    I can’t thank you enough for Nextgen. It’s a masterpiece. I’m so glad to see it moving forward. I’m psyched to test it out this weekend.

    Hello Alex,
    Your job is still great. I like your plug-in and support it with several applications on my website.
    I am using the Version 1.4.3 together with the WP 2.9.1. With this combination I found a problem I never had before (with other Versions)!
    The handling of metadata! My understanding is that with the upload of new metadata the existing data in the ngg_pictures database will be updated! Sometimes I use this function to update description aso based on my original pictures. I load the pictures with the same name via FTP, deled the cache und prepare the new thumb. All of this works fine. Only the upload of the new Meta data does not work!
    It seems for me a bug??

    I tested the bug also with the version 1.5.0.b1 –> same effect!

    There must be a failure happend during your upload. Please ensure that you have overwrite all existing files (better delete the folder first)

  10. Hi.
    New to WP for a couple weeks. What´s the best way to install this beta version?
    I´m using 1.4.3, simply delete all files from this older version and put in the new 1.5.0. Good to go?

    Love the plugin, but I find a major problem with all these photo plugins, that is they seem to stop the photos from being indexed by Google.

    Any advice?

  12. I´ve been trying to get a solution for a question, but I´ve posted days ago on WP support forum for nextgen and no feedback so far, so I´m trying to contact you here.

    Sorry for impatience, but I´m really needing this answered, and maybe it´s quite simple, the topic is in this link:

    Imagebrowser: Alttext of the image shown is caption/description. I´m using various html tags and want to change alttext to be just the title of the image. More details on the forum, with an example.

    Thanks for support.

  13. Ok Alex,
    I´ll keep waiting for some feedback. Thanks.

    A good feature to add would be a bulk option on the manage galleries page that would allow rescanning of all galleries for new images.

  15. I have 2 suggestions to make for NextGen Alex:

    – Tags appearing below an image, just below caption/description text, once clicking on a tag, related images with same tags appear. Guess it would be a dynamic browsing, using this idea…

    – Include an option in NextGen Control Panel to turn on/off the alttext that is the content of “caption/description”. When we have much text and html tags going on in an image description, it can be undesired to have this content appearing as alttex (using imagebrowser this happens, not sure about other viewing options).

    Keep up the good work 😉
