NextGEN Gallery Voting
[resolved] making it look nice (8 posts)

    I am trying to use the nextgen gallery voting option to make a photo contest where people can vote for their favorite image. Via the FAQ, I found the code that needed to be inserted to activate the per image voting. My gallery looks terrible and I know that there are ways to fix the styling but I have no idea how or where to do that.
    This is what my gallery currently looks like:

    Hi mukherjeeprem
    It's all in the CSS. I suck it myself, but there are plenty of classes and ids where styling might be needed.

    yes, i'm aware that it's possible to do, i'm trying to find someone that's done it that can help. this seems to be a popular plugin so i'm surprised that it is required to modify code to make it look good.

    is there anyone that's done this already where i can copy your css?

    I am trying to do this too.

    Went into the CSS changed the position left to center for example, but nothing changes.

    In my case the stars are alligned left and the descriptions centered.
    Further more there is too much spacing between the images in the gallery and the voting stars.


    It would be great if there was a tutorial or explanation on how to influence the css styling.

    I am trying to make the star rating work with my 'grid' gallery.

    How can I get the photos to line up correctly? They are staggered down to the right instead of inline. They were fine before I added this plugin.

    I usual put the voting tag right before the .ngg-gallery-thumbnail-box div closes.
    But this is just HTML/CSS. You are free to position and style this however you want :)

    No offense, but it's probably really easy for you... but I've been trying (for hours) and can't fix my issue. Any way you can tell me exactly 'where' to put 'what'?

    As I said in my last message, I normally put it before the .ngg-gallery-thumbnail-box.
    Here is an example of the altered gallery.php, with the voting form there: http://pastebin.com/yTXARvVb
