    @navindesigns, "Page link to" is for galleries, not for album.
    If you want that album in http://162.209.105.118/test-album/, you have to physically put it in that page.
    Otherwise you have to explain better what you want to achieve, your galleries at this time work as expected.

    But this site http://www.ajaayswindell.com/pictures is linking these albums to specific pages

    example the first album titles AJAAY AND COMPANY is being linked to this page http://www.ajaayswindell.com/ajaay-and-company

    Exactly
    http://www.ajaayswindell.com/pictures is the album page, that contains 4 galleries
    http://www.ajaayswindell.com/ajaay-and-company is the page of one of those galleries
    It's the same on your site:
    http://162.209.105.118/ is the album page, that contains 4 galleries
    http://162.209.105.118/nggallery/bronze-plaques/bench-tree-and-garden-700-series/ is the page of one of those galleries
    And what you call album are actually galleries.
    Album contains galleries, galleries contains images.

    Ok but on the home page under " Featured Plaques Categories " when you click on one of those thumbnails it stays in the homepage template and opens the thumbnails. I want it to open in its own page instead like a full width template from the theme.

    Sorry if I am not being clear

    You have to create a page, assign it a title, insert the gallery, choose a template from the drop down menu, and publish.
    Then, in manage gallery, link to that page.
    You can also create the page from the manage gallery as well.
    The url to the gallery page will be http://www.yoursite.com/albumpage/gallerypage

    @navindesigns, I forgot to specify that if you don't want /albumpage/ in the URL, just don't assign the gallery page to the parent album page: selecting "basic page" the URL will be http://www.yoursite.com/gallerypage.

    Thanks for all your help Tizz

    On this page - http://162.209.105.118/bronze-plaques/ - It works perfectly fine, when you click on it it goes to a desired page I set up WHICH IS PEFECT

    However on the homepage, here I have the 4 albums under "Featured Plaques Categories" when I click on the first one it stills open in the homepage template and not the page that I set it to go - you can take a look here - http://162.209.105.118/
    the code I am using on the home page is [nggalbum id=1,2,3 template=compact]
