After upgrade the attempt to add gallery to page mean the reload of web server. Bug is dangerous, forced to exclude this plugin from favorites. Whatever previous successes, hope it will be fixed.

I use Nextgen in all my websites

Still im expecting them to use new features rather than the old ones

meh, but still nothing better
By , for WP 4.1

tons of issues... image browser feature gives a lot of problems on mobile (no responsive lightboxes)... Needs a lot of coding to be ok, I lost all the files in my default WordPress media uploader trying to import them because Nextgen gallery is not syncronized with it. This is just for the free version, a lot of people told me the payed one is ok.

Adding Images
By , for WP 4.0.1

It seems like such a basic option but why isn't there a way to add images to a gallery from the media library? upload only as an only option is a serious roadblock.

I hope your next release addresses this, thanks!

Mostly good
By , for WP 4.0

On individual sites. The default settings are a little dated-looking, with multiple borders and too-small thumbnails. But that can be overcome. The results and functionality are very good.

It doesn't work at all on multi-site installations. I tried the suggestion to roll back to 1.9.13, but that doesn't work either -- you can get as far as creating galleries and uploading images into them, but the tools to insert and display those galleries doesn't work.

Nice but...

Good plugin, but little bit complicated sometimes!

Good PlugIn with some issues
By ,

I am using Nextgen Gallery for over 3 years now on different blogs. I am very satisfied with the functions, but sometimes it causes incompatibility with other plugins like Styles, Podcast Publisher and Dynamic Widgets. Even those incompatibilies are solved in time, it is annoying to test every new update and perform a complete page backup first

Easy to use but bad for performance
By , for WP 4.1.1

Seems to make my site very slow.

I use it for a long time, each new version faces the same problems again.

It would be good if the authors of this plugin devote themselves more to multisite support, i'm tired of changing the core files in each new version. Also, the plugin has few serious bugs in options. Another big concern is very low performance, according to P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler), for example, on site with 17 active plugins ( including Woocommerce ) 71% of runtime is consumed by Nextgen, even on pages where the plugin is not needed. And finally, there are tons of unnecessary scripts and styles that are loaded with every request, manually dequeue each of them is quite tedious, there should be some options ( beside for lightbox ) to filter that scripts.

I used to use this plugin until I moved to Genesis framework.
