Works great on one site, but not so much on another
By , for WP 4.1

I have two sites that I maintain and I would like to be able to use NextGen on both of them. My first site is my business site, which I have my own hosting package for. It works flawlessly on that site. So much so that I ordered the Photocrati Theme for my site as well (love that).

The other site is my wife's site. I can't get it to work properly on that site. It errors out on uploading images every time. Her site is on the same account as my personal hosting package, which runs a couple of other WordPress sites. I don't know if this is the cause of the problem, but it's unfortunate because my wife's site could definitely benefit from this plugin. I'm considering moving her site over to my other hosting account (both on the same hosting provider) and see if that helps.

Other than the problems on my wife's site, this is a great plugin and I am very happy with it.

Stopped working since last update

Words great for us - not as intuitive as it should be
By , for WP 4.1

I've used this plugin for a photo album now for a couple years, and it's doing the job very handily. I did need help setting it up, as I don't think it's very intuitive. I used CSS to tweak some of the settings and finally got what I wanted, but it wasn't a quick job. Now that it's all set up, I just update the files and let it go. Very nice use of captions.

It works

Installing and using this plugin for a beginner is very easy. A this time perfect for me.

A lttlle rough but works
By , for WP 4.0.1

Not real sure how galleries and albums relate. seems there is some album duplication of galleries needed to get the slide show to work.
Short codes are not as they seem... documentation does not work

No Way for Gallery Search
By , for WP 4.0

Works good.

The only problem is when you have many galleries already and you need to look for one of them, you do not have any tool for search.
The galleries list spread over few pages, and it's hard to look for.

Easy operation and Good appearance.

Many options.

Would be great, if not for absolute paths
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin pretty much works as it should, but for a developer working locally or on a temporary server, it can be a headache to move the site for the final domain, as the plugin makes use of absolute paths for a couple of features, such as templates (no matter if default templates or inside a child theme).

Edit: added another star for the support provided by the author. Still need to test the suggestion.
