Bugfix release V1.9.2


Yes, I’m still alive ! Terrible busy with my job at the moment and in the spare time I’m playing Skyrim, which really makes me crazy… So, NextGEN Gallery development has a little break, hopefully after my vacation next week I can catch up some new energy for a restart.

Anyway, I’ve collected a couple of bugfixes the last weeks. The new version 1.9.2 is now avaiable.

Enjoy !

    Thanks for this bug fix. Works great on my site

    I keep getting the error “a failure occurred” when the uploader tried to generate the thumbnail images. I’ve searched all over the internet, tried several things, but still no luck. Do you have any tips? Thanks!

    Hi Helen. I have exactly the same problem as you. I was hoping this new version would do the trick. But the problem is still there. The error message with creating the thumbnail says there is not enough memory. I haven’t been able to upload any photos for over two months. If anyone has a solution, I’d be really grateful.

    I’m using your great plugin since I started to work with wordpress. I noticed some days ago the thumbs in the compact album view aren’t there where they have to be. Here’s an example: http://arsenie.net/photos
    If you can see, there is a white space upper the thumbs, what’s wrong with it?

    There is still a bug into the template system!
    Templates for gallerys are working well, but templates for singelpic are not working.
    This bug started September 2011 (Release??) Before the templates for singelpic are OK.
    The describtion for this template: NextGen –Einzelbilddarstellung mit Bildunterschrift per Template is on my Site: http://www.msr-support.de/nextgen-einzelbilddarstellung-mit-bildunterschrift-per-template-2642.htm

    For those having issues with “out of memory” errors – have you looked/checked memory limits in your PHP configuration?
    Most likely, you are using the default values which are not sufficient to handle image resizing and thumbnail generation on the server side.

  7. Gravatar Icon 7 Teddy Posted January 19th, 2012 - 00:02

    Thanks for the update and for the excellent plug-in. I’m having trouble with the “add hidden images” functionality. Though I have it checked, on galleries where there is pagination, the lightbox is only showing 25 out of the 40 or 50 images (the ones associated with that page not the entire gallery). Am I not wrong about the purpose of that checkbox in Gallery Options? Again, many thanks for this excellent plug-in.

  8. Gravatar Icon 8 Merlin Posted January 19th, 2012 - 09:18

    Thanks for this great Plugin, but even in the last version
    there is still this terrible bug when sorting pictures manually (drag & drop)

    Here you can see what i meen: http://klauda.at/screenshot.jpg
    The pointer and the picture an out of “focus” the are not in the place where the should be.
    It is impossible to drag the picture at the right position!


  9. Gravatar Icon 9 xSEOn Posted January 19th, 2012 - 16:06

    It would be very nice if the gallery link on a album page opens the gallery images for browsing instead of the gallery page. Such behaviour should be an option within the Settings ofcourse so that the admin manually can switch to such view or use the default one.

    Thanks for the great plugin!

    Just downloaded and installed NextGen Gallery on my WP site, and it seems to be just what I have been looking for, though I do have a few questions about altering the size of photos displayed in a slideshow format, as well as where the images in the slideshow actually appear on the respective page. Is there a way to change the default size/locations of the slideshow images? Also, is there a way to have a description of each photo pop up when a user hovers over the image, even while the slideshow is playing? Please advise. Thank you.

  11. Gravatar Icon 11 FBGamer Posted January 20th, 2012 - 09:39

    do have some problems with Thumbnail resizing… before the update all thumbnails (on index page, category pages etc.) where cropped and now they have fixed dimensions.. no matter what i do (mark and unmark “set fixed dimensions”), there is no change…

  12. Gravatar Icon 12 Alan McCluskey Posted January 20th, 2012 - 09:54

    Thanks for the advice, Vladimir. It worked. I had to up the php memory limit to more than 65M.

  13. Gravatar Icon 13 Kristin Ayers Posted January 20th, 2012 - 18:14

    I have been using this plugin for a few years without a glitch. But, now when I try to add images to a gallery I’m receiving this error.

    **Create Image failed. Check safe mode settings**

    According to the setting for this plugin, safe mode is set to false. I’ve tried going through all different forums and I see a lot of people have the same issue.

    I’ve tried setting the folder permissions to 777. I’ve tried deactivating the plugin, then reactivating. Still no go.

