Support » Plugins and Hacks » WordPress Galleries – any (decent) ones?

    Apologies for the double-post, but thought I’d ask here as well.

    After playing with NextGen, it feels incredibly bloated and hard to use; it’s like using a sledge-hammer to nail in a picture-hook.

    WordPress is first and foremost a blog application, so I guess trying to extend it to galleries is always going to be doomed to some sense of failure.

    What I might try and do is make Coppermine more WordPress-like and use some SEO and Lightbox plugins (if they exist). I’m basically after full-feature gallery infrastructure rather than hacking WordPress to be a gallery, so having everything automatically set up rather than having to create pages for galleries/albums, plus nested galleries/albums and intermediate copies and thumbnails.

    If anyone had any suggestions, they’re by all means welcome.

    I personally like PhotoSmash

    Photosmash looks OK, but again it’s not really what I’m looking for.

    As I said in my first post, I’m looking for a full-featured gallery that takes advantage of the WordPress display engine and templates.

    Thanks for the comment though!
