I have gone through about 10-12 different photo gallery plugins for WordPress, and the only one that met my feature criteria was aNiga gallery which is incompatible with WP2.5 and not likely to be updated anytime soon.
I've tried nextGEN, WPG2 (and a full installation of Gallery2), Duh Gallery, Inline Gallery, and a bunch of others. I'm really only looking for one feature: nested photo albums. WPG2 does it, but it's not a very native solution and requires a lot of hacking and customizing to get it to work with some of the WordPress functions available in normal template files.
I've Googled and combed these forums, and other people have brought it up, but I haven't seen a resolution. Does anyone know of a photo gallery plugin for WordPress 2.5 that handles nested albums and possibly video? And that can be embedded through adding some kind of tag within the content of a page?
My website depends heavily on the structure of parents and children and whatnot.
