Developer misled everyone almost 4 years ago stating he was releasing a version to support XF2. Disappears, and resurfaces, disappears again, talks in circles makes more empty promises. Frankly, he needs to be removed as a resource because of the extensive documentation about being unreliable. Openly admitted in his own posts "I believe that I vanished long enough". He needs to permanently vanish. Unreliable developers like this are a plague to the community and forum owners who trust them for security and feature updates.
This is one of my favorite plug-ins of all time. 5-stars is not enough, really can't say enough great stuff about this gallery system. I even have purchased the official gallery system ... disabled it. This one is just better in every category except for giving the ability to post to the gallery and having the pics 1-click post into a forum post.
I am one of the early customers of this XenGallery addon. I purchased it in 2013 with its version 1.x when the other availabe addon XMG (XenMediaGallery) was not yet merged with XF. I do not regret that decision for Xengallery.
Xengallery is so much better for photography oriented forums vs. XMG. It is not only cheaper than XMG, it offers also even after 5 year years now still more and better features for photo-centric-communities. The video upload features are also good. And it is looking better, which is an important point for this target group (photographers).
You have with Xengallery importers for everything. You do not need to own XMG, if you buy XenGallery. And the developper is VERY fast in responding and resolving bugs. High quality work. Almost no features are missing for photography communities (see my suggestions in the forum of sonnb)
Please keep this focus on photography and photographers also for the new XF2.0 compatible version in 2018! As far as I heard this will be called then Xengallery 3.x, which shall com eout in the second quarter of 2018.
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!!!
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!
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.
