Was a GREAT pugin before 2.0
By ,

I loved using this plugin on my sites, but since the 2.0 update and subsequent updates, it has really sucked and I HATE my galleries. I'm now looking for a different way to display photo galleries.

Many thanks to @edanzer for his help correcting my issues. I still feel the plugin is far less intuitive than older versions, but finally for the first time since July 2013, I feel satisfied with how my galleries look.

It does perfectly the job

Work Like a Charm

Recently I acquired a hosting from a friend who retired, and the customer have Worpress Framework with NextGen Gallery installed, after I updated the site, NextGen updated also and works great, easy to use and probably will recommended to my other customers as well. 4 Stars? My only suggestion is to add a quick how to use guide in one of the tabs. I had to spent to much time navigating tutorials and websites try to find out even the basic use.

Newer Versions worked for me...
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have used this and even bought the pro version for my clients. It has worked well for us - better than previously. Only fair I revise since my experience has differed than originally.

Used to work but since latest version short codes stopped working properly - i see ALOT of people with this issue and error but noone seems to be doing anything about it... :(
I finally gave up and used a better written program for my galleries.

Good but

The pagination doesn't work when the wordpress Permalink Settings is set to "Post Name"

A Great Idea
By , for WP 3.8

Looks nice, and might be what I'm looking for, I just wish it could import existing galleries from my server, so I don't have to re-upload them again.

Issues solved

Updated review: After reporting the bug to the staff, they promptly sent me back the script to repair the issue, so my rating has changed.
Original review: Once moved from the localhost to production site, the lightbox stopped working. This seem to be a common error according to support forum. When a plugin has common error in it's core functionality, I can't rate it more than 1 star.
