NextGEN Gallery
MVC issue still around (4 posts)

    I had an old version 1.9.x of the nextgen gallery on a personal site. I hadn't updated in a while, so I went through and updated to 3.8.2, and the various other plugins as well, including gallery.
    First problem came when nothing but the spinner would show. no errors, just the spinner.
    So I copied my images off, and deleted the plugin and re-installed. no change. So I looked through the threads and found the roll back procedure. Did that with 1.9.13, and got back to the spinner issue.
    Upgraded again, this time, got the MVC error. The only link that worked was the manage gallery link, and even that wasn't working quite right.
    Tried some of the path mods I found, but nothing.
    I've deleted and re-installed several times, and here's what I get:
    1. install straight to 2.0.61, the only tab available is the "Manage Tags".
    2. Install the older 1.9.13, it shows up, but I can't display any images.
    3. Install 1.9.13 then upgrade... MVC error on most every dashboard page, and any gallery I try to show.

    So... If all of the module exists under the plugins directory, what's in the MySql database that needs/can be deleted? Don't say nothing, because I've found some stuff just searching on the word 'next'.

    I am close to just killing this plugin off & going with a different plugin, but I'm trying to be reasonable.

    While I'm not a php programmer by trade, I am somewhat familiar with the language. I just haven't found a good answer on how to proceed.

    @billfry - If you have eliminated the possibility of a conflict with another plugin or your current theme and you want to "start over" clean you would need to clean out all of the database entries as well. Aside from the three tables with _ngg_ there are three standard tables that also have references to NextGEN Gallery written to them.

    You would need to look into these as well ... wp_options, wp_postmeta, and wp_usermeta.

    I would recommend a full verified backup before delving into the database to "clean" it, and would still recommend re-checking (if you haven't already) for possible conflicts first.


    - Cais.

    Yes. I disabled all other plugins, checked the PHP configuration, etc.
    Thank you for the list, it helped.
    I deleted the entries in each of those three tables ( the _ngg_ tables were already deleted from removing the plugin earlier), and re-installed.
    That seems to have resolved the issue.
    Now I just have to figure out why the basic_thumbnail only shows one column, no matter how I alter the settings... before, it showed several rows & columns like in the examples.. now just one column.

    Found it... just not sure why it's having a problem with the plugin.
    If I have WordPress Gzip Compression activated, it causes the thumbnails to be all in a single column. wierd.
