NextGEN Gallery
change sort order for galleries in an album (11 posts)

    I'm using WP 3.4.1 and NextGen Gallery 1.9.3 and I'm having issues with displaying the galleries in an album.

    I have selected the Custom order for sort thumbnails on the Gallery tab of Options, I have deactivated all other plugins and tried the different code snippets found in the support boards here and all have the same result.

    When I choose the album on the album page and click and drag to reorder the galleries , then click update and receive the "album updated" message, there is no change in the sort order on the page housing the album.

    I feel like I'm missing something simple, but I can't find it.

    From Manage Gallery, you've choosen a gallery, then click on the "Sort Gallery" button next to the Bulk Action box, drag and drop your thumbs to reorder them and click "Update Sort Order" on the top of the page ?
    It works fine for me with WP 3.4.1 and NextGen 1.9.3 without doing anything more than that.

    Thank you for your reply lolobu, I think I didn't explain my issue well enough. My issue isn't the sort order of photo thumbnails in a gallery, it's the sort order of Gallery cover photo thumbnails in an album. To see the issue:

    From <b>Album</b>, choose the album from the select album dropbox and all the galleries of that album show up in the left box. you can drag and drop the galleries to appear in the album and/or their order, then click Update.

    Unfortunately, that's the part that doesn't work, clicking update doesn't change the order of the galleries in the album.

    I am having this problem, too. I can set the order I would like the images to appear, but, they end up displaying in the decending order of their id number. Is there a way to change the image id number? If not, how to get the images to display in the sort order that I have set up?
    Thanks

    More info:
    I am using nextgen 1.9.3 (latest download).
    No matter how many times I update and save my sort order, NExtgen will ONLY display in descending image ID number order.
    I am using wp3.4

    Yes, I've tried deactivating other plugins and changing to the 2011 theme...no success

    I actually just found that my problem lies with the compact template. If I either use the extend template or no template at all, the sort order works fine.

    I am still having this problem, no matter what theme I try or plugin I remove...you can see the gallery at http://malecare.org/prostate-cancer-art-gallery/
    WARNING...this is a prostate cancer survivors support group site and the images are explicit.

    Has anyone found and answer to sort GALLERIES (not images)? I have tried all the above but can't get anything to stick.
