Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » Pagination / Permalinks not working

  • I can’t get pagination to work properly when using ‘pretty’ permalink settings.

    Let’s say I have a gallery that is split over 4 pages.

    Page 1 shows fine. URL is [domain]/[page name]
    Page 2 will work, and will give the URL [domain]/[page name]/nggallery/page/2
    Page 3 will work, but give the URL [domain]/[page name]/nggallery/page/3?q=/[page name]/nggallery
    Page 4 will result in a 404 error, because the URL its creating is [domain]/[page name]/nggallery&q=/[page-name]/page/4.

    It doesn’t actually matter what order I try the pages in, the permalinks just seem to get increasingly complicated, until the point where it doesn’t work after the third page.

    If I reset my permalink settings back to default, with ugly page names, it works just fine.

    I’ve researched the problem as far as I can, and initially it seemed that a fix was simply to reset the permalink settings (save to default, and then save back to pretty permalinks) but this hasn’t made any difference.

    I’ve deactivated all other plugins, cleared the cache, and I still get the same problem. I thought initially that the permalink settings in the WordPress SEO plugin might have been conflicting, but the same problem exists when it is deactivated.

    Everything is latest version – WP3.9.1, NextGen 2.0.65, and I’m running on a Linode VPS with nginx.

    You can see an example of the issue at

    Any help or advice much appreciated

  • @pplong Does the error still occurs if you active one of the WordPress default themes?

    Hi tizz,

    Sorry, I should have said – yes it does, I’ve just swapped it over to twentythirteen now, same problem.

    thanks for your quick reply

    @pplong – Have you tried the Reset Option under Gallery > Other Options and then clearing the image cache under Gallery > Other Options > Miscellaneous *after* refreshing the WordPress Permalinks (switch to default then switch back to your preferred structure)?

    – Cais.

    Thanks Cais, but no joy I’m afraid – I did the following:

    – Saved the permalinks back to Default, and then re-saved them as /%postname%/
    – Reset the gallery options;
    – Cleared the image cache.

    But I still get exactly the same behaviour (and I’m still using a default theme, twentythirteen, with all plugins deactivated for testing)…

    @pplong – I’ll admit to nginx not being one of my strong suits, but is it possible there could be a configuration issue at hand on the server?

    I suggest these references for using Nginx with WordPress:

    Otherwise, it may be best to submit a Bug Report ( … please reference this topic) for this issue so we can get one of our developers to look under the page.

    We will likely need log in and FTP credentials for your WordPress installation, please include those with your Bug Report.


    – Cais.

    it’s certainly possible it’s related to nginx – I’ve just tested on apache and you don’t get the same problem.

    I’ll see if I can drill down on a config problem

    thanks for your help
