NextGEN Download Gallery

Add a template to NextGEN Gallery that provides multiple-file downloads for trade/media galleries

  1. Install NextGEN Gallery or NextCellent Gallery, and create galleries/albums
  2. Upload this plugin to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  4. Specify the gallery template as "download"

From a gallery shortcode

When using a shortcode to show a NextGEN gallery, you can make it a download gallery by specifying the gallery template:

[nggallery id=1 template=download]

From an album shortcode

When using a shortcode to show a NextGEN album, you can make it show download galleries by specifying the gallery template:

[nggalbum id=1 gallery=download]

NB: NextGEN Gallery 2.0 still doesn't support this functionality, as at v2.0.31; see FAQ for work-around.

From a tags shortcode

The standard nggtags shortcode doesn't allow you to specify the gallery template, so this plugin adds an extended version of that shortcode.

[nggtags_ext gallery="frogs,lizards" template=download]

Or in NextGEN Gallery v2.0:

[ngg_images tag_ids="frogs,lizards" template=download display_type="photocrati-nextgen_basic_thumbnails"]

Requires: 3.2.1 or higher
