Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » Problems with permalinks after upgrade

  • Resolved NFWRo


    I’ve just upgraded to the latest version of NextGen Gallery and now my galleries do not show. I’m getting a Page Not Found error. If I uncheck the Deactivate gallery page link in the Gallery settings, clicking on the links to the galleries simply refreshes the gallery page without showing the requested gallery. If I uncheck the Activate Permalinks option in the General Options, then the galleries show but without a title or anything.

    I have tried clicking the Save button to update the Permalinks, which I gather is the way to do this, but it has no effect and everything remains the same.

    Also, the styling of my gallery page seems to have been lost.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Your pages have the .html extension in the url, is this done by a rewrite rule or a plugin ?

    That is done using the .html on PAGES plugin.

    Maybe this causes a conflict, try to disable it for a test (and update the permalinks then) If this doesn’t help you can downgrade for a test :

    It has been working fine with the previous version, so I know that downgrading should fix it.

    Disabling the .html on pages plugin does work, does that mean I can’t run the two plugins at all together, because I use the .html on pages plugin to help with SEO.

    Having said that, if I set the gallery to display the thumbnails on the same page, that still refreshes back to the gallery page. The styling is also gone.

    Thanks for your help.

    Same problem here.
    See the album:
    Clicking on a gallery gives a 404 error and even a post !?!
    The link for the first gallery is “” and should be “”
    So there is a nggallery that should not be here !!

    @li-an the permalink structure changed as written in my blog post, did you resfresh your pemalinks ?

    Also Alex, the Slideshow link is missing.

    I’ve fixed the styles – course I made changes to the .css file and they will have been overwritten, so that’s no problem.

    @nfwro No idea so far, you should stay on the previous version until I get an feeling what it could be, maybe other user report the same sses

    I’ve seen a few people saying that the slideshow link isn’t working.

    Can I just reinstall the previous version. There was a database upgrade as well….

    Yes you can downgrade

    what is the process to downgrade to previous version? i am a newbie please help. I have several galleries and photos which i dont want to loose.




    What is meant by updating permalink structure one time? Currently my permalink is “custom structure”: /%postname%/

    Is something else needed? When I checked “Activate Permalinks” with slug of nggallery and went to my permalinks and clicked save with the above mentioned permalink structure, No galleries would open. Album thumbs were shown but when I clicked on the thumb I just remained on the page that showed all the albums/galleries.

    thanks for you help.