    Thoughts? Any help would be MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!

  14. Gravatar Icon 14 David Stembridge Posted January 22nd, 2012 - 04:29

    Currently, there’s not an easy way to link images within Gallery overview to a URL, instead of using thickbox or other effect.
    There is a hack using NGG Custom Fields; but unfortunately, it gets written over when updating, and disables thickbox on images without URL links.

    Any chance that the issue of giving image thumbnails the option to link to a URL, or default to thickbox?

  15. Gravatar Icon 15 Stacey Posted January 22nd, 2012 - 09:00

    I have just installed the update 1.9.2 of nextGen gallery and it won’t let me upload any pictures. I get the following message:

    ERROR HTTP ERROR: photo name.jpg 404

    Is this happening to anyone else, is it a bug with the new release? I have had no problems uploading in the past.

    I have tried resizing the photo to make it smaller yet it still has the same error. I have also tried different browsers too.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I really need to get product picture onto my website.

    Thank you very much the update. I am planning on using your plugin together with Amazon S3. Do you plan on supporting CDN in the future? If not I might be interested in creating a plugin.

    My analysis of the bug description from January 18th:
    The problem will only be available if a child themes is used.
    In this application the template directory must be implemented in the child.

    Alex (or anyone that can help),

    I’m looking to add social network sharing buttons to share individual photos when they are displayed. Can anyone provide any guidance on how to accomplish this?

  23. Gravatar Icon 23 Patrick Posted January 26th, 2012 - 22:53

    Hello, I have a big problem.
    I don’t know why, on all other sites when picture is portrait, it’s thumbnail is automatically cropped to fit “compact” gallery style.
    I’ve tried couple methods but it never works.
    Landscape thumbnails works good, but portrait not…
    I’d be great if someone shows me what options should I use.
    Screen: http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/7262/prob1v.jpg

    My second problem is that I can’t add a album thumbnail. When I click to add thumbnail, there is circle for a few second but there are no photos.
    Screen: http://img341.imageshack.us/img341/6596/prob2b.jpg

    It’s newest version of NGG.

    Thanks in advance,

  24. Gravatar Icon 24 Moak Posted January 28th, 2012 - 21:09

    I just started with WP and using V 3.3.1 and have just DL NGG 1.9.2
    I have created some Gallery and added images to them. But when I go to add the gallery to a page the window pops up and lets me pick what I want to do Gallery Album Picture but after I click that it wants me to pick witch Gallery Album or pictures that I want to in cert but when I place my arrow on the drop down box the arrow goes away it does not open the spiner comes up and that it just spins. Can any one help ?

  25. Gravatar Icon 25 Olivier Posted January 28th, 2012 - 22:00

    Great job Alex!

    I have tested it and found only two issues:

    One limitation which is : Slideshow restart at the begining on Page reloading. No real Random or Resume option.

    One new bug : The “Scan folder for new images” seams not to work any more.


  26. Gravatar Icon 26 Tutis Posted January 28th, 2012 - 22:59

    Hello, I have two sites that uses NGallery, and now in second one I have just installed it, firstly it worked perfectly, then something happened after I changed some settings in gallery ACP, now when I can see gallery, but can’t open it, because it shows [Gallery not found]

    Page url: http://siauliaicity.lt/?page_id=37

    In acp gallery and photos shows normaly.

  27. Gravatar Icon 27 Tutis Posted January 29th, 2012 - 01:20

    I have found out why gallery was ruining off. I uninstalled it properly, then installed fresh one, created album, gallery, placed gallery to album and uploaded images to gallery… Inserted albums code to page – everything works perfect. But when I changed text [Show as slideshow] and [Show picture list] in ACP, galleries got same error “[Gallery not found]“.

    I solved problem by changing those link title texts in admin/install.php and again properly reinstalling the plugin.

  28. Gravatar Icon 28 Toby Fox Posted January 29th, 2012 - 13:30

  29. Gravatar Icon 29 mindfulcreations Posted January 29th, 2012 - 15:28

    I cannot view the upload image page – It is blank, so I am unable to add images to any galleries. Using WP 3.3.1 and your latest update. Any thoughts?

