[resolved] Nextgen Gallery and Albums (9 posts)

    I am using the NextGen plugin on my website. I'm hoping someone may be able to shed some light on the issue I'm having.

    I have created individual albums that link to the respective gallery page. I have placed these albums in a main album so that they are all displayed on one page, the main photo page. However, I can not get them to display side by side, the way they are in the gallery pages, rather than one single row.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Try adding this to the style.css file

    .ngg-album {
          float:left;
    }

    You may need to also give it a width.

    I did try that first off and set a width of 300px but it didn't work. It seems to be the logical solution but I can't figure out why the style isn't sticking.

    Any other thoughts?

    did you try over writing the current style using the code below?

    .ngg-album {
          float:left!important;
    }

    When adding your album select the compact version. SHould look something like this:

    [album id=2 template=compact]

    CPC - I'm not sure I follow. I added the template=compact to the album shortcode and nothing changed. In the NextGen album settings I don't see any options for different album templates, only the galleries.

    Could you tell me where you can select a compact version?

    rikardo - yes tried that, still nothing. it's strange, no matter what change i do to the .ngg-album, I don't even see the style being applied anywhere looking at the site.

    I would check to make sure your gallery post is calling your css file

    View source and check the path of your gallery

    If its wrong you need to point it to your css or copy the css from plugins the folder your source code is calling.

    Shawnswander - Thanks. I fixed the directory and it's all good now.
