Rewrite rules…

It’s a real nightmare to release a new version of NextGEN Gallery. One the one hand new features , on the other hand every upgrade should run smooth… If you a one-man-show this could causes a real headache. I’m really did my best for each and every upgrade, but it’s impossible for an installation base of 50.000 – 100.000 blogs. With Version 1.8.0 I modify the permalink structure of the gallery links, which is for the future more SEO friendly (I really hate SEO optimisation)… but I missed to test some custom structures (i.e. /%postname%/ or /%category%/%postname%/ ). So the new feature will break the plugin for this structures. Sorry, for any trouble this caused. I’m looking into this and hope to fix it in a couple of weeks…

In the meantime you have three options :

a) Stay on Version 1.7.3, which should be fine (download here)
b) Change your permalink structure ( Could be a SEO issue )
c) Deactivate just the Gallery permalinks (See gallery settings)

Update : Should be fix with Version 1.8.3


NextGEN Gallery V1.8.0 released

I’m happy to release the next version oy NextGEN Gallery. There are some improvements for the backend menu and a rework of the permalink structure. Please noticed the new setting in the option menu, where you can change the main slug for the permalinks.

More over I’ve added the support for XML Sitemaps for images. You just need to install the great plugin from Yoast : WordPress SEO

I did my best to test the plugin, please report (as always) any problems at the forums. Thanks !

NextGEN Gallery 1.8.0 Beta 1

Whoa… long break till the last release. I’m currently heavily busy with my daily work, so I need to slow down a bit the development the last months. Anyway something is changed under the hood. I’ve finally added the new permalink structure, as the current is ‘not-soooo-url-friendly’ and I’ve added a sorting option for the manage gallery page. Hope you like this improvement…

My next vacation is in front of me, so I decided to release a first second beta, that you are able to test this new features. I’m happy for any kind of feedback about this version.

XML Sitemaps support

After a very very long break, I’m starting to work on the next version 1.8 of NextGEN Gallery. At first I’m looking for XML Sitemaps support. This should help for a better search results about images. I need to contact some author of Sitemap plugins, so I didn’t need to rewrite the same code again.

What is your preferred Sitemap plugin ?
