    Hello,

    Is there a way to search in gallery names? I found a plugin (http://alexrabe.de/2010/01/13/search-for-images/) that search in images, but I need something similar for gallery names.

    Do you have any idea?

    Thanks.

    I use a plugin called NextGen Gallery Search. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery-search/

    It's a life saver, currently I have almost 600 galleries and over 13,000 pictures.

    Works great, I have WordPress 3.3.1. The download page says it's compatible up to 2.8 but you should be ok. Enjoy.

    I have added this plugin, but no search box or controls or anything has appeared, so how do you use it?

    @Karen,

    You'll see "Gallery Search" above "Gallery in the sidebar of your WordPress Admin page (left side of your screen).

    When you click "Gallery Search" the NextGEN Gallery Search page will open.

    You'll see your most recent galleries listed, but most important you'll find at the top of the page a search field.

    Now you can search for a gallery. You can type a partial gallery name (in case you forgot what you called the gallery) and the search should find the gallery.

    I have nearly a thousand galleries on my site and this plugin is a life saver when I want to update an older gallery and I forgot the name of the gallery.

    The search in the NextGen Gallery plugin only searches for pictures with your search term in the name of the picture. Which doesn't help when you have twenty thousand plus pictures and you need to edit the gallery

    Extremely useful plugin.

    Good luck.
