I don't want to switch back to 2.0 to show you want happened because I can't have my website, or my clients' website not functioning correctly. Instead of three columns on the gallery page, I had thumbnails all in one column with some of my html code I have for the descriptions under each image showing up.
Under the description for each image of my painting I include my title, media used, price, etc. and use html to make it look right. Like this:
Oil on canvas, 30”x38”
<center><font size="3" face="Comic Sans MS" color="#800000">SOLD</font>
All the sites I listed are currently using 1.9.12 because of the issue I had when I upgraded and also when I installed 2.0 on a new website.
I have this on my Gallery page:
<p style="text-align: center;">Click on the image or title to see all Wendy's artwork.</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">[nggalbum id=1 template=extend]</p>
<span style="font-size: small;">
And each gallery, such as, Architectural, Nature and Landscape, etc. has a page with the coding to show the correct gallery on that page:
<p style="text-align: left;">Growing up in Glasgow, Scotland, Wendy was exposed to a variety of wonderful architecture. She is attracted to the strong angles, contrast in value, and variety of textures, She often contracts the strong linear aspects of architectural form with natural elements nearby. She paints in an expressive style with a strong use of colour.</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Please view Wendy's artwork by clicking on an image to enlarge...</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">[nggallery id=1 template=caption]</p>
As for my nextgen settings,
no slide show integration
JW rotator setting following selected:
show next image on click
show navigation bar
for Effects I have chosen Shutter with the link code line as: class="shutterset_%GALLERY_NAME%"
Hopefully that helps, but if you need more information, just let me know.
