    I've looked everywhere to find a way of making an album page display the galleries in more than one column in the latest version of NextGEN Gallery. Can anyone tell me how to do this please?

    Goto
    Gallery->Options

    Click the Gallery Tab
    About three options down you should see :

    Number of columns

    Set to 0

    0 will display as much as possible based on the width of your theme. Setting normally only required for captions below the images

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I've tried entering 2 and 3 in place of the zero, but it's made no difference.

    I can't see what could be making the album links break,Firebug shows no stray line breaks or <p> tags between the "ngg-album" divs, and I've even set the width for that style to 30%.

    The url is http://www.beckydavison.co.uk/gallery/ if it helps.

    Did you clear your browser cache after making the change ?

    You can just hold down shift+reload or shift+refresh depending on your browser.

    Doing that will bypass your cache.

    Good luck.

    Yup, Ctrl-F5 several times and cleared cache in Firefox, even looked at it with Opera which has never visited the site before :-)

    A friend of mine is really ace with CSS, I'll see if he can figure it out, I certainly can't!

    Not sure what theme you're using but if it's a child theme, you can modify your stylesheet to change it to 3 columns (I assume that's what you want).

    Add a float:left to the .ngg-album as well as change your width to 31%.

    Because of the border, the 33% width is too large to fit all 3.

    I wouldn't modify the nggallery.css because as soon as there is an update, it will overwrite your changes.

    Thanks Zig, I now have 3 columns, you're a star!

    Yes, it's a child theme, although I prefer to edit the files here rather than on the admin panel so I've always got backups here as well.
