I’m reading every day the forum posts, really. I didn’t answer each day, but I study nearly every request & problem. With Version 1.7.0 I introduced a new auto complete feature, this feature works fine on all of my blogs and test blogs. Unfortunately it also has some side effect, it requires a newer script library then WordPress currently shipped out. So I added this new version manually, but some plugins & themes didn’t handle script calls in the right way.
Very often I need to request to disable other plugins & themes, just to test if the failure is really inside NextGEN Gallery or not. For this purpose I’m introduce now my first version of a plugin health check :
This new tool can be used via the overview menu and it checks for a couple of common problems :
- NextGEN Gallery requires PHP 5.2 or higher, as it uses a JSON function
- A check if a other plugin conflicts with the JSON function (Autocomplete & the slideshow will not work in this case)
- A check for the memory limit of your server
- And it verify if your theme calls wp_head & wp_footer
I’m not sure if it causes false positive results, but it maybe help us all to verify if NextGEN Gallery can run fine on your blog. The new Version 1.7.3 is now available.
