[closed] I feel stupid! - part 2! (6 posts)

    Can someone please tell me how I can make nextgen gallery show images in posts? I cant get it to work, I have albums, galleries and pictures but I dont understand why there are albums and galleries, I dont understand the difference between the 2 or why they are needed. I am doing this for a charity website so could really do with some help on this, I did have a previous thread but some mod closed it!

    As it stands I just cant get this to work, and seeing how 6 million people have downloaded this with no problems you can see I would feel REALLY stupid about now! I will confess that I did get it working for 1 picture (must have been a fluke) but since then I have had no luck, I also managed to get a couple of picks working in a post but then only 1 image showed on special recent posts and another just said "no thumbnail", seeing as they were both posted/uploadd/added in the same way it all seems a little in-consistant to say the least. For the moment I have had to deactivate and delete as I Just couldn't get it working!

    Ooh many thanks I will take a look, do you know if there is way for the gallery to show different sized pics? At the moment it only shows 1 size ie all pics upload will show as 100x100 px for example, but I would need it to show the actual size of each pic in the gallery. for example some pics are taller than others and at the moment the gallery is cutting their heads off, if I change the height setting then it changes ALL pics that height, i need it to be able to display different sized pics

    Generally, you won't want your images to be different sizes. Galleries look a lot better when the images are all the same size.

    It just happens I wrote a little tutorial of sort about NextGen and thumbnails. It addresses the exact problem you are running into.

    I cleaned it up a bit and posted it on my site.

    I hope you find it useful.
