Review of Photocrati
By , for WP 4.5.2

Photocrati is an excellent product which I am extremely glad I chose to use for my business website. From beginning to end the package has been brilliant and the support professional and fast.

Great Plugin and good support
By , for WP 4.5.2

I'm using the Next GEN Gallery plugin on 3 different sites and it provides just what we need to display photos from recent events and activities. I recently moved a site to a new hosting company and an issue developed which their support team was extremely helpful in resolving. Great plugin to provide a photo gallery for your WordPress site.

Absolute garbage
By , for WP 4.5.2

Plugin hasn't rendered galleries properly since 2.1.23. No capabilities to configure galleries even in most recent 2.1.43. Used to love it, now looking for replacement.
And I didn't actually click on 5 stars. I would click zero if I could, but now I can't modify the stars. Sheesh

Excellent Feature Rich Plug in with prompt support
By , for WP 4.5.2

Have used this plug in on 5 very different sites all requiring images to be presented differently. This plug-in has proved reliable and when I needed support (for the first time) this week - the response was competent and prompt.

Name and SLUG gallery
By , for WP 4.5.2

With this version 2.1.31, when I put the name of the gallery "Morning-with-PČR" and the FTP folder is created with capital letters and accents. The database creates bad "slug" and then can no longer appear on the site.

NetGEN is broken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO ONE WILL ANSWER MY POST
By , for WP 4.5.2

I am not a high level programmer! I am only a user of WP. I have a problem with update WP 4.5 and NextGEN Gallery 2.1.31 that has come out of the blue. I am using Theme Catch Box. Cannot upload images to any Gallery that has been in use for years and I have used NextGEN for 2/3 years with not one (1) single problem. Now I cannot upload any images even after using the NextGEN reset plugin. Today I have lost the settings selection to configure NextGEN. I can access all of my Galleries and images. Need a simple solution that I can understand. My site is http://www.firstchristianchurchpensacola.org/ . Today a new problem is occurring ie - Your browser doesn't have Silverlight, HTML5, or HTML4 support. Error occurs with all 3 browsers IE 11/10/8, Foxfire and Chrome. ALL are the latest versions! My e-mail address is [moderated]

Extremely Reliable
By , for WP 4.5.2

The Good:
Works as intended. Works great for what its suppose to. In my opinion, this is more geared towards a developer doing this for their client. I would not have my client do this as the process is not straight forward. Lot of options / customization. Considering the support (if your using the free version) is optional, it was great. My issue did get resolved, I did get a responce in a reasonable time considering again, its free and they are under no obligation to do so, as many don't even provide support at all.

The Bad:
As stated above, a little complicated to set up a gallery. Once its set up its farly easy to add it to the page. Adding images to a gallery could be a little simpler, most of my clients don't understand how to do this. The exact difference of albums, gallery's etc is unclear.

Bottom Line:
If your ok with a little complicated to use each time then this is perfect. Its reliable (one client has over 800+ images in different galleries). Most other gallery style plugins crashed under that amount of images.
