Alex, I think I understand the purpose of the "page link to" field but it seems to not be working. My expectation is that clicking on the respective gallery will take you to the page you assign, rather than pass parameters in the URL. But I am not getting this behavior to work.
For example, check album at link below
Click on first gallery takes user to
Instead of taking them to
...even though I select that gallery "page link to" the 'fairytale' page. You can see that I have made those pages available in the menu bar at the top of the page.
I do not see any behavior change at all if I go to the plugin's Manage Gallery, go to the Fairytale gallery and select a different page from the "Page Links to" drop-down.
The main negative consequence is the little breadcrumb navigation above the gallery becomes useless. Particularly in a deeply nested album breadcrumbs would be very useful to keep evidence of where you are and how you can move 'up' in the nested hierarchy.
I have latest version of the NextGEN Gallery and WordPress.
Am I missing something? If this is not how I am supposed to use the 'Page Link To', is there another way to achieve what I need - clicking on a gallery will show the gallery in its page and the URL show that page.
