The most popular WordPress gallery plugin and one of the most popular plugins of all time with over 12 million downloads.
I like the ease of use this Plugin offers out of the box.
I'd love to add multilingual descriptions of pictures.
Add an additional field select the language and enter a description, and a gallery page to embed this way [nggallery id = 1 lang = en]
Use it on many websites.
It works perfectly.
My site has over 5000 images and NextGEN with NextGEN Pro handle albums and galleries and ecommerce really well. It also supports mobile delivery, multiple display options, automatic thumbnail generation, and automatic water-marking and so much more.
I am most impressed by the support, especially from Cais and Becky. The plugin developers seem personally interested in helping me integrate NextGEN and also seem genuinely interested in hearing about my feature requests even if my business requirements are quite specific. Honestly, I don't know how they have the time to take such personal interest.
I often like to build things myself - but when it comes to images and WordPress, NextGEN and NextGEN Pro is so very altogether worth it.
I installed NextGen Gallery and it works perfectly.
I love the fact that I can develop and post blogs directly from LR
One word of warning though.
Don't try to upload your gallery until the NextGen plugin has completed creating the post on your WordPress site.
It can overwhelm your server, and it may incorrectly detect the data as a malicious attack and blacklist your IP address.
Easily remedied by contacting your hosting provider, but it's a pain.
Just slow down and make sure the progress bar in LR has completed before hitting the 'Publish' button on the images you'd like to upload.
I recently upgraded to NextGen Pro and had trouble getting the lightbox full screen slideshow function to work. NextGen support staff (especially Becky) were great and worked on minor fixes to get my site up and running smoothly. Thanks!
The Pro Lightbox delivers a lovely presentation, and my client love the Pro Masonry gallery look. This was an extensive project and the NextGen support team was responsive and helpful and responded to every request I sent. I've used NextGen gallery for several sites now and it only gets better.
This should say 1 star - clicked wrong and can't change it
Appalling - downloaded and installed, it said installed successfully, but when I clicked Activate it crashed the whole WP installation - can't get into anything!!! Be warned !!!
Works perfect and brings exactely what I needed for my blog: An intelligent tag cloud and beautyfull galleries for my over 2.500 pictures.
I'm using the Plus-version, not the free version.
Edit on May, 13th:
I had a lot of questions concerning the functions and the handling of Nextgen Gallery. As a Plus-version user I can use the email support. All my questions, really ALL my questions were answered quickly, kindly and helpfully. The Nextgen team does a great job, thank you!
