Excellent. I use this plugin a lot as a carousel solution across a number of sites as it's very easy to configure and shows a preview before publishing. Support has been fantastic and v. fast through live chat! Highly recommended.
27. November 2021
They forgot to mention, that, the free plugin is missing some basic functionality like clicking on the image to enlarge it. You can even configure it at image level, but it will not save the option. I thought it is broken, but after looking more into settings, I found out that image enlargement or linking is only available in the pro version. Problem is, I worked a few good hours to build some galeries only to discover I have to delete this piece of crap and start working all over again with some standard gallery or any other decent plugin.
21. November 2021
I just installed the plugin and it works. The only thing is that the dots that show the present slide appear distorted. I hope you can fix it
4. November 2021
Great plugin. Completely solves our tasks. The support team works great. They wrote how to solve the problem (it arose through no fault of the developer), made a video about it, and then fixed everything themselves. Now we bought a version for a year. After the end of the year we will buy for all the time
