    This is not a question.

    I just want to say that Nexgen galley is, in my opinion, the most important WordPress plugin. I use it for every project I work on and it's a cornerstone of my development. It's flexibilty is astounding and one can essentially make it do anything.

    I would not request any changes to it, except maybe to release a version with less inbuilt libraries - no slideshows etc...allowing those who can, to add jQuery etc at will. I essentially always do and merely use nextgen as a SUPERB gallery administration centre.

    I have been thinking about putting up a site with nextgen examples showcasing the flexibility (I have managed to build a flash flipbook for instance)...just haven't found the time...but will hopefully manage to do so in the future.

    Great work Alex Rabe and team.

    thanks... indeed sometimes it's better to reduce the amount of functions for a faster, lighter and more useable core plugin. But it's also hard to get all requests and wishes maintained with different plugins

    I just always like having complete control of all aspects of my sites and hate having stuff I don't use - always look for a native solution before I would install any plugin. Nextgen is brilliant - couldn't work without it...but I just fear that a few versions from now it's going to have so many builtin templates and features that one loses comprehensive control.

    Perhaps all the more reason to build a website with various nextgen implementations...that people can copy and use as opposed to building them into the core.

    But...hey...that's just me. I'm sure majority of people would disagree.
