Valid license holders for Optimizer Pro will continue to receive support if required, but the product has now been removed from sale, in preparation for the release.
I want to say a big thank you to everyone who's enjoyed using the plugin to optimize their sites over the last six and a half years, and wish you all the best for the future.
If you haven't already, get yourself a copy of Optimizer Pro.
After your purchase, you'll automatically receive an email confirmation with a download link. If you don't receive this confirmation email, please contact us.
1. Download NextGEN Gallery Optimizer Pro to your computer
2. Log into your WordPress admin
3. Click Plugins --> Add New
4. Click Upload (in the header)
5. Search your computer for nextgen-gallery-optimizer-pro.zip
6. Click Install Now
7. Click Activate Plugin
8. Click Settings --> NextGEN Optimizer Pro to complete installation.
Note: If your computer automatically unzips your download, you'll need to compress it before you can upload it via the WordPress admin.
On Mac OSX: Ctrl+click the plugin folder --> Compress.
On Windows: Right-click the plugin folder --> Send To --> Compressed (zipped) Folder.
You can also upload Optimizer Pro via FTP, however letting WordPress handle the upload (as detailed above) is much easier, and avoids possible file ownership/permissions issues caused when your FTP user differs from the user your web server is being run as.
Note: If you're upgrading from Optimizer Basic, the Pro version will automatically deactivate the Basic version and you can safely delete it if you wish.
