The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 7.5 million downloads.
After installing and acitvating NexGen there was only a blank site. It was necessary to use the ftp login to rename the plugin folder, that I could access to the admin panel. I tried many things but it doesn't work.
..when it was previously one of the best.
I can not even begin to fathom how you have gone about making it so bad.
I once used this plugin on almost every site I ever built and now I avoid it like the plague, and that would be my advice to anyone looking to use it.
Another upgrade = another failure.
Do not use this plugin and if you are already do not upgrade it.
Never heard of the error 'Not a valid Ajax action' before, but it sure is annoying, this function which supposedly allows for the image to be refreshed, rather then reloading the entire page, On or Off the same error appears, It does so in a arbitatry fashion, Some Gallaries are fine while others Wont appear! All the images are physically stored. On the front end of the website what appears is 'no images found'.
First time reviewer, Is this fixable in the short term? from the reviews ive seen a lot a tedious work needs to be done! Dont have the time for that. Cut & Run to a different browser??
I'v used the plugin and was ok, but the latest installation block the all site. It's pitty, used to be a good plugin. No more...
downgrade is not possible, all galleries are broken
This plugin was a superstar in my toolbox for WordPress development for years - right up until it was purchased by the new developer.
Now I have hundreds of completed sites that are all looking like crap because of this plugin. The updates continue to make this situation worse, not better.
If this is a planned obsolescence to inspire the public to upgrade to a paid plugin, I think it has backfired. Any developer who can take such an elegant and well thought out plugin and turn it into a huge headache and essentially trash without doubt is not a developer I will pay for anything.
Like everyone else, I am in search of a replacement.
Any candidates people?
The new version blocks the site (the monitor turns black)
I still use 1.9.13 because it has the Wiew with PicLens.

We are still using version 1.x and it continues working great.
Last time I used Nextgen it was quirky, but powerful, especially with the right add-ons. Now - since being taken over - it's useless. I can't even get it to display a single image and it's not for lack of trying. Quirky I can work with, this is worse than useless as it stands at present. I did look at the 'Pro' version but their site is so slow it was torture and I gave up.
search WordPress 'Gallery'
I've used NextGEN Gallery for a long time now, and I've been happy with it. But since they got bought and it became a product of Photocrati, it's really gone downhill. I don't write many reviews, but I hope to give someone else a fighting chance.
The newest update completely broke my site. NextGEN was interfering with several other plugins including Broken Link Checker and Business Directory Plugin. It created errors in IE 10 that completely made the site unusable with that browser. I've spent hours over the past two days tracking down the problem, and finally concluded that it was NextGEN.
If they get their act together, I might be convinced to give them another try. Until then, stay away.
