[Resolved] [Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] [next-gen plugin] strange events after update

  • I upgraded next-gen today to 1.8 and following thing happened.

    The “lightbox” effect are gone and the photos that used to be in columns are now in a single row? everything worked just fine before the update, after the update i did also update the database as it asked me to do. What could have happend? I have no clue at all. No error message occurred during the update so anyone have a clue, can i do a rollback to version 1.7….

    Thank you

  • Maybe something didn’t uploaded correct, reupload all files via FTP

    same thing with me…

    my lightbox effects are completely gone….

    I would like to know the last version of the NextGEN Gallery that’s compatible with the lightbox effect and version 3.0 of wordpress.

    I would love for things to go back to normal.

    Same here… this upgrade broke my theme, the slideshow tag no longer displays properly.

    This is not the first time this plugin has required excessive attention upon upgrading during minor revisions. I like it when it works but it’s almost becoming not worth the trouble due to the maintenance required with running it.

    Example of the plugin breaking the category view on my site:


    The guilty post:

    Niva’s 2008 Artwork Gallery

    Alex, I’ve now manually removed and brought back all files from fresh ftp upload after downloading the .zip file from the plugin page. It’s safe to say it wasn’t the upgrade which broke it.

    As I said if the upgrade failed, delete the NGG folder and upload the version again via FTP. I didn’t changed any stylesheet and effect

    Alex, done, it didn’t fix the situation.

    I found out that it was the imagebrowser function which was breaking the CSS of my site.

    [imagebrowser=3] worked fine in individual post view but it pretty much caused a major issue when in category view. Not sure the problem there is entirely due to the plugin but definitely worked prior to upgrading NGG.

    I’m trying to figure out how to make the slideshow work again. The following code used to work before, now it does nothing:

    [slideshow id=3 w=500 h=500]

    The odd thing is if you follow the links above you’ll see the “gallery” has a function to view as slideshow. That seems to work fine.

    I’ve tried all sorts of variations of the slideshow tag, can’t get it to work on my site. Any help is appreciated.

    Maybe downgrade to the previous version and check if it works for you : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/download/

    Yeah, I’ll give it some time for now. I don’t want to deal with the upgrade nag constantly on due to the older version.

    In the meantime maybe someone else will have the same problem as me and figure out a workaround. I’ve avoided the breaking CSS problem now so the site at least looks ok even though some functionality went down.

    Thanks for your help so far Alex, I really like your plugin, just ranted earlier out of frustration. Got things to do now, I’ll check in later to see if anything has been resolved.

    Hi all, i got to work, on my part it was not the plugin. When I did the update the permission for the files changed to 755, i changed back the permissions to 777 for the plugin and everything worked perfectly again.

    Hope that this helps for the others with problem.

    Alex thank you for your reply and thank you for your work with the plugin, I will donate some to you when I am able to it.

    Mvh Henrik Andersson

    thanks for the feedback, good to know

    mxfarsa, which files did you change the permission for? All of them?

    @ e7 i changed permission on the entire ngg gallery folder and all the files in it from 755 to 777 that made it working again for me. Hope it helps you

    mxfarsa, that didn’t make the Slideshow work.

    Is anyone reading this using the slideshow function?

    Can you please specify the exact code you’re using?
