Why are my photo galleries not opening up in a lightbox after I move my site?

This is often due to the URL paths to the CSS and JavaScript files used by the Lightbox Effects not being changed to relevant addresses based on the new site. This article will help sort out this issue if that is the case: Why are my galleries not opening up in a lightbox?.

Do you have documentation or tutorials?

Yes. See NextGEN Gallery Documentation.

Will this gallery plugin work with my theme?

Yup, NextGEN is a popular and well-established WordPress gallery plugin, and has been for a long time. It will work well with most other themes and plugins in the WordPress ecosystem.

Are the photo galleries flash based?

Nope, we use no flash elements.

Are the galleries mobile friendly?

Yes, we’ve put a lot of work into this and, NextGEN Galleries are compatible with phones and tablets, inluding Android and iOS operating systems. All photo galleries are also responsive, so galleries look good on diverse screen sizes. NextGEN Pro also includes a full screen, responsive Pro Lightbox with mobile gesture support. It’s great for viewing photos on mobile devices.

What is the difference between a gallery and an album?

In simple terms, Albums are collections of galleries. So Galleries contain your photos and Albums contain your Galleries. Albums act as links and placeholders to quickly and easily navigate your galleries. Galleries will actually display your images.

Can I upload multiple images at once?

Yes, you can batch upload entire photo galleries at one time.

Can I password protect galleries?

Yes, WordPress allows you to password protect pages by default – which includes all photo galleries and content for the entire page. Password protection of pages can be turned on and off at any time, with just a few clicks.

Can I add a watermark to the my photos?

Yes, you can add text or image watermarks to your gallery images.

Can I crop photo thumbnails?

Yes, each thumbnail image can be individually adjusted to suit your needs.

Is there pagination for photo galleries?

Yes, you can use pagination when displaying thumbnail galleries. And you can adjust the amount of photos to be shown on a page at any time.

Can I customize the lightbox?

Yes, the lightbox can be configured with multiple options directly from the Dashboard, and there are multiple CSS styles which can be applied and modified as well. If you want even more options, consider upgrading to NextGEN Pro and useing the NextGEN Pro lightbox.

Can I add HTML to photo captions?

Yes, caption areas are fully HMTL capable.

Can I add an external links to galleries?

Since the captions are fully HTML capable, you can add external links and any other type of mark up you wish.

Is NextGEN Gallery available in foreign languages?

Yes, our WordPress gallery plugin has been translated into dozens of languages – click here to find out more.

There's a lot of great coding here that makes the galleries extremely usable once you get the hang of their approach. BUT... NextGEN Gallery insists on putting marketing updates and pleas for ratings at the top of your Dashboard. While this might be an excusable form of spam on your precious screen space, it cannot be disabled for YOUR visitors who have any kind of dashboard use (Authors, Contributors, Editors, Subscribers) ... as such THEY are subjected to NextGEN's invasive ads. The support team was engaged, prompt and direct about the situation, describing it as a "WordPress feature." (FWIW, none of my other WordPress plugins behave in such an invasive manner, so feels more like a bug than a feature.) Sure, users can dismiss the notices - after reading them. Or you, as Admin, can log in to EVERY new user account and dismiss this dribble before they get there ... either way this is how NextGEN is wasting our precious time and attention. Reaching beyond a plugin's user to reach that users' own website visitors - and posting confusing and totally irrelevant advertisements to your own traffic base, with requests for a rating (!), etc., is beyond poor web etiquette. Well, they insist on asking for a rating over and over again, so here it is. 🙁

If you use the Astra wordpress theme with NextGen Gallery, then your site becomes unusable. Currently trying to work out how to exit both the plugin and the theme. Have asked support on both sides to resolve the conflict between the two of them for months and neither is willing to sort it out
