Good concept, but full errors.
By , for WP 3.8.1

just downloaded this nextgen gallery together with the public uploader.
So now users can upload images in the correct gallery BUT the gallery itself doesnt seem to work properly.

What goes wrong:
In the gallery settings inside the WP dashboard, there is a lot of functions for example: Thumbnails with carrousel. There is about 10 options inside the thumbnail configuration but if you change any setting, nothing happens on my site. The gallery doesnt change at all, can't choose 4 column, or thickbox, or when using the carrousel => page reloads when clicking an image.

Also, I have an error comming from the Fancybox Jquery from this plugin.

Great Plugin. Thanks for your hard work, Dev Team!

This is a great, professional plugin. Very powerful and easy to use. I resisted upgrading because of the negative reviews it was getting after Photocrati bought it, but I must say that it works wonderfully on complex websites and integrates well with many other plugins. Thank you, dev team, for your wonderful work.

More pain that it is worth - upgrades break galleries regularly
By , for WP 3.8.1

Don't know why I religiously upgrade my plugins... mostly to make sure I have the latest releases for security, I guess. But, I'm ready to delete this plugin and move on to something else. This last time of breaking my galleries has just frustrated me one to many times!!

If you have this working on your site, don't upgrade the plugin! More often than not, upgrading the plugin either screws up your settings and you have to go through and try to change things to make it work again, or it just totally stops working as is the case with this latest upgrade.

Can't even keep their own site running as when I try to go to their own site for support I am now getting:
Error establishing a database connection

Very frustrated and moving on to something else!

great plugin and super fast response to my question.

Don't Believe the Star Ratings
By ,

Most of the positive star ratings are from before Photocrati bought the plugin and ruined it. WordPress should separate the reviews from those prior to version 2.0.0

It's very misleading.

Terrible Awful Plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

Took what was once a GREAT plugin and totally destroyed it. Nothing works correctly, it's incredibly slow, the settings are beyond chaotic and make absolutely no sense whatsoever. Terrible terrible terrible, the people who bought this and changed it should be utterly ashamed of their total lack of skill & understanding.

If there was 0 Stars, I would give that.

Don't be fooled by the Downloads, most of those were BEFORE Photocrati destroyed this plugin. Hopefully they use the money to go back to programming school.

Fatal Error with other WP Plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

My Site CRASHED and can't log in...
I got message:

"Fatal error: Cannot redeclare file_get_html() (previously declared in /home3/.../public_html/.../wp-content/plugins/nextgengallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/simplehtmldom/simplehtmldom/simple_html_dom.php:71) in /home3/.../public_html/.../wp-content/plugins/free-seo-audit-google-speed-api-check/lib/simple_html_dom.php on line 80"

Now I have to access my cPanel and change the Header.php extn in File Mgr.

Below was the same problem I faced which happened... TG there's YouTube!
