This seems to be an exact ripoff of the Mediamatic Media Library Folders plugin. I didn't look at the code but I assume it was copied wholesale. As far as I can tell, the only difference is the introduction of a serious bug, to wit: the subfolders feature doesn't work at all. You can drag to create a subfolder, but when you leave the screen and come back, the subfolder has reverted to a top-level folder. In addition, it has the same bugs I recently reported for Mediamatic.

You may not like this, but we are allowed to review the items. And this is my review for limiting to 10 folders. If you are going to offer something paid learn to limit something create an addon.

OMG! I do not write reviews very often, but had to write one for them. I run a beauty and cosmetic store so I have HUNDREDS of photos. I needed something that would allow me to group photos by brand name. The UI is clean and very simple to use. No coding or cumbersome set ups. Just click a button and create a folder. That's it! It does limit you to only 10 folders, but the Pro version has unlimited folders and I'm most likely going to purchase it. I absolutely love this plugin! Thank you so much for this wonderful plugin!
