NextGen - Pro version
By , for WP 4.3.1

I’m using NextGEN Gallery PRO plugin with Photocrati theme and I'm not a high-class specialist in WordPress. Before I bought the plugin, I read carefully the instructions and examples on the Web. So I bought exactly what I expected. Everything works OK. I like NextGEN Gallery especially for two things: The new ligthbox and the galleries based on tags. When I created my website, I asked several times the NextGEN for help. People from NextGEN always helped quickly and precisely. Thank You. This plugin gives the photographers many possibilities. But it is worth to taking a little time to learn about all features. I recommend it.

Needs a lot of work!
By , for WP 4.3.1

This is a really frustrating plugin. Settings don't or only partially work. In gallery mode every thumbnail opens a new page. in completely different modus and often show no image at all. Piece of ....

quick and easy

Not that complicated, easy to use.
Hint: Would be nice to have the ability of moving/copying ordinary media uploads into the NGG. Or did I have overseen something?

Shortcode doesn't works

Shortcodes never worked...

Not the biggest fan. The settings pages are to complicated with no description what is doing what.

And I discovered at least one stupid mistake in the code. I set the gallerie to show thumbnails in 4 columns. But they always broke after the third column. So I looked at the CSS Code to discover that every div that contains a image had a width of 25%. Okay that looked right. 4 columns equals a width of 25% for each image. But then I saw that they added a margin-right of 5px to the same div - and that is - sorry my language - just (a little) stupid. Of course the columns had to break.

I hope they fix that error in the next update.

But that simple mistake doesn't make me confident about the rest of the plugin

Great support

What great support - a few teething problems (all due to inexperience on my part) were quickly resolved.
If only other software suppliers were so responsive!

Bad Choice
By , for WP 3.9

I used NextGen maybe a year ago, some things weren't so good, so I uninstalled it.

Then virtually ALL of my images were lost. Unacceptable.

Imposible support
By , for WP 4.3.1

I'm trying to "install" NextGen Gallery plugin in my WordPress and it is impossible! A blank page in "Settings" and a message relative to Flash and HTML5... impossible.

I have read a lot of comments thats is the perfect fotoblog plugin but I am not sure...

Despite all this, I want to migrate a Gallery3 site (http://www.fotosdegalicia.es) to WordPress (http://www.visitargalicia.com).

Helpful and quick to respond

The nextgen pro team are very good and very responsive. It is always good to know they are there to help when necessary, although that has not been the case very often since some teething trouble two year ago.

Great support!

I really appreciated the effort that was made to help me fix an issue. It's all good again and it's working better than ever. Many thanks!
