    I want to use this plugin to put social buttons on my nextgen gallery. The social buttons are not displaying. Are there certain settings that need to be checked (besides "place in content" check box?

    The buttons should appear on page and post content, so if you're using an NGG shortcode in your content to display an album/gallery, the social buttons should be there.

    If you put NGFB in debug mode (checkbox at bottom of page) and give me the URL, I can have a look.

    Thanks,

    js.

    HI Jsmoriss,

    Thank you for your prompt response. I have checked debug mode. the link is

    The buttons due display on the page, but I was hoping this would add the buttons to the pictures themselves.

    Thank you!

    When you click the Facebook or Google share buttons, you can select which photo to share. I have in mind to do something fancier for Pinterest, that will be in another few weeks.

    You have some configuration issues though...

    - Jigoshop is also producing some (not very good) Open Graph headers. You should disable those.

    - NGFB is unable to collect images from your post because they are too small. This explains why the logo for your website is coming up when you click the Facebook or Google share buttons.

    Have a look at the FAQ section "Why does NextGEN Facebook OG ignore the <img/> HTML tags in my content?".

    And you should probably have a look at the "Stylesheets" section on the Other Notes tab, unless you like the un-styled default look of the buttons. ;-)

    In v3.1.2 (not out yet), I've added support for nextGEN image IDs used in the content, so it should pickup your images, even though the thumbnails themselves are too small. Using the image IDs, I can get appropriately sized image URL from NextGEN Gallery.

    So, keep your eyes open for 3.1.2. ;-)
