The plugin enhances WordPress gallery shortcode in most gentle manner possible. Since v2.1.5 the mechanism of the enhancement is dramatically improved to avoid possible conflicts.

If you find a possible conflict and prefer third-party features to taxonomy-based gallery of the plugin, please deactivate the feature (unset
Enhanced media shortcodes option on
Settings > Media > Media Library (tab) > Media Shortcodes) and let us know about the issue. We would like to find a solution!
