Wordpress Plugin Broken - Best Alternative?

For several years, I’ve been using an old Wordpress plugin (WP-Smugmug) to display galleries on my website. Sadly, I think the last Wordpress update has finally broken it, and since the plugin hasn’t been updated for years, I’m looking to replace it.

I display my images in Wordpress on a per-gallery basis. Each event (high school sports events) gets its own gallery in Smugmug, and I use the plugin to create a Wordpress post with thumbnails from the gallery. I have looked around and it looks like Photonic Gallery is an option. (I’ve installed it as a stopgap measure.) But because it requires the gallery ID, I’m worried it will stop working eventually, too.

Is there some other way to do this that I’m missing?

    It could be that SmugMug has turned off the API version the plugin uses and instead uses a newer version. I'm currently trying out the plugin Photonic and it seems quite promising.

    I do like Photonic quite a bit.It doesn’t seem to be an obvious memory hog, so I may end up going with that.

    My next step will be to figure out a way to automatically grab the gallery ID number out of my smugmug gallery page. I had some whizbang automation set up using Keyboard Maestro on my Mac that had allowed me to create a Wordpress article with a couple of keystrokes — but those weren’t grabbing the Gallery ID #.
