Obnoxious message to regular subscriber users
By , for WP 4.1.1

Displays "Flash slideshow support has been removed from NextGEN Gallery. Please see this blog post for more information." to regular subscriber users when they are logged into my WordPress Multisite. I can see the need to have this for the admin but this is not necessary or should be allowed to be turned off at the admin level for the plugin.

incompatible after upgrading

With new upgrading nextgen can't find my images

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.

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