  30. Gravatar Icon 30 Olivier Posted January 29th, 2012 - 18:52


    I’m wandering where the image Id Counter is stored. I don’t mean the one associated with each image, but the one ready to use for the next-upload. It isn’t the highest +1 because if I delete images in NGG, it still increment as if the delete never happened.

    Does anyone knows?

    I need it to have two sites in parallel with identical NGG pictures IDs.

    Thanks in advance

  31. Gravatar Icon 31 xapient Posted January 30th, 2012 - 19:03

    Bugfix for the missplaced “insertionmarker” (id=”insertionMarker”) and the (id=”dragDropContent”) when sorting gallery items.

    set it’s position argument to “fixed” in ngadmin.css in line 413 and 433

    thx in advance!

  32. Gravatar Icon 32 Leslie Posted January 31st, 2012 - 04:50

    So I just updated NextGen to the 1.9.2 release and now I can not upload any files whatsoever. I am using Firefox 9.0.1 on Vista.

    I hope that someone can fix this or tell me how to fix it. When I get to the upload images page, I can select images and they show up on the page to upload, but clicking the upload button does nothing. As if the button is not attached to any commands.


  33. Gravatar Icon 33 Maurice Posted January 31st, 2012 - 09:24

    I see issues here that look familiar.
    Since a couple of days many of these were also reported on the WordPress forum. Including mine: http://j.mp/yEqwF2
    Look at http://j.mp/zkIX9G as an example.
    Now it’s not possible to insert a picture, gallery or album via the NextGEN-button in a post. Only by typing the code.
    More annoying is that the same happens in adding an image to an album which is not possible!

    Most forum answers are pointing to downgrading to v1.7.4. Please, don’t let me do that!.

    Bin ein großer Fan von deinem Addon!

    Aber 2 Fragen:
    Wie kann ich die Seitennavigation (ngg-navigation) auch über die Artikel anzeigen lassen?

    und zweitens:
    Besteht die Möglichkeit beim nächsten Update das Zurückspringen zum Header zu unterbinden, wenn man ein Bild anklickt?

    Hi Alex,

    My option ‘Scale images to max width 800px or max height 600px’ doesn’t seem to be working for me. The images stay big. Just wondering what you’d recommend to get this feature working for me. There’s nothing special about my WP installation from what I am aware.

    Thanks so much. :)


  39. Gravatar Icon 39 Rustyn Rose Posted February 2nd, 2012 - 00:08

    I’ve been playing with this thing for two hours. I have a gallery created, but nothing I do will put it in a post, or a slideshow widget. Beyond frustrated.

  40. Gravatar Icon 40 Linda Turner Posted February 2nd, 2012 - 04:52

    I installed Next gen gallery 2 weeks ago, purchased monoslider last week, slideshow and pciture gallery now not working, no problem until yesterday. Slidehow just keeps trying to load. Is this a next gen problem or monoslide? Cant use either at the moment, inexperienced user. Please help!!! Many thanks

  41. Gravatar Icon 41 Gavin Posted February 3rd, 2012 - 09:39

    Alex- you have a great plugin but there are some problems with the slideshow in Internet Explorer. Once IE has loaded an image and cached it, it will not reliably generate a load event on the image. So if you do a page refresh on a gallery slideshow you will just see the spinning loading image. It will of course work fine in other browsers.

    As a work around I did this in the loadImage function:

    function loadImage(num){
    // check that stack is not empty and we haven’t alreay loaded 3 images
    if(stackLength > 0 && num <= 3) {
    var img = new Image();
    img.src = stack.shift();
    // wait to append image until the load is complete
    if (jQuery.browser.msie) {
    appendImage(img, num);
    } else {
    jQuery( img ).bind('load', function() { appendImage(img, num); });

  42. Gravatar Icon 42 Drew Posted February 3rd, 2012 - 18:47

    Hi Alex,

    One other thing. In the “Manage Gallery” section I’m trying to rotate and image. It says “image rotated” in red letters below the image after I click “update”, but nothing changes.

    I still have all my sites stuck on 1.7.4 because of the problem of the carousel template not working if I use a custom permalink structure of %postname%.

