  • Afraid to try any more of your updates. Each one breaks something new and causes new expensive headaches. We can’t really expect our clients to pay for the time to fix this and with it broken, some of them are looking at us like we are not competent. You guys have a big responsibility to the community and you need to make this right.

  • @chip_88,
    I suggest you to stay with 1.9.13 until stable version out, but it’s all on you. Then read other user comments and reviews to see if the new version is stable and without bugs (and is optimized). During that time, you can test everything locally (not on production site).
    About new features you can always check the changelog, but I didn’t noticed any major features in the new versions.

    @mellis2718, how you can’t login (wrong password, blank page or else…)?
    Try to backup database first, then make a copy of NGG and delete original. Finally, upload the version you want. Be sure to always have a backup before deleting files and/or data from database.

    @eevan79 I am at the login page, type in username and password, get the Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 19456 bytes) in /home/content/m/e/l/mellis2718/html/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/deprecated.php on line 581

    I have bookmarks to the posts page, dashboard, etc, those bring up similar errors. I basically cannot get into the admin part at all now… I am leary about doing anything via FTP if I cannot actually login…

    Open wp-config.php and add the following:

    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘128M’);

    Do rollback then remove this line.

    @ eevan79:
    Thank you for your advice. So I’ll stay with 1.9.13, which is a stable version and won’t drive me crazy like an instable version. 😉

    One more question, although it might not belong in this thread:
    I already found out how I can center the thumbnails for the overview of a gallery, but how can I do the same for the overview of an album?

    Maybe you can help me again?!

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks eevan79, you ROCK!!!

    Doing a backup as part of the rollback process, in godaddy, I see the following options:

    Update to 3.0.7… Actions Log In

    Gallery 2.2.5 (Needs update)

    Update to 3.6… Actions Log In

    WordPress 2.8.4 (Needs update)

    Should I try that first? Should I not, and complete your idea first?

    @chip_88, it depence of your template layout, but you can do the following:
    open style.css of your theme and add:

    .ngg-thumbnail {
    margin: 0 auto !important;
    text-align: center !important;
    float: none !important;

    If you want to center titles add:

    .ngg-albumtitle { text-align:center !important; margin: 0 auto !important; }

    I just tested image management when adding posts (NGG version 2.0.12). It’s totally broken. Earlier it was much faster, better and more practical and most importantly it worked.
    When you click on gallery button earlier it displays simple chained drop-down box to select gallery, album or single image (with Ajax calls). It was very practical, fast and good.
    I am so disapointed with a new look when adding images, gallery or album. First it hangs server or even crash when you try to save/select form. Somehow, I managed to select the gallery, add to post and click save (after 2 server hangs). Broken image appear in wordpress textarea (probably placeholder for gallery). Finally, I wanted to update post to check how it looks like, but Update button is disabled (probably because server hangs earlier).
    Media library still not working (when you want to add image in post from media library).
    From simple form for adding gallery from 1.1.93, they creating something robust, complex, slow and not practical. Also, placeholder was simple…like [albumid=1], now it inserts broken image placeholder (and more code). I simply can not understand why they try to fix/improve this when it was working perfectly.

    Just saw 2.0.14 version.

    When adding post:
    Now you can say goodbye to Media library when you add/edit post. There are no images (until you disable plugin).

    When you click on a NextGEN button above textarea to add album/gallery into post, nextgen will simply eat your resources – enormous CPU and memory usage, until your server will (probably) hangup.

    People probably just want to add gallery/album into post with few clicks. Earlier we can do that with simple and fast form with few clicks.
    Now you must face with heavy and slow interface that can freeze your server, just to add one album or gallery into post/page.

    Queries on gallery view (list of 10 galleries): 216 queries for one page load.

    Transients for displayed galleries seems fixed (no more rapid inserts into database). Still, not even close to 1.9.13…

    @eevan79 – Wow! We would really appreciate if you help us out with this issue as losing the Media Library is fairly significant, not to mention a serious PITA.

