Works beautifully!
By , for WP 4.4

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I use WordPress 4.4 and after several weeks of searching, trying, & throwing money at other plugins (that didn't do what I wanted them to), I found yours. While it isn't listed as working with 4.4, I took a chance and am THRILLED that it does!! I did a test page using the Masonry Gallery on my laptop, my iPad mini & my iPhone each one of them worked great. I'm close to tears I'm so happy right now. I've been using WP for years and your plugin is the best way to display my art that I've EVER found....and it works inside the normal WP media gallery.

I'm an artist and my work varies greatly in size, everything from 2" x 3" to several feet long (or wide). Trying to find a gallery that properly displays all those sizes without oddly cropping the thumbnails or distorting the images seemed impossible. In the last 7 days I spent $65 on plugins that ended up not doing what I wanted (but I had to pay to properly see all the options to figure that out). Your "Masonry" gallery is exactly what I needed AND you had the good sense to allow the titles to be viewed underneath each image.

Please tell me that you are going to continue with updates for this?!?! As soon as my bank account replenishes in a week or so, you're getting a nice donation for this. I will be plastering this plugin's name & link all over my website & social media accounts. Thank you!!!

Simple to Set-up, Looks Great on the site

I like how the slider can even be navigated with touch events, instead of just using the forward and back buttons.

Thanks Chris,

Easy to use within the media gallery. Thanks!

Extends Native Gallery - awesome!
By , for WP 4.2.2

Easy to install, no annoying extra admin section for making a separate gallery, will take an existing gallery and make it look ace, you can customise the columns and size of thumbs.

I don't really mind that it makes a multitude of different size copies of the image, WordPress makes enough junk this way as it is. Really handy.

Perfect Gallery Plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

A simple plugin that expands your native WordPress media gallery features. For those who just need a simple, attractive means of displaying high quality photos, this works simply and easily. Had no issues with my version of WordPress, but I would advise dude to update it anyway.

Doesn't work

Absolutely superb!

I have been looking for a plugin that would turn native WP Galleries in to a responsive Mansonry layout and this did the job. Thanks to the Dev Team

Easy and Nice

Very easy to install and it works perfect from the first moment. Thank you for this nice plugin!

Simple, natively integrated concept that just works
By , for WP 4.0.1

After trying 4 other plugins to create a simple carousel, each of which had their own issues (using Flash, shortcodes not working, not displaying content, labor-intensive to customize etc.), this one was my savior. It just works, looks pretty darn good, and is easy to both set up and edit for non-programmers and relative WP newbies like me.

My only complaint is that the implementation instructions could be better. I implemented the carousel on the page itself, by using the "Insert Media" option, and then selecting "Insert Gallery". From there you can customize the options. If you want to link the images to a page, you need to set this up in the WordPress Media Library by editing the actual uploaded images. There is an option "Link to" under each image in editing mode.

Thank you!