    I have uploaded a test site here with everything up to date, and using the default WordPress theme, just to make sure it wasn’t anything in my theme causing the problem:
    Notice that if you click on any of the thumbnails, the large picture doesn’t change. And yes, I have done the ‘update your permalink structure one more time’ (several times in fact). It seems the only way to get the carousel to work is to change my site’s permalink structure which is not an option with sites that have already been live for quite a while (and really, the default WP permalink structure is lousy SEO-wise).

    No matter how many times I ask, either here or on the WordPress forums, I can’t get any answer to this, or even an acknowledgement that the problem exists. I have a whole bunch of sites depending on this, and would be happy to pay for a premium support service if it would mean getting the problem fixed, but you don’t seem to offer that option.

    I’m really at the end of my tether with this. It’s been a fantastic plugin, but if this can’t be fixed, I’m going to have to find another plugin to use :-(

  44. Gravatar Icon 44 Patrick Chuprina Posted February 5th, 2012 - 17:36


    I am creating a site to sell my photographic imagery. In it I’m using nextgen gallery. On this lovely Sunday morning I have been working on speeding up what is accomplished so far.

    Can I limit the downloading of Nextgen to only the specific pages containing the gallery? I noticed in a speed test the files were being downloaded on the front page were the files were not needed. I know other plugins can do this.

    Any help, guidance or answers would be greatly appreciated.


  45. Gravatar Icon 45 Dave Were Posted February 5th, 2012 - 23:43

    I’ve just upgraded WordPress and NextGen to the latest versions. Only problem, so far, is…

    On a gallery page
    displaying 7 galleries if I click on say page 4 of a gallery, all galleries move to page 4

  46. Gravatar Icon 46 Bill Rowe Posted February 6th, 2012 - 07:03

    I had everything working then all of a sudden, it started to not let me upload pictures to a gallery. Next thing I know I look in Manage Gallery and there are no pictures displayed. I looked at the Gallery directory and the specific galleries and all of the files are there. I tried import gallery with no luck, deleted the gallery directory via ftp and tried to load the pictures again. All with no luck.

    Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. I liked the plugin for the very short period that it actually worked.


  47. Gravatar Icon 47 Tom Brantigan Posted February 7th, 2012 - 16:36

    Question: I see that there is ownership of galleries but I can’t find how to have ownership of albums. I want my users to create their own album and from there on, add galleries to that album but I don’t want them to be able to mess with other’s albums.

    Am I missing a configuration somewhere? This is the only thing that is preventing me from going live with the application but it is a show-stopper if I can’t have album ownership.

    Thanks in advance for your help. I have tried the forums but haven’t gotten any responses.

    I have issues with inserting singlepic into posts.

    Ever since the update all inserted pics using singlepic eg:

    [singlepic id=652 w=600 h=421 float=]

    displays the ‘error: file not found’ image.

    Nothing in the back end has changed, the gallery view still works, the lightbox to fullsize image still works and loads …

  49. Gravatar Icon 49 Megan Posted February 9th, 2012 - 02:18

    OK, so I’ve just figured out that it works if the gallery is on any page other than the home page, and it also works if I put it in a post and have my home page show posts. It just doesn’t work if it’s on the home page when that is a static page.

    So as you can see it is broken here:

    But if I put the same gallery on an internal page it works:

    Maybe this information can help you pinpoint the problem?

But when I put shortcode code of my album (and in album I put two galleries), I can see two galleries on page but when I click on one of them, it doesn’t show me images in gallery.

    My problem is that i cannot create more than 8 thumbnails in one turn. Error message is:


    You don’t have permission to access /blog/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php on this server.”

    Memory increasing by uncommenting the code line in the “gd.thumbnail.inc.php” file did not fix this issue. Any idea?

  56. Gravatar Icon 56 Jos Klever Posted February 13th, 2012 - 13:18

    One of my clients asked me how she could rename images within WP, without deleting and uploading again.

    I found the plugin Rename Media (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/rename-media/), which does exactly what she wants, only not for images in NextGen Gallery! :-(

    Does anyone have an alternative for this or better: can this be implemented in NextGen Gallery?

  57. Gravatar Icon 57 Sierra Posted February 15th, 2012 - 04:46

    Is there anyway to fix this problem that me and others are having? Once I updated my wordpress and nextgen gallery…the UPDLOAD images photo is absolutely BLANK. No errors…just NADA is coming up. The only way I can add stuff is by uploading photos in the correct folder via ftp and then going to EDIT albums..which still comes up. Please let me know how to fix this because this method is highly inconvenient.

