nextgen-gallery-newsOn Friday we released a minor update to NextGEN Gallery. Unfortunately 2 of the lightboxes included in NextGEN Gallery had non-GPL compatible licenses, so in continuing our plugin optimization we decided to remove both jQuery Lightbox and Highslide from the plugin. If you are using either of those please note that the plugin will automatically default to the Fancybox lightbox.

This update also fixes an issue which broke compatibility with FooBox.

Backup Before Upgrading

Please consider backing up your site (both server files & MySQL Database) whenever updating plugins.  Here are some backup recommendations.


Download NextGEN Gallery from or visit the Plugin page in your WordPress admin area to utilize the auto-update feature.

Changes in 2.0.74:

  • Changed: Removed jQuery Lightbox and Highslide due to incompatible licensing with GPL
