OK, so galleries have not worked on my site (using Thesis theme) for a week now, so it was with some anticipation that I saw the update today ... and a great disappointment to discover it did nothing to fix the issue. Patience is wearing thin.
As I said last week, images now load on their own page. I was using NextGEN Gallery Optimizer Premium, but deactivating that has no effect on the problem.
Would it not, at this stage of the catastrophe (let's call it what it is) make sense to revert to the previous, functional, plugin version, rather than making everyone go through the dodgy reversion process by themselves?
I'm going to have to fully restore my site when I have time. Thank goodness for backups!
I never had a problem in the years I've used this plugin and have supported it with a donation each year. Looking now for an alternative.
