How to link to a gallery in a page or post? (4 posts)

    I am trying to link to a gallery from a page.

    example:

    <a href="gallerylink">View Gallery Here

    I simply tried to add class="shutterset_set_1" however that only opens the single image linked.

    Once the link is clicked it opens the lightbox gallery. Can anyone help me with this? Surely there is a way to call the gallery?

    Make sure to select within 'Manage Gallery'

    Create new page: Add page

    Then link to the new page created.

    Otherwise, the shortcode is [nggallery id=#] where 1 is the number of your gallery

    Hi Bozz, thanks for the reply but its not quite what i'm after... I would just like to type a text link in my page or post, and when clicked it opens the lightbox of the gallery its linking to.

    By inserting the shortcode it just automatically displays all the thumbnails which I would like to avoid.

    I am not sure if you can do that without loading the gallery onto the page first. You might be able to hide the thumbnails with CSS, or create a custom template that does this for you. I'm not sure you can accomplish this through an out-of-the-box implementation.
