I just got an email from Scott at Photocrati WordPress Themes yesterday letting me know that my favorite WordPress themes has just purchased my favorite WordPress gallery plugin!
NextGEN Gallery has over 5 million total downloads, 3,600 daily downloads and 26,000 weekly downloads.
know that with numbers like those, the plugin needs some major feature updates. So here are some of their plans:
- 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 – Photocrati
plan on creating a full integration with the Photocrati theme.
