So happy I found this plugin
By ,

I've been 'not updating' NextGEN since 1.9.13. Had it set up the way I liked, and didn't have time to learn a whole new version, with all of its so-called improvements. Very happy to find this fork, it has already addressed some old bugs. Keep up the great work!

Wonderful Gallery & Support!

NextCellent Gallery is awesome. As NGGallery used to be.
Thank you very much for maintaining it.

This info will be useful for users with shared hosting with limited resources.
I have average site with few different plugins installed on the website.
I tried to compare how many resources consumes NGGallery and NextCellent Gallery plugins.

Detailed stats on my website:

/wp-admin/ (admin section)

  • 26 sql; 0.35 sec; 23.43 MB; - without Gallery plugins
  • 46 sql; 1.54 sec; 33.08 MB; - with NGGallery
  • 27 sql; 0.38 sec; 25.35 MB; - with NextCellent Gallery

/ (homepage, page without the gallery)

  • 27 sql; 1.00 sec; 29.72 MB; - without Gallery plugins
  • 42 sql; 1.15 sec; 38.93 MB; - with NGGallery
  • 27 sql; 1.00 sec; 31.17 MB; - with NextCellent Gallery

/images/ (page with the gallery)

  • 30 sql; 0.91 sec; 28.96 MB; - without Gallery plugins
  • 73 sql; 2.03 sec; 40.45 MB; - with NGGallery
  • 31 sql; 1.03 sec; 30.49 MB; - with NextCellent Gallery

Enough said.

P.S. NextCellent Gallery plugin is fully compatible with NGGallery. But before using it, you should disable NGGallery because these two plugins cannot be activated at the same time.

I used NextGen till Alex "gave up" on that.
Photocrati did NOT followed the way for a top-plug.

With that legacy - everything is fine again.

Still problems with loading the galleries
By , for WP 4.2.1

The plugin put url's behind each other so i get a error message of url too long when i want to access my gallery. This plugin doesn't work out of the box and is unusable.
