The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 10 million downloads.
It does not work well at all.
Very disappointed - so much for a good product being over improved to not work
Upgrading to NextGen Gallery is not an easy or seamless process. It is essentially starting from close-to-scratch. Unlike previous versions, which I found terrific, ver 2 is not intuitive, and reminds me of the old saying, Don't build me a clock when I merely want to know what time it is.
I suggest anyone approach this new version with caution.
We should create a fork (GPL) of the last non 2.0 version and do non "PRO" development …
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 ... !!!
