    Greetings:

    I have a wordpress site thats a new install. Its setup in a subfolder off the root. NextGen is installed. So far its working without a problem. But I have come across a few postings in which its inferred that there are be problems running Nextgen in a subfolder.

    So, here are my questions:

    1. Are there known issues (for Nextgen) in the case were wordpress is installed and run from a subdirectory?

    2. If I move the wordpress install from the subdirectory to the root, what steps will need to be taken in regards to Nextgen?

    Thanks

    Tim

    There is definitely an issue if you don't want to have separate folders for any blog on a WP multisite environment. But if any blog in your WP multisite environment should have it's own gallery (your root should contain the placeholder %BLOG_ID%) and you should not encounter any difficulties! (Of course I'm talking about the network administrator settings & dashboard in a WP multisite).

    (UPDATE)

    Well finally it seems I found a solution.

    When I change the global path at the network settings and going back to a sub blog, the path is still the old one stored for the gallery. When I go to the Reset/Uninstall page of NextGen Gallery and hit Reset the path gets updated to the settings from the network settings. So this solved the issue but I lost all other settings I made. (All albums stayed - Only the Option-Settings are getting a reset!) To be honest this is something I can manage and redo my settings the most important thing was to get back the proper folder settings to my galleries!
