The Photo of the Day feature is fabulous. The amount of time and effort put into this plugin is impressive. I would like to see an update to how the slide shows look – or it just maybe that I haven’t found the right features yet to make changes. – there are seriously A LOT of settings. This makes this plug-in really responsive and easy to work with your theme. The developer took a lot of time to layout a well organized way to search the documentation and has even listed plugins that may cause issues. Take the time to read his Do’s and Don’ts and other documentation. I hope that the developer continues to update this plugin!