  58. Gravatar Icon 58 Laure Posted February 15th, 2012 - 19:38

    I have some problems with Thumbnail resizing. When I resize/crop manually some of the thumbnails of my album (in the administration panel) to make them look better, it creates blank spaces in the gallery page every 4 or 5 pictures.
    When I regenerate all the thumbnails of the album, the problem disappear.
    Sorry for my english, I hope you understand my problem and will be able to fix it in the next versions.
    Thanks for your job, this gallery plugin is wonderful.

    anyone got solution for this..

    thanks… =)

  60. Gravatar Icon 60 Leslie Posted February 21st, 2012 - 01:28

    I wanted to come back and state that my issue is actually a non-issue. My hosting provider told me they had increased the upload size to 4M but in reality they had not. So my pictures were too big to be uploaded and the Flash uploader did not give me any kind of error message to that effect. When I tried to upload one at a time, that is when I was notified that was the issue. Just wanted to put this out there for others that may be searching to why the Flash upload feature does not appear to work.

    hi there.
    i have about 20 galleries i made with my on my site with NextGEN gallery 1.8.4. it’s a great plugin. i am trying to upgrade it to version 1.9.2 so the galleries will work with WPTouch.
    i used wordpress version 3.1.4
    I cannot seem to figure out how to upgrade the plugin. There is NO upgrade button on the plugin and there is no auto upgrade. I tried checking the box for the plugin on the plugin dashboard and selecting upgrade under bulk actions but it said “this is the latest version of this plugin” for NextGEN gallery 1.8.4
    i tried installing version 1.9.2 while having 1.8.4 still installed to see if it would override the old version, but it said the installation failed.
    i don’t want to lose the 20 galleries i have already made. is there any way to upgrade to version 1.9.2 without uninstalling 1.8.4 and losing all my work?
    thank you kindly.

  62. Gravatar Icon 62 greg Posted February 26th, 2012 - 18:45

    Excellent. Just saw new 1.9.3 is out.

    It fixed my problems from last update.


  63. Gravatar Icon 63 Manu Posted February 27th, 2012 - 05:59

    Sorry… can’t seem to copy and paste the code in here… anyhow, I basically substituted ImageURL with link…

  64. Gravatar Icon 64 Jane Posted February 28th, 2012 - 01:02

    I just upgraded to 1.9.3 and my wp-estore galleries which have worked beautifully for 3 years are now completely screwed up. The captions are a mess, and the lightbox link is showing.


    Well…I turned off the Lightbox effect to at least get the display remotely working, but I really don’t know what to do other than role the site back.

    Related problem on the migrated site:


    The gallery display isn’t working at all. Everything is just in a line down the page, and the first line of text is beside rather than below the image. I can’t even see where ngg-gallery formatting is being called at all.


  65. Gravatar Icon 65 Max Posted March 3rd, 2012 - 21:36

    Excellent plugin! However, I’ve noticed when trying to set an image as the “Featured Image” (using the 2011 theme), through the NextGEN Gallery the image does not display above the post. Instead, I have to upload “From Computer” the image, and then it displays properly above the post.


  66. Gravatar Icon 66 Debbie Posted March 3rd, 2012 - 23:20

    since recent upgrade of nextgen, this site’s slideshows just “SPIN”. http://www.paintedhorsesllc.com/site/test as an example. I’ve tried everything listed on the support forums, and my host provider has checked things out from their end.


  67. Gravatar Icon 67 Kola Posted March 4th, 2012 - 10:47

    I’d like to thank you very much for providing such a great plugin.

    I got a problem with nggallery permalinks. I have changed my link structure to permalinks but can’t access my album pages anymore. Here is my structure:

    - Overall album containing the albums below
    - album 2007 (containg galleries)
    - album 2008 (containing galleries)

    I have inserted the “overall” album on my photos page. When trying to access “/photos/nggallery/2007″ it says “album not found”. But when trying to access a gallery directly (e.g. “/photos/nggallery/2007/album-name”) I’m getting the correct gallery.

    Why am I not able to access the albums? What is wrong with my permalinks and how could I fix this problem? (I have already updated the permalink structure)

    Thank you very much!

