We’re thrilled to announce that Photocrati has acquired the NextGEN Gallery WordPress plugin!
NextGEN Gallery is the single most popular gallery management plugin for WordPress with over 5 million downloads. The acquisition is part of our effort to consolidate the best WordPress solutions for photographers under one roof.
So with that said, here are some of the plans for the future of Photocrati and NextGEN Gallery:
- improving the user interface
- adding capabilities to manage galleries from within posts and pages
- working with Automattic to integrate with WordPress VIP
- new slideshow, filmstrip and thumbnail displays
- caption and filmstrip styling
- eCommerce capabilities w/ print and price options, digital downloads, shopping cart and PayPal features
- bug fixes and security patches
- build a relationship with the NextGEN Gallery user community through blogging and social channels
Last, but not least - we plan on creating a full integration with the Photocrati theme.
The integration process is very complicated and Photocrati must take into account the needs of existing Photocrati and NextGEN Gallery users. Be assured, they plan to keep the community posted on the progress and with as many details as possible.
Please visit the Photocrati and NextGEN Gallery site announcements for more details.
