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

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

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

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.

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.

Very bad

Sorry but your plugin was a pain in my ass.

Never i did a review on anything at wordpress , but this gallery was insta bad for me . I could not even fix this cause source code was messy , anyway if someone can answer , i did a slideshow gallery and wanned to see something like lightbox but instead i saw link preview of images , it's just loading <div> <img> </div> structure via js file and nothing i can do about it.

Not impressed at all - $15 not well spent

I'm surprised, given that I had to pay for "Premium" functionality for a plugin that enhances NextGen Gallery (which is free) that it didn't knock my sock off, it didn't even go close, it's rubbish, ugly and doesn't really seem to work that well at all, save your money people.

This plugin is really sucks
By , for WP 3.4.2

Amazing, but for plugin with ZERO functionality you require to pay 15$, make donation and to hire the author!

Fancybox even didn't work out of box. But when you turning to display NextGen's "view as Slideshow" the notification appears, on your website without slideshow, that you should pay for that functionality.
Stupid plugin, totally useless.

It was free but now you have to pay. A donation is voluntary, a payment is mandatory. If it costs $15 now to use this plugin please change your wording.
