Photoswipe for NextGEN Gallery

NextGEN Gallery navigations adapted for iPhone, Android and Blackberry: pinch to zoom, swipe to navigate, auto-rotate.

How is the standard effect (Shutter, Thickbox...) prevented when using Photoswipe?

The javascript added when a mobile browser is detected does two things:

  • a) Fire the Photoswipe viewer when you click on a image

  • b) Remove the default additional HTML markup added in the "Link Code Line" of the Effects tab in NextGen Gallery Options

That way, the standard defined effect won't fire when Photoswipe is used. Please don't change the markup, or two viewers may fire at the same time.

If you absolutely need to change the "Link Code Line", change the ngg-photoswipe.js to remove the specific markup you add.

Can I use WPTouch with this plugin?

No, sorry, this plugin DOES NOT WORK WITH WPTOUCH.

Will the image descriptions show?

Yes, the description will show behind the title, if the image has one.

Is there any menu page to change the default Photoswipe options?

No, sorry. But you can edit the ngg-photoswipe.js file to achieve what you want.

When will be my favorite viewer also adapted to use Photoswipe when using a mobile browser?

When it's done.