    I had to roll back to 1.9.1. after up grading to .3 (the day of release)my pages would constantly crash with flash errors. I could not find out which plugins were not playing properly so I just manually removed .3 and loaded .1 I removed 3 other gallery related ones before fixing it with the removal of .3

    I also had the album not found error. I apologize for not recalling the exact fix, but I found during the update the links had all been changed. I thought I just refreshed the permalinks, after first trying to manually fix them all.

  69. Gravatar Icon 69 Baeldaeg Posted March 6th, 2012 - 15:11

    About the tagcloud: it displays only a maximum of 45 tags in the cloud. This can be easily fixed in your code (as I have mentioned earlier via twitter) via the following change in nggfunctions.php, nggTagCloud() function:

    $defaults = array(
    ‘smallest’ => 8, ‘largest’ => 22, ‘unit’ => ‘pt’, ‘number’ => 0, // 45, [2012-01-16: remove limit (maximum nr. of. tags)]
    ‘format’ => ‘flat’, ‘orderby’ => ‘name’, ‘order’ => ‘ASC’,
    ‘exclude’ => ”, ‘include’ => ”, ‘link’ => ‘view’, ‘taxonomy’ => ‘ngg_tag’

    The 45 is replaced with a 0, which denotes no limit.

    Just updated and it’s working a treat but how do I get rid of the ‘Show as slideshow’ text?

    Managed it before but just can’t seem to get rid of it this time.

  71. Gravatar Icon 71 Valerie Lancaster Posted March 7th, 2012 - 21:43

    This is a site that I created for a client that WAS WORKING PERFECTLY. The Client took over the management – and was excluding a photo – and look what happened. Not sure whatelse they ‘tweaked” http://www.primovision.com – click on any gallery.
    I have this with WP-eStore as the shopping cart. In the photo galleries themselves the all the photos don’t show up – but are little red Xs. But when I look via FTP the file and photos are there.


  72. Gravatar Icon 72 grem Posted March 9th, 2012 - 17:43

    I used the 1.9.3 version andin Firefox, I’ve no problem, but in IE 8, my gallery is shown like that :


    Any idee ?


  73. Gravatar Icon 73 webbrewer Posted March 10th, 2012 - 02:22

    When I use the NG insert tool for a single pic, only the last 50 or so pics in the galleries show up in the drop down.
    WP 3.3.1
    Theme is from newwpthemes – Slated v3.
    Ultimate Tinymce is installed in case that’s relevant.

    Hi Alex,
    lot of bugs to fix here (-;
    I have WP 3.3.1 and installed nextgen 1.9.2 then the update alert appeared and so I did. I created a gallery and uploaded pix. Now I don’t have ANY ACCESS to the complete dashboard. I see the dashboard but can’t klick on posts or sites or adjustments or whereever. It only shows

    Hi again,

    now I deleted 1.9.3 to check out with 1.9.2. Now I cant even activate Nextgen. It shows Fatal Error again but now with another location:

    /wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/lib/shortcodes.php on line 120

    doesn’t feel good to see such results when you try out an everywhere recommended plugin for the first time )-8

    Is it possible to make one album or gallery with 3 column and the other with one?

  81. Gravatar Icon 81 Christian Posted March 17th, 2012 - 06:48

    Hi Alex,

    first of all – great Plugin. We love it! Only one thing I can´t solve. I display 20 Images (e.g. out of 40) on the first page (BlogPage) If I start the gallery it stops exactly at 20 Images, regardless if there are more in the Gallery. You have to click on Page 2 to see the others. How to solve?


  82. Gravatar Icon 82 Marcus Tibesar Posted March 17th, 2012 - 22:09

    Hello Alex,

    I recently installed the NextGen Gallery plugin to my 3.31 site.

    I have added the following album code to a new Post located at http://tibesar.com/2012/03/10/phillip-john-and-candice-brown-tibesar-photo-album/ :

    [album id=1 template=extend]

    When you select the listed gallery link “PJT Boise Zoo” it does not display the 6 thumbnails – it just displays a new Post with no thumbnails in it.

    Why aren’t my selected galleries appearing please?

    Thank you so much!

  83. Gravatar Icon 83 jedeso Posted March 21st, 2012 - 02:21

    why dont my images center on the page??? using latest next gen, with wordpress theme weaver 2.

