Confusing. I prefer the old style.
By , for WP 3.9.1

Confusing as hell to edit to how I needed it to run on my site. If all else fails I have my backups.

Works, but has some bugs
By , for WP 3.9.1

Thank you for the good plugin.

The import of a whole directory was very valuable for me while importing content from an old site. However if the directory contains more than 60-70 images, the imports can't handle them all and freezes. Then I must go to the gallery's edit page and use the "Scan folder for new images" button to import the rest of them. Also when I use the Import directory button multiple times, after 20-25 imported galleries I receive a server error, which says that the cookies request is too long and I can't open any page anymore, until I delete the cookies for this site.

Another issue is that I have a JS error on a post page, which doesn't contain a gallery:
TypeError: b.fancybox.init is not a function
Line 46

Please let me know how can the last issue be solved, because I wouldn't like to have JS errors on my site. I use the Hueman theme.

Edit: The theme recommends the "Light - Responsive LightBox" plugin (http://captaintheme.com/plugins/light/) and when I deactivate it, the JS error disappears. Is it it possible to use both plugins without such conflicts?

Thanks you in advance.

Worked very well
By , for WP 3.9.1

Worked well for the most part. I just couldn't get the gallery to center in the page, even though it was inside of centered paragraph tags, but whatever...minor thing which cost it the 5 star rating. Was way better and easier than other free gallery plug-ins, that's for sure.

Was a GREAT pugin before 2.0
By ,

I loved using this plugin on my sites, but since the 2.0 update and subsequent updates, it has really sucked and I HATE my galleries. I'm now looking for a different way to display photo galleries.

Many thanks to @edanzer for his help correcting my issues. I still feel the plugin is far less intuitive than older versions, but finally for the first time since July 2013, I feel satisfied with how my galleries look.

Work Like a Charm
By , for WP 3.8.2

Recently I acquired a hosting from a friend who retired, and the customer have Worpress Framework with NextGen Gallery installed, after I updated the site, NextGen updated also and works great, easy to use and probably will recommended to my other customers as well. 4 Stars? My only suggestion is to add a quick how to use guide in one of the tabs. I had to spent to much time navigating tutorials and websites try to find out even the basic use.
