NextGen-Gallery Albums Archive (6 posts)

    How can I make a custom page template that automatically shows all my nextgen albums? I'd like to skip the process of manually adding album tags to a page.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    You can use the WP function do_shortcode() within your template to call the album shortcode.

    Hi Andy,

    I am pretty competent with wordpress however I have never come across this do_shortcode{} ...Are you able to post a demonstration?

    I will be forever in your debt as a NextGen Album Archive page is exactly what I am after. :)

    Right so I FINALLY found the solution to this so thought I would come back and let you all know.

    Add: ngg_paged_Galleries
    as a custom field within your wordpress page. And then set the amount of gallerys you wish your album to display per pagination.

    So for example :

    Go to your wordpress Admin
    Go to your gallery page
    Add this to your pages content [album id=1 template=compact]
    Under this you will have a box called 'Custom Fields'
    Add ngg_paged_Galleries to the name field
    and 5 to the value field

    Hope this helps everyone out!

    With thanks to Maurice's comments for the help!
