NextGEN Gallery
Can't change default import folder (4 posts)

    After upgrading to the latest version and experiencing different bugs, I've got a new one, that kinda freaks me out.

    I got over 25.000 images in more than 950 galleries nicely sorted, but now I'm not able to choose the import path anymore.
    If I choose "Import Folder" I'm stuck in "wp-content", but all of my galleries are in "root/wp/media/%year%/%month%/foldername" - how can I get there?

    I have the same issue.
    it would be great to get back to the old (and great) functionality!

    Plus, i cannot edit or modify the path of older gallery.

    @Exxodos - We may have the solution to your issue, we have just released a new beta version (http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/nextgen-gallery-latest-beta/) that will now allow you to import from outside the /wp-content/ folder.

    Place this anywhere in wp-config before:
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    define( 'NEXTGEN_GALLERY_IMPORT_ROOT', dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/' );


    - Cais.
