The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 9 million downloads.
Most of the positive star ratings are from before Photocrati bought the plugin and ruined it. WordPress should separate the reviews from those prior to version 2.0.0
It's very misleading.
Every time this plugin "updates" (which is quite often because always so many errors) it crashes my sites and causes them to go 500 error. The Plugin worked great until they completely changed the coding, and ever since then it has been pure garbage. Even when it is working it is still worse than the previous version.
Find an alternative plugin before starting this one or you will end up like me with many sites and hundreds of galleries that will require you to continue to use this terrible plugin.
BTW I registered just so I can review this crap plugin.
My Site CRASHED and can't log in...
I got message:
"Fatal error: Cannot redeclare file_get_html() (previously declared in /home3/.../public_html/.../wp-content/plugins/nextgengallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/simplehtmldom/simplehtmldom/simple_html_dom.php:71) in /home3/.../public_html/.../wp-content/plugins/free-seo-audit-google-speed-api-check/lib/simple_html_dom.php on line 80"
Now I have to access my cPanel and change the Header.php extn in File Mgr.
Below was the same problem I faced which happened... TG there's YouTube!

Só gostaria de ler mais textos em português.
I have no idea why this plugin has been downloaded so many times. No where does it have an insert button to actually put the friggin' galleries in a page, put in a shortcode and that's what you see - no images and you can customize the gallery all you want - nothing changes. Would give it 0 stars if I could.
Awesome support. A+
Many bugs still to fix
I started using this plugin quite a while ago and loved how simple and error free it was. Upload your pictures, edit the alt and/or title tags and insert your shortcode on the page. Boom...lightbox plugin installed.
Then WordPress updated their software and it's been a downhill struggle since. NGG was updated but the thumbnails wouldn't display correctly. The 'fix' was to rollback to a previous version which, while it wasn't that hard, was inconvenient, especially when I had to do this on quite a few sites.
I left NGG alone for the next 3-4 versions, just waiting to hear good things about it before updating. In fact, one of my sites is still using that version (1.9.13) and, in fact, the lightbox option is still functional! However, during a recent site launch (a different site), I installed NGG (with the current 2.0.57 version) and found that it's STILL broken. I've tried all 6 of the Lightbox options and none of them work...click the link and it goes straight to it's own page (meaning I have to click the back button to get back to my site).
Oh wait, there's more. So now I'm stumped and decided to do a little research to see if anyone else is having these problems and sure enough, the most recent 10 (yes, 10) reviews are all about how this plugin has bit the dust and is no longer working.
Really? So disappointing that even after all the updates (from the WORKING 1.9.13 version) it's still not functional. It only has to do one thing correctly, in my opinion, and that's lightbox up a the picture you click on.
Stop already with the watermarks, styles, roles and capabilities, thumbnail options and reset options...delete it all and go back to what made this plugin useful; the one simple feature of putting the pic in a lightbox.
I'll be deleting it from all the sites I currently own/manage (around 30) and looking for something that works.
Does exactly what I expected. really nice plugin.
After update 2.039 -> 2.040
this plugin is not working.
In want to desinstall this for upload an older version, but the parameters are always in, it's impossible to remove this plugin completly.
bye bye Nextgen ! ! ! ! !
