Escape NextGen Gallery

This plugin will scan through all your posts and pages for the [nggallery] shortcode.

It will loop through all images associated with that gallery and recreate them as native WordPress attachments instead. Finally it will replace the [nggallery] shortcode with the [gallery] shortcode native to WordPress.


  1. Backup!
  2. Activate the plugin and browse to
  3. When you're done you can delete the gallery dir, and the wp_ngg_* tables in your database. Keep the backups though.


  • doesn't work with shortcodes other than [nggallery]
  • doesn't work when more than one gallery on page


@uses media_sideload_image to recreate your attachment posts.

Compatible with wp-cli.
