Nice gallery
By , for WP 4.1.1

I use this gallery-plugin for a couple of years now and almost all the time it works fine. Onely one version a while ago gave me some trouble, but that was quickly solved. The only disadvantage I can think of is that there are too many options. The learning curve is a bit steep. But when it works, it works well!

Very slow compared to version 9.1.13

VG Gallery Tool (2.0.66)
By , for WP 4.1.1

2.0.66 in use now - I almost migrated to 2.0.77 but it was already time-consuming getting to know the version I started with...

Very robust tool - matter of fact I'd give it a '5' (instead of 4) if it was a bit leaner and more user-friendly. Controls are a bit old-school - though with some learning-curve action it becomes excellent.

Excellent support - and looks like it works

Haven't tested in details yet, but I had some older galleries which it found, and they opened fine without any problems.
Will be interesting to work with the new(er) version(s), now that it looks like major bugs has been ironed out. Keep it up, Photocrati :-)

Great plugin, quick support

I've recently had some issues I couldn't sort and asked NextGen support to look in to it and I found them speedy, efficient and helpful. I'm now back running the plugin Plus version & love it!

After upgrade the attempt to add gallery to page mean the reload of web server. Bug is dangerous, forced to exclude this plugin from favorites. Whatever previous successes, hope it will be fixed.

Good Support and Nice Products Nextgen and Photocrati Themes
By , for WP 4.1.1

I am new to WordPress and did not wish to experiment a lot with themes or galleries getting started. So I did a little research and found Photocrati offered flexible WordPress themes and an outstanding photo gallery plugin - Nextgen.
I purchased both products.
Both products were easily installed and I began using both right away. I sometimes struggled with both products (because of my lack of experience and knowledge of WordPress). But I was always able to get encouragement and support from someone at the Photocrati & Nextgen company. Becky was especially helpful. I am still learning and trying to improve, optimize, and expand my web site.
I am not a good reference for technical support as I am still learning (maybe I will be a good technical reference in a few months). But my primary interest is photography - not web development.
I am very happy with both products (Photocrati Themes and Nextgen Photo Gallery). The company (Photocrati) appears to be very anxious to hear from customers and eager to produce the best product on the market.
I would highly recommend both products to anyone who is looking for a WordPress Theme or a Photo Gallery plugin.
My web site is:
Best of luck to you.

NextGen Galleries - Great Customer Service

My site went down from an update and I emailed NextGen after service hours. Within an hour of my email for help my site was back up and running.
Thank you, NextGen!

Great Plugin & Support Team
By , for WP 4.1

I've been using NextGEN for a couple of months. I use the NextGEN PLUS edition and all the features work as described on their website. I initially ran into an issue during setup and the support team were quick to respond and resolved the issue.
Months after the issue was resolved, the NEXTGEN team occasionally checks in to ensure everything is still running fine. Definitely recommend this plugin to others.
Thank you !
