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.

THANK you people, to keep that alive !!!!

You saved my life!

I had more than 2000 galleries with NextGen and the last version was not working properly with my template (royal slider). This plugin saved my blog !

Great Solution!

At first I was hesitant to activate this plugin when seeing the notice to run a database upgrade. So, I tried some of the other NextGen alternatives first and was not happy with the results.

I took the leap and tried this plugin on a test site. Works perfectly, and does just what I want. I upgraded 11 sites that were running NextGen 2.0.76 to NextCellent 1.9.26. Removed the old NextGen plugin folder, and all is well.

Just want to say thanks for this great plugin.

Where can happy users send a donation? :-)

Incredible support
By , for WP 4.1.1

Nextcellent does a great job of continuing with NextGen without the rocky road we experienced with NG 2.0.

Not only that, but the help we've had with issues - issues that turned out to not be the fault of Nextcellent - has been astonishing.

Thank you Fernando!
