I have been looking for a way migrate a personal photo collection from gallery2, and was looking at the standard alternatives, but not happy with any of them. Having just finished a project in WordPress, I decided to look at gallery plugins. I installed and spent significant time with about 10 of them, and WPPA is the clear and definitive winner from almost every standpoint. It is well designed, both technically and aesthetically, and almost totally configurable. I started playing with it using defaults, and quickly found the settings to meet my minimum requirements. I didn't think I would use the rest of the plethora of settings, but as I have become more comfortable, I have started to notice little things here and there that I wish I could change--and, to my surprise, I found that I was able to change every one of them. I then made some albums, uploaded my gallery2 photos, and wrote a query to transfer the photo attributes into WPPA from gallery2. Following a simple reindex on the search configuration page, it works beautifully.
I have to say that this is simply brilliant design and programming. Kudos and many thanks to the author!
I've been using WordPress for over 8 years now, and this is the first time I really feel the NEED to come here and to say THANK YOU JACOB!
Thank yo for your extraordinary work and unconditional hard work!! You are a master and and inspiration for other developers!
I have a month using this plugin, learning all its tricks, consulting documentation, and the SUPPORT section of this plugin. Jacob is there to help all the time (I haven't ask for help yet, but a lot of people do). And I've been analyzing all of this because I'm really considering this plugin for covering a huge web project.
This plugin works great, seems to have no bugs, it's highly customizable, and has a large list of options. It is on my new standard WordPress' plugins selected list.
With the best regards,
Been using WPPA for years now, the support and community around this plugin is great.
Although the numerous options available may seem confusing at first, this is a very complete plugin with many features. And it works great so far.
Thanks and congratulations to Jacob N. Breetvelt for this awesome work!
I am a fan of the wordpress cms and have been using alot of different gallery plugins for wordpress in the past and I must say that this WP Photo Album Plus by Jacob N. Breetvelt is by far the best. Although it have alot of settings, but IMHO the more options one have in life the better.
Thank you again OpaJaap
I even cant believe how come this plugin is free. The author of this plugin deserves a big applause and respect!
Very thougthful and detailed plugins which doesnt have bugs.. Brilliant!
But let me say my problem. I want to disable the users to delete photos. In this way they can upload photos - which i wanted -, but also they can delete photos not only their but also others photos no matter album is public or owned.. How can i disable it?
Thanks again for this great plugin.
Sometimes i'm falling asleep while setting the plugin (there are 770 settings) but it's OK. The result is awesome! Thanks for this plugin and your support!
Hi dear Jacob
Today is the "Thank a WordPress Plugin/Theme Author Day 2016", this is a great opportunity to express my gratitude and thank you for all the work you do. Without your dedication in making WP plugins, WP wouldn't be what it's now.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
Hi, I like your plugin, but I have big problems with lightbox on mobiles. I tested many settings, nothing helped. In the end I tested page http://wppa.opajaap.nl/wppa-typeslidewppa/wppaspec/oc1/cv0/ab8afa5c00a373/pteba2da97d17f on 2 mobiles (Android 5 MIUI Xiaomi and Android 4.4 Huawei Honor). On both mobiles lightbox was always unusable.
This plugin is the best I've seen so far. Does everything it says and more! Highly customizable too! Best of all, it's FREE!