  85. Gravatar Icon 85 nightmair creative Posted March 24th, 2012 - 03:18

    Have used Next Gen for years – the old version works fantastically on my photo site but the new version 1.9.2 is not working at all. I created an album, but when I try to add it to a page or post, the popup window wont show any albums at all. Is there a way to download the old version for my site until the bug has been worked out?

    Gallery is working just fine except for one little issue and I don’t see any settings to change it. If I have photos that were taken vertically, they still show all stretched out in a horizontal format. Is there a way to change that so that the photo will show as it should in either a vertical or horizontal format. thanks so much!

  88. Gravatar Icon 88 onerock Posted March 29th, 2012 - 01:22

    Does anyone know of a way to filter the tagclouds to reference the specified gallery images only? Something like [tagcloud id=844]

    I would love to have this feature! I have over 800 galleries that would have tags that would only pertain to the gallery the cloud would be in. I am so interested in this feature that I would be willing to pay for it. :)

  89. Gravatar Icon 89 onerock Posted March 29th, 2012 - 01:24

    I neglected to put in my previous post that this is the absolutely greatest gallery plugin there is! I have found nothing that even comes close when I embarked on building the website.

  91. Gravatar Icon 91 Alison Posted March 31st, 2012 - 15:31


    Does anyone know why I can’t upload any images using the NextGEN gallery? I keep getting a http status 400 error message. I have made the file writable using 777.

    I can only drag and drop them into the folder using ftp.

    when i found no better gallery i delete my first wordpress use and start another CMS…

  93. Gravatar Icon 93 Sam Munro Posted April 3rd, 2012 - 23:21

    I had the same thumbnail generating errors etc mentioned above, I found that a quick fix is to select the files you wish to add to a gallery and create a zip file. Uploading a zip file got me past the errors. Hope this helps.

  94. Gravatar Icon 94 Sam Munro Posted April 3rd, 2012 - 23:23

    Dennis3107, this also confused me a bit, until I realised that you have to first create the gallery before you can select it.

  95. Gravatar Icon 95 Tuviere Posted April 4th, 2012 - 22:54

    Great plugin love it,

    But am having a little big issue:-(

    After installing the NextGen Gallery plugin on my site am having issues with my front page. The main post sliders Text on my front page is now centered aligned. Its suppose to be Left Aligned.

    The thumbnails in the blog list is also been stretched right now horizontally.

    And how do i move the navigation buttons (Next / Prev) from the bottom to the top of the images Slider.

    And how do i Show image description (Text) on the body of the image?

    Thanks again l

  96. Gravatar Icon 96 Brad Archibald Posted April 8th, 2012 - 16:19

    Dennis3107, have you tried uploading photos by going to Add Galley/Images option under Galleries? (not under media) There you have the option to select the gallery to load images into. You need to create the gallery first before you can upload into it.

  97. Gravatar Icon 97 Andrew Bonilla Posted April 9th, 2012 - 15:54

    Hey there, Im pretty excited to get the picture portion of my website up. Hopefully you can help me fix the little error on the thumbnail of the album cover that shows up on my page. If you visit the link http://www.coco.fm/pictures you will see that the thumbnail image is not perfectly centered and is rather dropped a bit. Im sure there is a code within the plug-in editor that would allow me to fix it, im just not too familiar with code. Please help, thank you!

  100. Gravatar Icon 100 Don Grafues Posted April 17th, 2012 - 19:59

    I need to have the contrast between the alt text and background greater when displayed as a slide show. Title text is perfect. How can the alt text be modified so the contrast is greater, even white text would be ok? See the slide show at the bottom of the page at “http://sprarts.org/celebrate-the-arts-2012/.”

    I am not a programmer and so I stumble around best I can. I don’t know where to go for support! I posted this question twice in WordPress Forum but received no response. If this is not the right place, please let me know.


