    I note that Photcrati say they are no longer supporting questions on NextGen ?
    Do we need NextGen to use Photcrati ?
    Now I am confused!

  2. Where did you read this?

    http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/ seems to be running along.

    .... I actually thought I read this as they no longer supported the Gallery plugin ...

    However I cannot seem to find that comment.

    MAybe I was wrong ?

    I did read and copied here two comments that may have been what I was thinking about as I was scanning the help pages ......

    "NextGen Galleries?

    The most popular 3rd party gallery management plugin for WordPress is NextGen gallery. If you would prefer to use NextGen (vs Photocrati Galleries) for your gallery management, our themes ARE COMPATIBLE with NextGen.

    However, we no long specifically support questions on NextGen.

    For the time being, we’ve kept our FAQs for NextGen available. To see them, click the “Third Party Plugins” tab on the left. However, for specific support questions or problems, you should go to the"

    This is the bit that concerned me.

    I have spoken to Photocrati - they tell me in the next release they are looking at "Merging" the two together ..... so I am reasonably concerned that our workflow will be disrupted ... we will deal with it - but it would be nice to know which is the better way to go with for now ... Photcrati Galleries and Management OR NEXTGEN Galleries and Management - Which one will the best suited to follow given the upcoming changes ?

    A little birie suggested NEXGEN Galleries would be best for now.
    But having read ...

    However, we no long specifically support questions on NextGen.

    I remain ....."concerned"

    Cheers.

    i know that they don't officially provide support for the free plugin - is that maybe what they meant? i don't think they want people asking for support for nextgen when they're on the photocrati site, which makes sense. i have both, and i was told that when they merge it will be an automatic thing. its supposed to convert them for us, at least that's what they told me.
