WordPress Gallery Extra


Examples | Features | Documentation | All Video tutorials | Support

The most intuitive and extensible gallery management tool ever created for WordPress.

A brand new algorithm

There are dozens of WordPress photo galleries out there, but the problem is that they always look the same!
WordPress Gallery Extra uses a brand new algorithm to make much more interesting image grids.

The WordPress Gallery Extra is fully responsive and it adapts to the browser using a nice and smooth animation, even on mobile devices because it can use the hardware acceleration taking advantage of CSS3 properties.

Many issues and no support (even pro version)

I bought the premium version because the gallery looks better then the other gallery plugins out there. BUT there is no support at all. I wrote 2 emails kindly asking for support, then one using the support form and even in the forum (which works poorly by the way). The author doesn't answer at all. All my request I did taking my time. Now it's over a month since my first request and a week after my last one. No response at all. The mentioned issues are: - It's not working with the WP blocks editor - Nether image tags nor category's are recognized - Sometime you have to add images to a gallery two times to have them added for real I tested this on two different WP 5.2 installations. Both are new ones without any other plugin and both cases aren't working. As there is no support at all please be warned that it might stay this way.

This is a premium plugin directly

I understand that this is a premium plugin directly. The platform wordpress.org gives the opportunity to launch a software product, so that users can try it out while developers fix errors thanks to the users, to improve the plugin, so do you have to pay to try this plugin?

Great and stylish gallery

Gallery have really nice hover effects. Really like animation of the image titles. Everything works fine without any problems. I didn’t have any problems with installation or configurations of this gallery. Thank you!
