La galère des dev-front
By ,

Tous sautent à chaque mise à jours du plugin, trop galère pour les override/styles.
Mieux vaut utiliser les galeries core de WP et un plugin de lightbox !

Worst Plugin Ever!
By ,

NextGen Gallery never really worked, crashed my WP installation including the backoffice and brought along several serious security issues. The worst plugin ever!

Got my site hacked and ads hijacked
By , for WP 4.2

Latest version of this got my google adsense ads hijacked. Upon removal of this plugin it was fixed.

Worst gallery plugin ever
By ,

Totally unintuitive. Totally awkward to use. I would not recommend this, if you can avoid. It's impossible to handle large bulks of images because you cannot sort them properly. There is no explanation as to the difference between a gallery and an album. I've deleted a gallery, I now cannot access ANY of the 120 photos I uploaded as they are not associated with a gallery. What an awful pile of crap. Off to find a plugin that works.

Used to be pretty good

Yet it's become very unrely-able :(
