It is good

Metadata troubles
By , for WP 4.2.2

When put images after 2.1.0 update ALL meta data were lost. [?] I've revert to a previous version of NGG, which I "hacked" to import unicodes from IPTC, but timestmaps were ignored.
I've reupdated to 2.1.0 - seems that all is OK :)

Great plugin but has some issues
By , for WP 4.2.1

All of a sudden, I can't upload to my galleries. This happened on two separate sites hosted on different servers with different themes.

Ever since version 2, it is a bit unstable and wonky.

However, the support is surprisingly good for a free plugin. I have faith that the issues will eventually be sorted out.

Sorry

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
