Wont deactivate!

Fatal error: Call to undefined method C_Lightbox_Installer::uninstall_lightbox()

Solved my problem and great support
By , for WP 4.1

After struggling for hours with Ajax pagination in NexGen Gallery, I came across Optimizer. I couldn't believe how fast Mark sent a reply to the question I asked relating to my issue. Even better - he solved the problem. Plugin is simple to install and very effective. With support this great I'm going to check out Deactivator as well.

Interferes with Nextgen Pro Lightbox Controls
By , for WP 4.1

Couldn't figure out why my Nextgen Plus Lightbox (slideshow) wouldn't display the -> play button. I disabled Gallery Optimizer and the play button returned. Activated the plugin again and the slideshow play button disappeared. Deleted Gallery Optimizer and all is OK

This plugin doesn't do what it says
By , for WP 4.1

I have used this plugin to prevent any load for nextgen styles and scripts, this plugin didn't change anything the scripts and styles are still load.

Doesn't work with NextGen
By , for WP 3.9.1

I'm assuming it's due to their major changes of NextGen, but this plugin doesn't remove any backend Scripts/CSS for it at all.

Not working - and even adding addition weight / load time in some cases.

This is a scam
By , for WP 3.5.2

NextGEN Gallery Optimizer actually degrades the performance of NextGEN, trying to con you into paying for basic functions that you can use only if you don't have the additional parasitic plugin.

It also wrecks the appearance of the default NextGEN gallery.

Works like a charm & great support!
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's easy to use and it compliments the NextGEN gallery plugin perfectly. I had a small issue (that I caused myself) and I was stoked that the plugin Author went out of his way to help me to resolve it - great support! Thanks again.

Excellent Support!

Thank you so much for this great plugin and also for the EXCELLENT support you gave me with the Premium version. I will recommend it!!

This plugin is garbage. Especially since I paid 15 dollars for the "premium" version. There is no difference in site performance, trust me. The only thing this accomplished was removing compatibility with mobile users.

I want a refund.

Best support ever
By , for WP 3.4.2

I had to contact Mark (plugin author) a few times and every time the support was really great. He replied in just few hours and told me what to change till my problems were solved.

I recommend this plugin and support to the fullest!
