Even the simplest functions seem overly complicated. Switched to Envira instead.
As of this time, I feel it's still full of bugs, getting too bloated and is causing issues with WpTouch pro (mainly the Amp extension)as I found out today. Hopefully soon I shall rid myself of this and a few others as I am going through a redesign of my site.
As this plugin went through changes over the last couple of years, caused various issues and headaches - I think it's time to graduate to something simpler and simply works proficiently.
I feel like I really wanted to write a review for this product. Initially I was using WP Album Plus, but because my site had to be in 2 languages, I needed a plugin that was compatible with WPML; NextGen was, which was great. The first issue I had was that it did not have a search box to search through the pictures, it has a tag cloud, which is not bad, but not what I wanted. Then the compatibility between WPML and NextGen broke and half of my users couldn't scroll to the next pages in any gallery. I can't tell you who's fault it was, and in the end I don't really care. Also, compared to the plugin I am using now, it seems like the code is "heavy" and makes my front/back end a little slower.
So what I am using now is Photo Gallery, which is not compatible with WPML but I realized I can't depend on a plugin to always work so I now create galleries for each language. The reason I like Photo Gallery is they have a search feature and it seems much lighter and quicker, more streamlined. Unfortunately I had to stop using NextGen but I really enjoyed it, I just didnt like that it should have been compatible but it wasn't and when I asked support why it wasn't they said they have a lot of things to work on and hopefully will get to it soon.
I would definitely recommend this plugin if you are not looking for a search feature and if your site doesn't have a whole lot of pictures, because thats when I feel it gets a tad slow.
GIF format not supported, slide show cannot go to next page automatically......
Too many functions need to be improved
This gallery has a lot of interesting features, like albums, tags, etc...
but all that is wasted by too much bugs that can make some simple operations very painful... I would not recommend it.
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.
This is very bad that, If I installed this gallery plugin, unable to checkout to my woocommerce site. How can I solve this issue. anybody can help me please.
Otherwise, this gallery plugin is so nice and helpful to make gallery.
I am looking forward to hearing reply from administration.
Only 3 stars from me because I don't think this software is as user friendly as I understood this will be.
Tech team is responsive with queries.
Couldn't get sidebar widget to work and also watermark doesn't work. Didn't try to trouble shoot because I get really tired and frustrated of plugin coders blaming each other when their own plugin has issues! Other than that using gallery on page...
