The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 10 million downloads.
Nice plugin. Easy to use and a very clean interface. The only thing I wish it had is social sharing buttons. If that's not a big deal to you. then I highly recommend this gallery plugin :-)
Good image manger
Not had any problems on more than one site using different themes.
this is a great gallery plugin and worth a try. However it does seem to have run into a few different conflicts depending on the set up of your website. Most of these conflicts are easily solved and it's just a minor annoyance more than anything.
My advice would be give it a try and see how you get on with it. Still the best gallery plugin I have come across.
I have had lots of problems with permissions and roles. It simply disappeared. But I saw a very useful tutorial how to fix it: https://www.role-editor.com/nextgen-gallery-restore-lost-capabilities/
There is no possibility to use this plugin for frontend users. NextGen Uploader does not work for WP 3.9. If you need this, you better choose Nextcellent Gallery.
BUT: In general this gallery is indeed the best one for WP. I would give 5-star rating if the above mentioned problems would be solved.
Confusing as hell to edit to how I needed it to run on my site. If all else fails I have my backups.
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
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.
used it for a straight forward image gallery requirement..worked like a charm!
this is a great plugin.
I found the shortcode examples hard to follow
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.
