NextGEN Gallery

    Hello to all,
    I'm using NextGen Gallery as a plugin for viewing my photos.

    I created a custom template for displaying the album, but after the last update of October 4 this file was deleted.

    Why?
    At the end of file is a custom and not a native file NextGen Gallery.

    How can I resolve to avoid this problem in the future?

    Thank you.

    Whereas Theme updates use an "overwrite" process of copying over files if they exist and leaving "extra" files alone, plugin updates are a "destructive" process where all of the files in the plugin folder can be expected to be deleted and then replaced with the new/updated files.

    Unfortunately this will remove any extra files you have added to the plugin folder(s). We are reviewing options to try to sort this out.

    - Cais.
