Wow Moodboard Lite


A mood board is a type of collage consisting of images, text, and samples of objects in a composition.
They may be physical or digital, and can be “extremely effective” presentation tools.

With Wow Moodboard you can add a mood board to your posts and pages to visually illustrate the style you wish to pursue and quickly inform your audience of the overall “feel” (or “flow”) of your idea/product/article/writing. In other words you can add a collage of Youtube Video’s and Images (both uploaded and Google Image Search) to any post or page (including Woocommerce / Jigoshop products) to add that extra edge to your presentation to make it stand out.

I am sorry to say, but the plugin does not work as it should be. I bought the pro version. Some things working other, like the FIND MOODBOARD BACKGROUND IMAGE SEARCH with google does not work. Ik send a ticket to the designer of the plugin but i get no answer on my question to help me with the plugin problem. And now i can not login anymore in the admin because i am blocked. Not so nice, no good so far. I hope i get a answer / help soon to fix this problem.
