The design for the pro version is really nice out of the box. Especially the lightbox. I love the comment area, the ability to share, the grid layout and animations. This is the reason I ranked more stars than not. The design on the freebie version looks horrendous. It can be fixed via CSS if you are familiar.
Why not 5 stars?
1. There isn't an option ( that I can find ) to change or add other social icons. This has become an issue for my clients and myself.
2. What's up with not being able to search the images??? I spent
Overall it's really nice.
This plugin is great but needs some updates to become the best, recommended..
My best gallery plugin of all time. Keep up the good work.
It works as it should. I don't have problems so far.
This is a great plugin and one I have used for many years now. I usually find that clients are happy with the basic options which work really well but on occasions have needed that little bit more and as always NextGen have a solution!
Thanks for a great plugin
I've been using NextGen (Pro) for almost two years now to show off my art and it looks great, both the thumbnails and lightbox. There's lots of options that can be set generally and overridden per gallery where needed. It's easy to create multiple galleries, say per year or per theme, and combine them where needed -like on a page displaying all your pics- without having to create a new gallery. Support is speedy, friendly and helpful and the website provides plenty of helpful documentation.
The reason for the missing star is that I find the speed of development a bit slow. In the past two years I haven't seen many new features added, while I and many other users are really hoping for decent search and filter options. There are, however, regular updates, for instance when WP itself updates, and NExtGen had definitely been running with perfect stability all this time.
Other than the missing search and filter options (which is certainly no deal-breaker for me), I have nothing but praise for NextGen. I highly recommend it!
When installing i got an error message. I thought the plugin wasnt working the way it should. After checking the error log i realized there was a server limit.
Thanks for the gallery
Not only did Photocrati make this into an amazing product, but they provided world-class support when I had a question, the answer was good and very quick ...
Continue in this way ...
Thank you for your action
My client updated a site without my consent so I spent my whole weekend fixing because the site was suddenly showing blank screen. When I disabled this plugin, voila! the site was live again. This used to be a good gallery plugin.
Does everything you need it to do, fairly easy to use. Only complaint is how difficult it is to move a gallery from one website to another, which isn't an everyday problem but is really the only issue we have run into.
