It took me a long time to figure this out so I thought I'd share my experience. Maybe someone can verify or benefit.
NextGen is a popular gallery plugin. With the Plus or Pro versions, which have features you need, there is a second plugin called NextGen Pro.
With NextGen Pro activated, you can't add DMS sections, the DMS2 GUI just doesn't let you drag them. However, you can work with the sections that are already on the page.
With NextGen Pro DE-activated, its functionality breaks but you can add sections (e.g., ones containing the galleries you're creating).
Bottom line, workflow is
- leave the regular NextGen plugin activated
- deactivate the NextGen Pro plugin to add DMS2 sections
- reactivate the NextGen Pro plugin to configure your galleries and publish the site
Hope this helps.
I recently upgraded Wordpress to 4.0.1 and DMS to the latest version. I also updated to the latest incarnation of the NextGEN Pro product, but now, having done all these changes, I don't see anything but white background on my home page, instead of a nice pro slideshow gallery.
I contacted NextGEN and they said:
Has the call to <?php wp_footer(); ?> added directly before </body>"
Is anyone able to help?
I have put some images in the rotating banner at the top (the iSlider) as well as some title and text. How can I move or adjust the size/location of the title and text? It currently displays in the center and it’s very large. I would like to make it smaller and move it toward the bottom of the image. Do I need to insert custom CSS and if yes, where would I do that? Thank you.
I inherited our website admin duties when our web design company went out of business, so I apologize in advance for my lack of technical expertise. The NextGen Gallery is not loading in our carousel section on one of our pages. It has been deactivated and reactivated but it still doesn't work. I see this message: "The plugin for the selected carousel mode (NextGen-Gallery or FlickrRSS) needs to be installed and activated."

Having issues with DMS and NextGen PRO. The plugin works partially, when I try to insert a gallery into a post I have no options for gallery layouts etc. This has been an issues for months now and since NextGEN Gallery was so robust and popular I though you would have come up with a fix by now. How can this issue be resolved. I have paid for both products (DMS and NextGEN Pro) because they give me the functionality that I want, need, and expect when paying for something. I am not interested in losing functionality with either product I pay for. How can these issues be resolved.
