The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 9 million downloads.
The UX portion of the backend leads something to be desired. It took me hours of tinkering around to figure out how to add a gallery. Mostly, because there is no hints or descriptions of what it is that you're messing around with. It's either blatantly obvious because of the title, or confusing because.... of the title.
i have one question i am using nextgen plugin but i want to know if i remove back up images files then it will not effect my next gen gallery? because its images and back up makes my site slow my website is [ link redacted, please do not post links in the reviews section ]
Just updated to the latest versions of NextGen and now none of my galleries show and I'm going to have to spend hours(?) sorting that before I can carry on with real work. Annoying.
Sure, there was some massive backlash when version 2.0.0 came out due to some issues. I was one of those people caught out and resisted upgrading a further 148 sites that we host (with NextGen) for customers.
However, today we started the upgrade of all our sites since the bug fixing and sheer hard work that the folks at NextGen have accomplished to move this frankly amazing free software up to V 2.0.40 is astonishing - and it works. I'd say even better than 1.9xx. Good work guys. If the folks at Photocrati Media are reading this review, let the dev guys know that there are some people out there that genuinely appreciate the hard work you put in to fixing V2 (and making it even better).
If you find this extremely powerful plugin is not working for you, just raise a ticket in the support forum and wait for an engineer or knowledgeable expert to come back to you (for free). There's a good chance you've got a theme conflict or other CSS failures. This is an incredibly robust piece of software engineering and I am genuinely grateful to the developers and company sponsors to gift this to the community. Of course, you can upgrade for even more features and a different level of support, but don't do the plugin an injustice because you couldn't get it working. Read the forums, do your R&D and get some hard work done yourself.
Actually, I've personally always found NextGen easy to integrate and most themes work with it well. Have confidence. It does work.

yes it is!!! all galleries since 2007 was deleted!!!!
great plugin. works smoothly
kept hanging on because of time invested in content, and hoping that NGG team improve the plugin and make it hassle free.
This was a fantastic and needed plugin in 2007. It's just not needed anymore.
The plugin don't works...what can I do? I got 10.000 photos with this plugin so I have to use it forever and don't update to the quacking 2.0...so bad...
The plugin is good as long as everything works but if it does not. Don't count on any help. My first request was answered with a response that they could not figure out what was happening and they would look into it further. It has been 2 weeks and nothing despite 3 more requests for help. NOTHING. Good luck if you chose this plugin.
