Caution and Issues

NextGEN Gallery 2.0.0 contained substantial changes to the plugin structure over the Legacy versions 1.9.x.  This new version builds on those changes, but if you are updating directly from 1.9.13 or earlier, there may be incompatibilities some third-party plugins/extension including mobile apps. If you update and have issues, you can always roll back to 1.9.13 following our rollback guide.

You should, as always but more so, consider back up your site (both server files & MySQL Database).


This is an important update for all NextGEN Gallery users as it contains a performance tweak/bug fix.

  • Fixed: URL generation for imagebrowser pagination links

  1. i ve been missing the language file changelog. After last update to 2.0.30 .mo &.po is outdated.

    1. Once all major conflicts are resolved we plan to work with the community to have the languages updated.

  2. i’ve already update to 2.0.30 and it give me warning about base64..and now i couldn’t use the plugin.. 🙁

    1. We don’t encrypt the code so there must be a security plugin or some odd conflict going on. Please submit a bug report so we can diagnose what’s happening.

  3. I upgraded from 1.9.x to 2.0.x and the most is working. However I’m missing pictures in RSS Feed. I’m able to read “◾Changed: Displayed galleries are no longer rendered in RSS Feeds”. However, is there a way to enable this – its a must have for me.
