    Hi Alex,

    On this page, you mentioned six sample templates you had created:

    I can't find these anywhere. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction?

    Thanks! :-)

    They apparently don't exist as downloadable templates. I don't understand why they are shown off to us but then we have no way to get and use them???

    I know this is kind of old, but if anyone needs help setting up-- I can help (a little)! I put the rounded corner one on my gallery page.

    Tim Gunn says, "Make it work" so I did! Though, it would be nice if someone who KNEW what they were doing made the templates available for the public.

    We need to get the caption under single pick and as I have wasted some time searching this forum (and extremely useless dev homepage - http://alexrabe.boelinger...) so I run into forum posts about templates.

    I found some old posts like "copy file "blah" etc..." but looks like the structure and the file names have changed in nextgen-gallery.
    I can not find any updated documentation on how to create templates.

    http://nextgen.boelinger.com/templates/ I also useless :(

    Thank you for your help

    I've created my own templates starting from those I found on "view" folder.

    I'm using version 1.3.1

    Thought it was just me going mad, spend DAYS trying to find the dam templates, NExtGen is cool, but trying to get everything working how you want is proving challenging.

    One thing, I can get a beautiful slideshow working, but I want it to show captions on each image. I have put the caption text in place (Gallery>Manage Gallery) but no captions show up.

    Any Ideas? Cheers

    Here's how you create your own template:
    - In the directory where WP is installed, go to wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/view/
    - Download "gallery.php"
    - Rename "gallery.php" to "gallery-templatename.php"
    - Inside your theme folder, create a folder named "nggallery"
    - Upload "gallery-templatename.php" to the "nggallery" folder that you just created
    - To use, use this shortcode: [nggallery id=1 template=templatename]
    - That's it! :)

    NOTE: If you are using a theme framework (Thematic for instance) the "nggallery" folder must go inside that folder NOT the child theme folder.

    Have fun!

    I'd have to argue that that's not "it," lol. I am proficient enough in PHP to understand that the steps you provided are what's supposed to happen to get the template to show up.

    My question is how do we create a brand spankin' new template in the first place?

    For example, Web Designer Wall gives us a zip file for the html, image and css files to practice. If I wanted to use the 6_watercolor.html style for my gallery, what do I pull from 6_watercolor.html to put in gallery-watercolor.php to make it show up on my gallery properly?

    After a bit of mucking around, I got it to work...

    Using this page's source code as a base:

    http://nextgen-gallery.com/templates/example-1/

    1. Download this CSS file as save it on your own sever in the wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/css folder as ngg_YOUR_THEME_NAME_HERE.css.

    http://nextgen-gallery.com/wp-content/themes/default/nggallery.css?ver=1.0.0

    2. Download all the images that are referred to in the above CSS file and put them on your own server. For example:

    http://nextgen-gallery.com/wp-content/themes/default/images/round-corner.png

    3. Duplicate the gallery.php file. Rename it gallery-YOUR_THEME_NAME_HERE.php. Edit the source so that it references the CSS style you want. Check this source code for an example:

    http://nextgen-gallery.com/templates/example-1/

    4. Upload this file to wp-content/themes/YOUR_CURRENT_WP_THEME/nggallery

    5. Use this shortcode: [nggallery id=1 template=sample1]

    6. That's it! It should work now! Good luck!

    I have duplicated the "gallery.php" file, but their is nothing to edit in the file to point it for the "ngg_sample1.css".

    I agree, very frustrating. I downloaded the plug-in assuming the "carousel" was built in because of this page http://nextgen-gallery.com/templates/carousel/ , and have been searching the net to see what I did wrong that it's not working. Now I see it's added-on code that is not provided...

    NextGen looked really promising and I was excited to use the carousel on my new site, but I guess I'll have to try another plug-in now.

    The carousel functionality definitely is built into NextGen, at least as of v1.4.3, which is the current version and only one I have tested it in, and it works exactly (and as easily) as described here: http://nextgen-gallery.com/templates/carousel/

    By the way, many thanks to Alex Rabe for his excellent plug-in(s), and for even attempting to provide free support in forums such as these!

    I had the same problem, 'carousel' was not working for me. I found 'gallery-carousel.php' in wp-content/nextgen-gallery/view/ so it was definately installed with nextGEN v1.4.3.

    After an hour or so of messing around and searching Google I found this post about file permissions. I changed permissions of gallery-carousel.php to 755 and now it works perfectly. :)
