Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » The most important wordpress plugin

  • This is not a question.

    I just want to say that Nexgen galley is, in my opinion, the most important WordPress plugin. I use it for every project I work on and it’s a cornerstone of my development. It’s flexibilty is astounding and one can essentially make it do anything.

    I would not request any changes to it, except maybe to release a version with less inbuilt libraries – no slideshows etc…allowing those who can, to add jQuery etc at will. I essentially always do and merely use nextgen as a SUPERB gallery administration centre.

    I have been thinking about putting up a site with nextgen examples showcasing the flexibility (I have managed to build a flash flipbook for instance)…just haven’t found the time…but will hopefully manage to do so in the future.

    Great work Alex Rabe and team.

  • thanks… indeed sometimes it’s better to reduce the amount of functions for a faster, lighter and more useable core plugin. But it’s also hard to get all requests and wishes maintained with different plugins

    I just always like having complete control of all aspects of my sites and hate having stuff I don’t use – always look for a native solution before I would install any plugin. Nextgen is brilliant – couldn’t work without it…but I just fear that a few versions from now it’s going to have so many builtin templates and features that one loses comprehensive control.

    Perhaps all the more reason to build a website with various nextgen implementations…that people can copy and use as opposed to building them into the core.

    But…hey…that’s just me. I’m sure majority of people would disagree.

    i still agree… i try to keep out features which are not usefull for the majority
