NextGEN Gallery
NextGen Gallery problems (2 posts)

    Recently upgraded to WP 3.01. Since then I haven't been able to get the nextgen gallery to work again. By default it was set up with gallery directories under the old WP structure - wp-content/gallery/ With the upgrade though, now all images and directories are under wp-content/blog.dir/1/files/. I completely uninstalled nextgen gallery and reinstalled and tried recreating the galleries, but it can't seem to find the files when I click on a thumb. I'm using the shutter effect, and when I click an image I just get the shadow overlay and a loading, with no image. Also, in the WP backend, if I go into the manage gallery area, no thumbs are displayed and if I try to view the images it just does the loading thing. I tried recreating the old structure - wp-content/gallery/ - and by doing so I can get the nextgen gallery to function on the front end, but I can't add new images in the WP-backend. I can FTP new images into that gallery directory, then scan the directory for new images, but that's kind of a PIA. Any thoughts?

    Hi, don't know if this will help you, but I resolved similar issues that appeared after the upgrade by setting my NextGen gallery addresses to each of my community blog(s) by hand.

    Prior to the upgrade, it worked if each blog user activated the plug-in individually. After the upgrade, this no longer works for new blogs. Waiting for a fix from the author.

    For example: I had 20 blogs to fix (this is a MU install). I went in options and changed the wrong address - it happened to be wp-content/blog.dir/9/files/ - to the correct blog number for each blog.

    wp-content/blog.dir/12/files/
    wp-content/blog.dir/13/files/
    wp-content/blog.dir/14/files/ ...

    After that, each individual blog's NextGen started working properly again.

    So, check to see that your directories match your blogs.
