The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 7.5 million downloads.
Sorry, but as of version 2.x this plugin can not be used anymore. It just broke my wordpress installation and nothing worked anymore due to mysql errors. Just downgraded to a 1.x version and everything worked fine again. In versions < 2.x it's a very good an powerful plugin. The latest version is really a bad one.
I'm using the Parabola theme and apart from one small issue, NextGEN works fine for me. The issue was with Parabola permalinks. The default interferes somehow with NextGEN but if you change the permalink to 'page name' everything's fine.
Also, I posted that problem I had and got the answer that resolved my problem from NextGEN support within the day. So I'm a happy client.
ce plugin est devenu inutile maintenant que WP gère lui même les galeries.
de plus chaque mise a jour de ngg provoque des bugs, le code est lourd et très mal documenté. bref, plugin a éviter !
Before downloading NGG 2.0 I suggest reading some of the reviews and I mean reading them, not just looking at the numbers or average score.
My five cent is that the legacy version of NGG worked fine for me for many years. NGG 1.9 provided a way of organising thousands of pictures into galleries, changing thumbnails, adding watermarks, adding titles and captions. I used it both for keeping my pictures in order and to make slideshows (with add-on plugins). I found it very useful.
I never manged to get 2.0 to work and I will now move on or rather back.
I have used this plug in for years. Ever since the "upgrade" it has failed to work. DO NOT USE THIS PLUG IN! I am over trying to get this to work, rolling it back, asking for support, who needs it. Used to be the best now it is the WORSE.
This plugin is the best!
I hope in the future that we can costumize in simple way the galleries!
Good work Team!
It provides a very efficient set of tools to manage galleries.
I decided to do the integration with the WunderSlider Gallery plugin because of all the gallery plugins I tried, as far as I can remember, I almost always ended up using NextGEN because it simply works and it has enough features for a lot of use cases.
I used to love this gallery, but as of version 2, it has become unusable for me.
I had Nextgen gallery installed on 16 websites, but have actually had some sites shut down because of excessive processor time and database calls that were tracked directly to NextGen gallery.
We were forced to the decision of removing NextGen gallery from all websites and replace it with something more stable and resource friendly. Still looking for the best alternative.
I hope that these issues are resolved, but I can't risk having sites taken down by the host while we wait. Maybe introduce a "Light Version" someday? I will miss NextGen.
This used to be the best gallery for WP, now just gives giving lots of errors. It is thousands of records to the wp_options table, no idea why and ca nnot stop it from happening - what a shame.
Once a useful albeit quirky plugin. Now a wreck. For those who don't want to upgrade to the 2.x world, there's a branch called NextCellent Gallery which is built off 1.9.x NGG.
If you are just starting out, 2.x might work for you.
