    Cannot get any response to support requests. Support forum appears to be closed and email are unanswered.

    We had been looking for a plugin with this functionality for a while until we found this one. The plugin is of great quality and is very well documented, thus a pleasure to work with. But what really stands out is the customer support. We had some kinks that needed to be worked out and the author of the plugin was very helpful and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the plugin! Easy 5/5

    Absolutely delighted with this plugin. I was initially getting nowhere with it, but suddenly it all clicked and I was able to configure and style my site exactly the way I wanted it. There was a feature which I couldn’t implement, but when I contacted the developer, he produced a new version of the plugin within hours, including the feature I’d requested. I’m very impressed by the commitment of Ciprian to keep developing this plugin further. It does exactly what I need and I’m confident that if I encounter any problems, they’ll be resolved quickly. It’s a pity that I can’t give more than 5 stars.

    Great plug-in. Does just what I need and support from the developer has been outstanding so far!

    Would not recommend for anyone looking to create a gallery for more than a dozen photos. Money best spent anywhere else

    The plugin is fantastic – easy to use gallery plugin for WordPress. I’m most impressed at the responsiveness from the developer, and their help in resolving issues and adding features. If they keep up the pace of improvements I can quickly see this becoming an essential plugin for anyone wanting to host a public photo gallery on WordPress. Only thing I would love to see is deeper Buddypress integration in the future. 5 stars.

    The customer support I’m receiving as i type this is phenomenal, and literally the best, most thorough and helpful I’ve ever experienced. Chip has spent several hours with me personally, helping me with issues. Seriously the best ive ever experienced.

    doesnt explain that yeah its a wp plugin but its standalone and dont work with membership addons due to having to alter membership ranks to use, and you have to use his profile for users not wp, bbpress, nor buddypress. his description for product needs to fully explain what this isnt, not a mocking stuff up to make a sell.

    I could never really get it to work, after a while I moved on.

    I had to choose one main reason for my (5 *) rating but in reality there are a number of reasons that equally contributed to this top rating, viz, Design Quality, Code Quality, Customizability and Support. This is a feature rich plugin that has been well designed and executed. All in all, an excellent product delivering great value for the license fee .
    It pays dividends to read the documentation thoroughly and then explore all the features of the plugin.

    This is the best gallery with user profile integration, without a doubt. Dozens of features that with a bit of own code could make any website unique! I like the plugin and I still haven’t found another as complete as this one, it’s very well tought and it has a lot more space for improvement to turn it into even a more powerful gallery! 5*
    As for the support, it’s the main reason a leave my 5 star rating. Top Customer Support.
    Thank You.
