Updates / Changelog
v3.9.2 – December 7, 2018 – Compatibility improvements with Gutenberg and NextGEN
WP galleries created as Gutenberg blocks are now supported by the auto-takeover feature. Auto takeover is now the default for new installations.
NextGEN Gallery auto-take over feature now supports their latest shortcode (as a new option called NG3 shortcode). This includes NextGEN Galleries inserted as Gutenberg blocks.
In some cases, such as with Yoast SEO, JIG would be multiplied in the source code, causing an ID larger than 1 even for the first JIG on a page. It’s due to plugins processing the content as part of the wp_head. This prevented NextGEN album view from working in JIG.
Flickr collections would not include video stills as photos in the counter.
v3.9.1 – September 17, 2018 – Facebook pages fix
Facebook automatic page adding fixed with compatibility with API v3.1

Facebook API v3 is supported with the “create your own app” approach. No app review needed!

No longer using TimThumb in the dashboard for Facebook / Flickr icons. There is no benefit, and it caused infinite spinning loading when TimThumb wasn’t working.

YouTube scraper (RSS) didn’t work due to a change on YouTube.
