    How do I control the order in which images for a gallery are displayed when using shortcodes?

    thanks dwallam, but that page does not address the question I asked which was about shortcodes not custom fields

    You can set the sort order of a gallery with NextGEN Gallery options via WordPress admin.

    WordPress admin > Gallery > Options > Gallery (on that page you will have 'Sort options')

    Mind that there is a problem with sorting of the images in current version, it does not work properly:

    You can fix it by installing the latest NextGEN Gallery beta version as mentioned here:

    Direct link to the beta version:

    thanks, thats what I've done as a temporary measure, but it only works if I always want to use the images in the same order. If I want to use the same gallery sorted differently in different places its no help.

    OK i already thought that that was what you were looking for. I can not help you there. Not familiar with a way to sort galleries different on a separate base other then the default sorting set for all in options.

    not to worry, thanks for trying to help! I've worked round the problems by creating a second gallery sorted the way I want with duplicate content! Photocrati don't seem interested in supporting nextgen until they've worked out a separate paid support scheme, and don't seem interested in providing comprehensive documentation.

    Photocrati isn't providing support for the plugin because with over 6 million free users it doesn't make sense. A premium version is under development (details and roadmap ...) which will include support from us.

    Good thinking! Just create a new gallery and then add the same images once more but named in a way to achieve the wished for alternate sorting.

    I stopped drinking coffee... perhaps i should start doing that again ;-)
