Great product with superb service
By , for WP 4.4.2

I'm really happy to have chosen NextGEN, a great product packed with functions, easy to use, and with superb service. No wonder it gets top reviews everywhere.

I installed the Pro version about a month ago. I have since contacted their e-mail service and have received detailed instructions to do the (non-standard) things I needed to do, which included modifying their code. Cais and Becky were kind and helpful, and went out of their way to explain me how to do things. And it's well written code, too; in more than forty years in the IT I have seen all sorts of code, from the stellar to the putrid, and NextGEN is on the bright side.

I would recommend the product 100%.

Too many hoops to get a simple gallery
By , for WP 4.4.2

There are simply too many hoops to jump through to put up a simple gallery (different settings pages have redundant information - such as thumbnail size - do I have to change that everywhere??).

I ended up with white borders on my thumbnails, and my client doesn't want that to display his art work (how to get rid of borders?). Also the forward/back buttons on the full-size pop-up images are on the image itself, which is invasive on art work.

I spent way too much time finding how to have a full-image thumbnail, rather than a cropped portion of the image (again, for art work, my client wants the thumbnail to be a miniature of the whole work). For my use, the steps to create and post a gallery need to be in logical order (create gallery, select images, select options - including thumbnail style, borders- yes or no, etc.) and not appear on more than one settings page. Then to post the gallery - what is with that complicated multi-tabbed pop-up???

when any of ALL 'Delete Revision' plugins delete the old revisions of post, then gallery attached to latest revision of post - is not work anymore.
this is your miss in wp_delete_post_revision method. please fix it.
i'm using 'better delete revision' plugin. you can do next for know problem:
Create post, next edit post and add gallery, next run delete revision plugin, now try to open post page and you will see Invalid gallery error.

Helpful, friendly and speedy support

I use Nextgen Plus on clients' sites and occasionally have to ask questions of the support team. Invariably I get a quick answer, always clear and concise. A great plugin, made better still by effective communication.

Perfect and free gallery
By , for WP 4.4.2

Perfect free gallery for your web. Pictures can be sorted by galleries, albums, tags. You can easily put galleries to your posts and pages. I use a free version of this product.

Best photo plug-in I have found
By , for WP 4.4.2

Initially used the free version but have now upgraded to the Plus version 1.3.5 as wanted extra features (though not e-commerce). Have found it easy to use, with the only issue being the watermark only works with text not a jpeg upload (hopefully will be fixed in next version - but not a deal breaker for me). Any problems easily fixed by the quick and accurate response for help by e-mail. If you want an easy to use gallery plug-in, with plenty features and good looking web galleries this is the best option.

Good gallerys complex back end
By , for WP 4.4.2

NextGEN pro provides some great looking galleies, but its complicated if like me your a photographer and not a website builder, whilst the finished produt looks good I found it daunting, plus my hosting companys server crashed, lets hope it wasnt related to the plugin, whilst I like the product i'm not sure if I will keep using it yet, really need to see if there are any shortcuts I can find changing details.

My best gallery plugin of all time

My best gallery plugin of all time. Keep up the good work.

Uninstall of nextGen Gallery not possible
By , for WP 4.4.2

During uninstall several errors appear. It is almost impossible to delete the nextGen plugin folder from the server. The tables in the database remain also.


A correct uninstall routine is one of the easiest things considering coding a wordpress-plugin. If a plugin doesn't unstill correctly I can only say: hands off!
