This update improves the addon very much. It's really nice now, even working for large galleries with ~ 100k images and comments. Already ready for default style, little styling tweaks in EXTRA.css will make it fit perfect for UI.X styles.
Thank you :)
Looks as expected with Default style, other styles may need css adjustment. Reasonable features (such as option to switch off categories in side bar), seems to perform well even on a 70k images installation. Could be improved with some features, such a showing thumbs and comments for categories with sub categories. Price is a bargain for what it delivers already. Thanks!
