NextGEN Gallery Optimizer Now Discontinued

Due to the major breaking changes set to be introduced with the Gutenberg editor in WordPress v5.0, NextGEN Gallery Optimizer has now been discontinued.

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.

Kind regards,

NextGEN Gallery Optimizer Documentation


Welcome to the Documentation section for NextGEN Gallery Optimizer.

For instructions on how to install Optimizer, please consult the Installation Guide.

On the first activation of the plugin, you'll be automatically redirected to the settings page, where you can customize any of the defaults to better suit your individual requirements. Additionally, if you're using Optimizer Pro, you'll be given the chance to activate and configure the NextGEN Gallery Deactivator feature, to give your non-gallery pages an extra speed boost.

To return to the settings page at any time in the future, simply navigate to Settings -> NextGEN Gallery Optimizer Basic/Pro in your WordPress admin.

For assistance with setting up and configuring Optimizer after you have it installed, please consult either the NextGEN v2.0 or NextGEN Legacy / NextCellent Gallery configuration guides.
