The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 7.5 million downloads.
Upgraded from 1.9.x to 2.0.40
My site's home page load time with gallery is 128 seconds
without gallery is 7 seconds
Good bye NGG
I installed NextGen on several sites for clients BEFORE the launch of the Version 2 series and was VERY HAPPY with NextGen.
I have tried updating my clients' sites to version 2, and each time the galleries break horribly.
I have also tried installing NextGen version 2+ on 3 BRAND NEW sites (NOT upgrades from NG 1.9.13) and the 'new and improved version' simply does not work; the upload image function simply fails. I join the chorus of other WordPress developers in lamenting the apparent slow death of this plugin.
I'm sticking with Version 1.9.13 until I can find a worthy replacement.
La última actualización de URL, cada galería la trata de forma diferente y da problemas con los CSS anteriores.
Que lo arreglen por favor.
I was very happy with the pre-Photocrati NextGEN. Then, I made a huge mistake trying to upgrade. I perfectly understand that things cannot be frozen, and there must be some development all the time.
However, something very wrong happened in this specific case. I really hope that the native WP media manager will not need any plugins like this one.
Removed from my Favorites.
Again, it WAS A VERY GOOD PLUGIN years ago. I remember only one bug in thumbnail editor, which I was able to fix with just one line of code. All the rest was working perfectly. Still work on some of my sites, where I did not upgrade.
Im currently unable to upload picture.
During upload i get an HTTP error
I rarely comment on a product, and eschew the idea of commenting only when things get negative, so I must admit that hypocrisy. With that being said, if you build a site around the plug-in with, say, what I have, upwards of 10,000 images, you should be prepared for the unexpected. At this point, I must join the dissenting voices. While I am comfortable troubleshooting problems with my blog, over the past few weeks I have dedicated not just hours, but days, to resolving plug-in issues that seem to be related to this plug-in. It's a great plug-in, but I simply cannot give it anymore time and energy, and, as of today, cannot recommend it as it is,though I did just upgrade to 2.0.40 and am testing it as we speak. My current issues are as follows:
1. No longer Ajax pagination, as a matter of fact, no more pagination. It lists the subsequent pages in a gallery numerically, but clicking a number does not take the user anywhere. I do have another plugin for nextgen that optionally uses a Google jQuery instead of the WordPress one, and that, when turned on, restores pagination, but not Ajax; however, it also creates other issues so I turned it off (albums are missing from pages that do come in, etc.). And, yes, with that plugin (not nextgen) deactivated, nextgen still does not page for me.
2. When I bring up the Atttach to Post option, the fields are empty. I used it a while back and it was great, but I cannot edit empty space.
3. I used another plugin called scrollgallery with my nextgen galleries and it was great, till, after three days of fussing, I removed it because it kept giving warning to the user. The developer gave me the fix, which worked sometimes, but created way too much work for me with all my galleries and images, so I abandoned that plugin.
The short of it is, I am removing the nextgen plugin and going with something else, expecting my problems to be resolved more expeditiously. Finally, my site is running like a dog. Won't come in now, as we speak, not sure why, could be server issues, of course. But I have also seen where nextgen users are having this issue.
It's a great plugin if you never upgrade it. I rolled back five versions yesterday trying to get to what used to work for me, just a few weeks ago. I no longer have the time and energy to do that. Peace.
This is a great plugin... when it works.
The interface is easy to use and comes with a host of features:
Automatic image resizing,
Automatic thumbnail quality,
Lots of display options,
Drag and drag album management
However, it's caused me so many headaches as it seems to be incompatible with too many other plugins.
This was a solid plugin and then upon updating to 2.0+ it completely broke two of my older sites. Backward compatibility, is that even a thing anymore?
Switched to NexNextCellent Gallery
Hard to believe what Photocrati did with Alex work, kind of sad.
Wont use NextGEN again...
