  • Same here. Using WordPress 3.5.2. Adding myself to this thread for follow-up messages.

    @josefp2, @petr – I’ve send this over to our developers. Activation errors like this are going straight to the top of the list.

    Did either of you, by chance, install and test one of the NextGEN 2.0 betas on the WordPress instances where you are seeing this error?


    Dear Eric,

    thank you for quick response. I did not install anything except the official updates available. I always checked to have the up-to-date version whenever WordPress notified me.

    Best Regards,

    Would either of you be willing to send us credentials for your site so we can see what’s going on? If not, that’s OK. But having them will allow us to solve this much more quickly.

    If you want to submit credentials, you can consider doing so via our bug report form here:

    Please note in your report that we asked you for credentials. That just goes directly to an email for our tech support and developers.


    The problem is in class.fs.php’s function join_paths(). The array_unique function will crop the path wrong if there is a word twice in the correct path.

    Short workaround for me was removing array_unique from this function and in class.mvc_view.php’s find_template_abspath() remove the first argument of join_paths().

    Dear photocrati members please check if this solution will work in all cases.

    kind regards

    datenwerk’s solution worked for me. Many thanks

    I got similar error, but in other location
    wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/widget/templates/display_gallery.php is not a valid MVC template

    Got it right after update few minutes ago.

    Hi datenwerk,

    Could you possibly tell us which files to edit and lines please?

    Much appreciated.

    Same here – my site has crashed with this error :

    ” … public_html/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/nextgen_basic_singlepic/templates/nextgen_basic_singlepic.php is not a valid MVC template ”

    Same her – our site also has this error

    “var/www/domains/ is not a valid MVC template”

    @datenwerk: When I remove the first argument in function join_paths(), it has no effect :-/

    So this solution didn’t help me.

    2 changes are required:

    1. in nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/fs/class.fs.php l. 281 remove array_unique call

    $retval = array_merge($retval, preg_split('/[\/\\\]/', $segment));

    2. in nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/mvc/class.mvc_view.php comment or remove l. 243

    $retval = $fs->join_paths(

    I’ve changed above settings and now it’s working better, but I get the below error in the widget NextGen Slideshow.

    “Slideshows require the Flash Player and a browser with Javascript support.”

    I’ve tried it in IE, Chrome and Firefox, and all three gives the same error.

    @datenwerk: It works fine! Thumbs up! Thank you so much…

    My site crashed and shows these messages.

    How may I correct this?
