The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 9 million downloads.
there is no other way of putting it. Version 2.0 wasn't ready. Just check the forum before updating. Its broken a LOT of other plugins. With it being such a disaster, it also means you'll now get no support for any non-2.0 upgrade related issues as they are busy trying to patch that! Very frustrating for such a huge plugin
Easy to work with.
Does what it says.
Good work flow.
I'll stick with this one.
Awesome plug in! I had 160+ images to add to my website based on my digital artwork. With the help of NextGen gallery. This was a painless process, easy and quick.
Who is the genius who decided to introduce a premium version of a popular plugin used by millions of users by breaking the free version that made it so popular? After using this for 5 years, this latest upgrade crashed my site, only to find that suddenly 5 of my plugins are no longer compatible with it. Even after removing ALL other plug-ins, I still cannot get any gallery effect to work - including lightbox.
I am attempting to roll back the version, but having trouble with that also! I see this as the beginning of the end for this plugin....
Love the plugin, use it on many sites - but v2 was a mistake, so many issues and warn my clients do not update, because you are at risk of losing your galleries and pictures. Even a fresh install of WP with the new plugin - doesn't even work, sure you can create galleries and upload pics, but then you'll see... wait where are my pics, I just uploaded them. Not cool, even the uploader fails. I'm looking for an alternative.
The extended view gallery doesn't display album thumbnails and html tags.
Although I am afraid installing WP 3.6 while running the plugin, I like it since Alex Rabe provided this amazing plugin ... !!!
I updated to NextGEN 2.0 and immediately thereafter, all of my links, when clicked, took me back to my home page instead of the correct page. When I deactivated, the links worked again. I am using the Twenty Ten theme.
I do appreciate NextGEN providing the info on how to reinstall the down level version, which, I did, and all is working again.
Please post a notification when this bug has been fixed so I can add it back in.
I forgot my own rule: never rush to update to a X.0 version of anything. NextGen 2.0 broke my smoothly-functioning slideshows and float boxes. If you also jumped in before looking, here's where to downgrade to 1.9x:
You have to be very cautious with any new update or upgrade of NGG plugin. It has proven to fail you on every other new version. Without an automatic downgrade option (WordPress really has to consider this) you are safer waiting for the next stable release at least, instead of rushing to upgrade automatically. Besides, the new version's interface is less user-friendly and would actually make you do extra clicks and memory work.
