Q: Can I import NextGEN Albums?
A: Absolutely! Using Envira’s Albums Addon, you’ll be able to import NextGen Albums as well by following the same steps as above but clicking the Albums tab to import any available NextGEN Albums.
An important thing to remember for importing Albums would be to make sure you’ve imported all of your galleries first or the albums won’t have the right galleries to import.
Q: Why aren’t my galleries importing?
A: You may be trying to import too many galleries at once. The import could be timing out and therefore you’d need to only import a few galleries at a time.
