CMS & WordPress
Haven't upgraded either WordPress or plugin. Plugin was working fine and now basically freezes up my entire computer when trying to add new images to an album.
Is this a known issue or are there any known plugins that could cause this conflict with NextGen Gallery?
I thought it might be a Flash issue, already tried re-installing Flash and disabling the Flash upload and other manual workarounds.
Also, I may not be able to upgrade WordPress or plugin as a fix, so I'm looking for anyone who's experienced this issue and might know the cause and/or solution.
Thanks for sharing these tips. I will try what you have posted.
Very good tips, hopefully if it is another plugin causing a conflict, it's an expendable one. I'll post my efforts in a day or so to help others who may have the same problem.
If you have a lot of active plugins it can be quite a chore. But the best way to trouble shoot is:
1: Temporarily disable all plugins
2: Reactivate the plugin in question, in your case NextGen
3: Does it activate OK? Is it working OK?
- If not try getting a fresh copy or contact the plugin author (or his help forums if they exist)
- if all seems good:
4: Activate one other plugin
5: Test the questionable plugin again
6: Is it still working OK?
- if not, then the last plugin you activated may conflict with it, disable that plugin and go back to step 4
- if all still seems good, go back to step 4
This way you can determine which plugin, if any (it can also be a WP ver or theme issue, or something else) is causing a problem.
There's been times I've reactivated 3 at a time. It's a little faster and when things break I at least know it's one of the last 3 then I do those 1 by 1
Unfortunately, looks like it had to be done the hard way. The plugin needed to be upgraded, this can be difficult if you've made customizations or sometimes you have to upgrade all of WordPress first, which is sometimes very difficult.
So it doesn't look like there's an easy workaround, I also didn't find any plugins that conflicted with NextGen, but that still might be the case with other setups, sorry I can't be of more help, thanks for everyone's help, we're calling this one [SOLVED].
