Since updating to WP 3.5 I have no been able to successfully add images to any NextGENGallery gallery. At the developers' request, I installed NGG 1.9.11 beta, which didn't help, so I submitted a bug report, also per their request.
I've searched for hours and tried pretty much everything I can find and nothing has helped.
I've tweaked .htaccess. I've totally cleared it out. I've CHMOD'd all relevant folders a hundred times. I've manually inspected my database tables to see what's happening, to no good end.
I can upload the photos just fine. The images arrives in the right folder, but it's not actually added to the gallery.
Likewise, nothing really happens if I try to add a gallery. It acts like it takes it, but doesn't actually do anything.
I can rearrange image order in galleries, as well as delete whole galleries, but that's the extent of what I can do, it seems.
This says to me that the plugin CAN access / write to the db, and CAN access ftp without trouble. Beyond that, I cannot figure out what the problem is.
Has anyone figured out a solution?
