Very flexible and works incredibly well with their other plugin WP Recipe maker. The interface is easy for anyone but also allows complete customization when needed. What puts this plugin over the top is the top-notch support. The developers respond promptly and are always happy to help. I highly recommend both WPUG and WPRM.
Great plugin. Allows you to create pretty much any layout you can imagine with any post-type. As with every plugin it has room for improvement, but nothing is perfect. Has a very friendly back-end UI.
I loaded it and gave it a try but it displayed really small images and to edit the template was going to require buying premium. I was not really sold that it would be worth the time compared to learning how to integrate isotope/masonry myself from the js library without this plugin. I guess this plugin, in my mind, falls in the gap between not simple enough for novices and not basic enough for developers. But I only gave it a 30 minute try.
This plugin is excellent, looks good on site and works smoothly. However I have to give it 3 stars because it only allows to show ONE post-type and not multiple ones (just like every other Isotope plugins that are supposed to use custom-post-types as source). In other words, you cannot build an Isotope filtering all custom-post-types. Plus, just like any other Isotope plugins, it doesn't pull the first image of the post but the featured image. I hope you will improve it.