    Please visit our bug reporting page here:

    It would also be really appreciated if you would provide log in details for your WordPress installation so our support team / developers could get a closer look at this.

    I realize that you are in a difficult position. As for me, no problem because I always make a backup, but I believe that other users may have problems.
    I just re-tested it locally and online. Media library does not appear, it is likely a javascript conflict.
    Thanks for the good will to help, but I do not believe that I will install a new version soon on a productive site. No offence.
    Also, a lot of queries appears on the Gallery view page (front-page). From 34 to 217 queries (displayed 1 album with 10 galleries).

    @ eevan79:
    Unfortunately, the code you suggested didn’t work.
    I’m using the iFeature – Theme (version 4.5.26).

    To center the thumbnails of the gallery overview, I found yesterday the following:
    Try to fix the wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/css/nggallery.css styles file.

    Add ‘text-align: center;’ to .ngg-galleryoverview class.
    Remove ‘float: left;’ from ‘.ngg-gallery-thumbnail-box’ class.
    Add ‘display: inline-block;’ to ‘.ngg-gallery-thumbnail-box’ class.

    In fact, this centered the thumbnails, but I can’t find any possibility to center the album overview.

    Do you think, you have a trick to do that?!

    Thanks in advance, eevan79!

    @ photocrati:
    Good luck!
    I hope you can solve all these issues as soon as possible to get back your peace!

    @chip_88, as far as I know following css class is used for albums:
    ngg-album (wrapper)

    Have you tried to refresh browser cache (F5 or CTRL+F5)? I have tested with browser developer console and it’s working fine. So, basically you need to remove float property, set margins (centered) and padding to 0 and text-align to center.
    ngg-album {

    .ngg-thumbnail -> remove float property and set text-align:center, or if you want to override NGG style using theme style.css use !important declarations (so style will stay after plugin update).
    .ngg-thumbnail {
    float: none !important;
    text-align:center !important;
    margin: 0 auto !important;
    Same for other class. With display property you define how a certain HTML element should be displayed. Example
    display: inline-block -> the element is placed on the same line as adjacent content.
    display: block -> the element is displayed like paragraphs ( as a block-level element)

    This topic is a mess, and I don’t know what’s the argument here now, but I’m just testing 2.0.14 and apropos media library editing a post I want to say that for me it’s visible, but it takes times to load (~ 10 sec.)

    @ eevan79:
    Thanks again for your fast answer.
    I cleared cache and evrything, but I’m not getting your results at all.

    Furthermore, I’m not sure, I got your point exactly.

    Because I’m using the compact album style, shouldn’t I have to change something of the following in the nggallery.css:
    .ngg-album-compactbox .Thumb
    .ngg-album-compact h4
    .ngg-album-compact p

    So, do you have any suggestions, how I have to change this css:

    .ngg-album-compact {
    padding-right:6px !important;
    margin:0px !important;

    .ngg-album-compactbox {
    background:transparent url(albumset.gif) no-repeat scroll 0%;
    margin:0pt 0pt 6px !important;
    padding:12px 0pt 0pt 7px !important;

    .ngg-album-compactbox .Thumb {
    border:1px solid #000000;
    margin:0px !important;
    padding:0px !important;

    .ngg-album-compact h4 {

    .ngg-album-compact p {

    Thanks in advance!


    Can’t test right now, but try this:
    .ngg-album-compact {
    margin:0px !important;
    display: inline-block;

    Find this class ngg-albumoverview and chanage to:
    .ngg-albumoverview {
    width: 100%;
    margin: 0 auto;
    text-align: center;

    @ eevan79: Thanks again, but I didn’t work. :/

    I solved it by changing the css the following way:
    .ngg-album-compact {
    margin:15px 15px 15px 54px;

    Now it appears centered as I wanted.

    Thank you for your help!!!
