works great and cant fault it. i use it slightly differently as I run a small camera club and use this plugin to allow our members to upload the monthly competition images to the website and i can then just download the lot off the website in one hit rather than 40 emails. support is 5*+ any issues i have had have been sorted quickly. highly recommend this plugin

Some time ago I used the free version and it was not easy to get it to spread across the page. I have an old site using MyMag as a theme. I decided to try the pro version and it is so much better. I am not very experienced with websites but found that I could use it without too much difficulty. I did ask a dumb question but the answer was quick, polite and very easy to apply. I give the 5 out of 5 for their standard of support as well as the product.

After multiple attempts and even trying things "Content Gallery support" suggested we have not been able to get this plugin to work on a consistent basis. Instead, we get messages from customers telling us "they can't vote" or that it will only let them vote one per day. What makes it worse is I was unable to locate help or descriptions for many of the settings in the app. At one point I was told to "deactivate “Allow vote out of gallery” and the complaints might disappear. My first question is where is the description of what this setting even means? The only instructions I could find were the generic ones here on the WordPress side. Sadly all they do is just list "options" and even the FAQ is vague and doesn't come close to explaining what some settings mean. My second question is, why do you have this setting if it stops people from being able to vote? BTW, we did pay for the pro version but I would not recommend.

Im very pleased with the style and all the possibilities to use the plugin. I bought the Pro version. Very quick support. I had a question to support while configuring, the answer came within hours and I could make the change to get the result I wanted.

Benutze dieses Plugin um auf meiner Webseite für Fotografie eigene Fotowettbewerbe durchzuführen. Das geht sehr einfach und man hat viele Optionen, den Fotowettbewerb (Contest) nach seinen Vorstellungen einzurichten. Wie ich mitbekommen habe, wird das Plugin laufend weiter entwickelt, aber es ist schon jetzt sehr gut einsetzbar und darüber hinaus auch das einzige Plugin in dieser Art! Ein besonderes Lob gilt dem sehr schnellem und top-engagiertem Support! Eine ganz klare Empfehlung, auch für die PRO-Version, und besten Dank dafür!