  101. Gravatar Icon 101 Stefan Posted April 19th, 2012 - 15:53

    Hi Alex, seems that your plugin is a cool tool and exactly what I need. Unfortunately I seem to be too stupid to get it running. I activated it, created a NGgallery and added some pics. When I’m no on the page editing site I see the symbol to add a NGgallery. But when I click on “search a gallery” its searching and searching and searching and the “wheel” is running for minutes without any success (no message, just the wheel). What am I doing wrong? Thx for your support, best regards, Stefan

  102. Gravatar Icon 102 Pancho Posted April 20th, 2012 - 11:56

    Hi Alex,

    Thanx for NGG Plugin, I use it a lot and i love it.
    BUt recently I get stock in a situation to use a fixed size for the image showed using the nggallery shortcode.
    I left a tpic in the WP.org forum, hope you can help with some ideas :)



  103. Gravatar Icon 103 Asad Posted April 24th, 2012 - 21:01

    Plz can anyone help Me Urgent…..

    We have downloaded NextGen plugin 1.9.3 and installed and activated it.

    We have created a sub dir of wp-content called gallery and set permissions for full access.

    We are getting the following error when we try to create a new gallery.

    Unable to create directory wp-content/gallery/brunswick!
    Directory wp-content/gallery/brunswick is not writeable !
    Unable to create directory wp-content/gallery/brunswick/thumbs !

    We have checked with the host and the permissions are set for full access and the host tech support has written a php script to confirm gallery folder is full access.

    The host feels the issue is related to NGG referencing the wrong path to the gallery

  104. Gravatar Icon 104 Steve Posted April 25th, 2012 - 19:23

    Pls help! My images used to open in a light box, now they just open in the browser: http://mountainstatebrewing.com/gallery/

    Not sure what happened. I had installed NextGen Optimizer, but then deactivated/deleted – it was then I noticed the problem.

  105. Gravatar Icon 105 Seren2.0 Posted April 26th, 2012 - 07:26

    Hi @ all

    @Asad why did u have to create the gallery subdir by your own? i never had to do this.
    gallery directory permissions should have webserver user access (rwx) for uploading pics/creating galleries.

    I’m still dealing with this problem:

    is anyone able to verify this?

  106. Gravatar Icon 106 Beth Posted April 28th, 2012 - 04:35

    I am having the same problem as Alison – getting an http error and unable to upload any new images but no trouble with any existing images or functionality. The dialogue goes through the motions of uploading and thumbnail creation without a problem, but when I go to the gallery, the new images have no thumbnail and when clicking on them they take me to an http error page. I have tried using different browsers, different operating systems, with/without Flash upload, uploading a zip file – all with the same error. Running v1.9.3 on WP3.3.1. Looks like others on the WP forums are having the same issue. I really love this plugin and rely on it heavily for our image-intensive site, please help!

  107. Gravatar Icon 107 Anita Posted May 1st, 2012 - 10:59

    I too would love to be able to click through to a designed URL when I click on a thumbnail on a page, rather than clicking through to the image source. Please consider this for the update?

    Thanks! Great app, but still learning to navigate it.

  108. Gravatar Icon 108 Petra Leinemann Posted May 1st, 2012 - 16:09

    I really need to be able to click on a thumbnail representing a gallery within an album, and have that open up the album in a lightbox directly – NOT having it reload the page or load up a ‘gallery’ page. The album is far down on a long page of content and if a link reloads the page or loads and album page, the website users (NOT a technical audience) are not going to understand what’s going on. They’ll have no idea they’re supposed to scroll down until they get to pretty much the same place they were before, and then have to click again on the same image to open the lightbox. Seems like a totally unnecessary extra step, and isn’t good for usability.

    The site is ansavic.com.au and the gallery is in “great captures”
    The slide show just blinks once then stops, I ca bring it back by clicking below the slide show link.
    I figure I have done something wrong as the old version I managed to get working well on another site.

    It might interest some people :
    Contact 7 form in its last version seems to break the nextgen gallery flash upload :

    fix :
    in the NextGen file: ngg-config.php

    require_once( WP_LOAD_PATH . ‘wp-load.php’);

    require_once( WP_LOAD_PATH . ‘wp-admin/admin.php’);

    This should do the trick…

    When trying to insert a slideshow from the admin area (“Add NextGen Gallery” button), the dropdown arrow keeps spinning when selected and won’t allow for a slideshow to be chosen. If I manually enter [slideshow id=1] in the HTML, I get the spinning dial when viewing the page in a browser, and slideshow never loads. I’ve tried deleting the plugin and reinstalling again, as well as reloading all images in galleries/albums. http://newviewpainting.com/test/
