Amazing
By , for WP 4.3

NextGEN gallery has been my go to gallery for myself and clients for over 8 years. I have installed both the free version here and the Pro version with the ability to sell your photos and have only ever had an issue once. Which they were quick to take care of and very helpful.

I highly recommend this gallery to anyone that want to have the best gallery available for WordPress. If you are serious about your photos and want them to look amazing give NextGEN a try.

As you can tell I cannot speak highly enough about this product and I have lots of clients that would back me up on this also.

Broke my site
By , for WP 4.3

Was looking to add a decent gallery function to my site and this is somehow the most popular plugin. After installing it broke my site and made the admin area inaccessible. Had to toy around with cPanel and FTP to fix it again. Do not install.

Even when things are wonky, the support is great. I wish more plugins were like this. Thank you so much for putting out a great product and for the help!

Crashed wordpress
By , for WP 4.3

Site and Admin dash crashed and became unresponsive after plugin install. Had to resort to backup recovery to completely remove plugin.

There are clearly some issues with the script of this plugin. Very unreliable and highly unstable. I do not recommend.

Developer will likely comment below requesting why a "support ticket" was not opened to resolve. Answer: For a plugin to entirely crash a website and require a backup recovery to remove it from the root files the only option was to remove entirely. It cannot be trusted for use for fear it may happen again as various site elements are updated, amended etc.
