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.
- Activate the plugin and browse to yourdomain.com/wp-admin/?escape_ngg_please=1
- 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
media_sideload_image to recreate your attachment posts.
Compatible with wp-cli.
