NextGEN Gallery
[Show picture list] shows up instead thumbnails (3 posts)

    I've installed nextgen gallery on two other sites and it worked great. Fantastic product!
    However, on a third site I've installed it and added a few images to a gallery, installed the link on a page and now all that shows up is
    [Show picture list]
    instead of the thumbnails. I can click on that link and then see my thumbnails, but I don't think the average viewer should need to know to do that.

    Have I set up something wrong? I don't believe I did anything differently on this site.

    One thing: I do see this on the nextgen general options tab. So I followed the instructions to download the player and upload it, but nothing changed.
    The path to imagerotator.swf is not defined, the slideshow will not work.
    If you would like to use the JW Image Rotatator, please download the player here and upload it to your Upload folder (Default is wp-content/uploads).

    Thanks!

    So did you add the path to imagerotator when you uploaded it to your server?

    If not you will want to give an absolute path. Like this, http://yourdomain.com/wpfolder/wp-content/uploads/imagerotator.swf were wpfolder is the name of the directory in which you placed your WordPress install.

    I just had one setting wrong in my options. I solved it this way:
    Gallery > Options > Gallery Tab
    for "Show First" I needed to check "thumbnails" instead of "slideshow".
