appearing. Say I want to share my page to Twitter. I click on the Twitter share button but I get to see the a snippet of this plugin's lightbox appear... before it vanishes and with no share to Twitter. I click on the Twitter button a 2nd time, then it share to Twitter.

4. Clicking on my share Email button, doesn't work at all. I get an error saying "You must specify an "href" attribute to the iframe."
Deactivate this plugin and my social share buttons work perfectly and so it is this plugin which is causing problems.

EDIT: In view of the very positive reply from the plugin author, I have changed the rating to 5.

Cracking little plugin :)

With epicplugins behind it this plugin will only get better!!

No idea how to work
By , for WP 3.5.2

When I download this plugin all I can see is the settings option, but there are no instructions as to how it actually functions within posts. Or how to use it after going through the settings process. I understand not wanting to have a forum for people who don't pay for the product, but I'd appreciate basic, accessible instructions. Please help!

I installed the light version and all I can see is how to upgrade to the Paid version. I can't add categories
