Crashes site
By , for WP 4.3.1

I only run 2 plugins - Akismet and Jetpack - and it is not possible to run NextGEN as well. As soon as I activate NextGEN, I am locked out of the entire WP interface! All I see is an Fatal error message on a white page. Lastest version of both WP and NexctGEN as well as Akismet and Jetpack.

Simply not working
By , for WP 4.3.1

Since 2.0 it is not working propelly, there is always any trouble, pictures simply are opened in an empty window, there is no way to navigate between pictures, I have to go back and click on another picture. No matter option I choose the inserted code is exactly the same and it is not working.

Errors after update to 2.1.15
By , for WP 4.3.1

Galleries don't work after update to NGgallery 2.1.15. Instead of inserted galleries that behave the way they used to, there is only a thumbnail now that does nothing.

Considering to change to a different display plugin or removing NG completely and using WordPress native galleries instead.

White screen of death upon attempting to add first gallery

Every now and then they release a version that brings the site to its knees. Just my luck to have 45 sites with this plugin that *again* no longer works, is a real pain in the ...
I'm looking for an alternative because there's just too much troubles with the plugin since Photocrati took over. A real pitty because I like the plugin - when it works.

Used to be great, now frustrating
By , for WP 4.3.1

Have been running this for a few years on our Scout group website. The latest update has caused no end of problems with the site just showing a white screen. Have removed and reinstalled with no success. I have now un-installed and will be looking for something else to replace it.

Needs a lot of work!

This is a really frustrating plugin. Settings don't or only partially work. In gallery mode every thumbnail opens a new page. in completely different modus and often show no image at all. Piece of ....
