    hi,

    i've just started using WP and the nextGen plugin. It's fantastic so far.

    I'm trying to add breadcrumb nav to my album and galleries.
    i see it's been done here
    http://alexrabe.de/2009/01/09/paged-albums/
    sample http://www.slashgear.com/photos/

    i've added the yost-breadcrumb to try to get this effect.
    but it seem to only work up to the album.
    You are here: Home :: Work

    any ideas on how to make it display the galleries aswell?
    You are here: Home :: Work :: Interactive

    or how to just have the breadcrumb display in the album rather then the entire site like http://www.slashgear.com/photos/

    any help you can offer would be great.

    You can see what i'm talking about at my dev here

    Anyone? I too have hit the wall with trying to get some kind of breadcrumb working with NextGen - I just need to be able to show albums and galleries in the breadcrumb.

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a breadcrumb functionality for the NextGEN Gallery plugin i currently use. Sofar without any luck.

    I tried Breadcrumb NavXT, but it only shows the galleries / albums you put on a new page.

    The problem is, if you have an album page, and click on a gallery shown in it, it doesn't open up the gallery in the page you added&linked it to, but opens it up inside the album' page.

    The functionality i'm looking for can be seen on this page

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    G.

    I found an answer to my problem for having a breadcrumb functionality on my site.

    I overlooked 2 settings in the NextGEN Gallery settings menu:

    Step 1. Activate Permalinks: If you check it, it actually means that a gallery in an album will be referred to the page you linked it to and will not open in the same page as your album. Same goes for subalbums i think.

    Step 2. Deactivate gallery page link: If you leave it unchecked, the gallery or subalbum will not open up in the parent album page, but on the page you linked it to in the Gallery > Manage Gallery > Click on a gallery > Page link to: OR Create new page.

    These are 2 rather confusing options. But i might have read it a couple of times to fast. So 1: checked; 2: unchecked.

    Step 3. Ofcourse you will have to link your album/gallery to a page to have the above 2 steps work.

    To do so: Gallery > Manage Gallery > Click on a gallery > Page link to: OR Create new page.

    -----

    Hope this helps other people who want a breadcrumb for their NextGEN Gallery.

    Cheers,

    G.

    Forgot to mention that I successfully use Yoast breadcrumb for the above explanation.
