Latest reviews

This was my first upgrade in about a year as I just now renewed my license (only $10 for another year!). There was a slight bug that sonnb fixed in less then 12 hours. The new version rocks and my users love it! Thanks for an awesome add-on!!
I had a strange on-going issue with XenGallery 2.5.5 that I couldn't figure out. sonnb (the mod author) spent at least a week working with me almost non-stop to resolve the problem. The mod itself is awesome and is packed with features. Highly recommended! Thanks for the excellent customer service!!!
Great Add-on with A+ support
He is very supportive, you never left alone,He fixed my problems ASAP
I am so happy with this purchase
Thank you for your great support.
Without a doubt still the best Gallery add-on. Xenforo official gallery addon could use/learn a few things when it comes to layout freshness and features needed by most members.
This is the best Gallery add-on ever made for Xenforo IMO! It looks awesome and loads very fast. You can add categories and sort albums, and there is an extensive permission set. With the video add-on you can upload videos as well. The mod author responds quickly and always fixes any issue. Thanks!
nice gallery better then the xenforo gallery! i switched today from the xenforo gallery to this gallery and it is really much better as the xenforo gallery!
Great to finally be able to move my PHPbb Gallery over to XF. Successfully completed import using V2.2.1. Wish to thank Sonnb for answering some questions I had during this process.
This addon is already 5*, for me better than the own xenforo media gallery, i hate when they put this "heavy and complex" scripts on something like a gallery that should make use at the stage of load everything in a page with no constant page loadings, more friendly to user usage. When we're able to do photo contests this addon will be the perfect! I hope it keeps being developed and not just maintained, it has potential for more polish and organization to make it simple and nice.
I don't use a lot of the detailed features for storing high resolution photos with their info but the rest of the options I put to good use. Amazing gallery system with a fantastic grid layout, social interactions with members and integrations with widgets etc.
this gallery is by far the best on the internet today. i moved from vbulletin to xenforo just because of sonnbs gallery... im sorry xen gallery, but sonnbs gallery wins hands down. its just the better gallery. and now supporting HTML5 MP4 Video uploading, what more could you ask for from a gallery? fyi: MP3 uploads coming soon. as for the support, 10/10. a perfect 5 stars from me.
