NextGEN Gallery
[resolved] Using Minimatica Theme, How do I insert a NEXT GEN gallery thats already created (4 posts)

    Hello-

    I already successfully created a gallery of photos using the NEXT GEN GALLERY plug-in. But nowhere can I find the "INSERT" button that enables me to insert the gallery I made into the post I am editing. I am using the MINIMATICA theme.

    Can someone please help me? I've seen a NEXT GEN slideshow in a Minimatica theme but I am stomped mid-way (getting the gallery to show in my post) into making it work for me.

    PLEASE help.

    Appreciate your kindness.

    Thank you.

    I am having the SAME EXACT problem!!!!! Please HELP us!!!

    I'm using the Chameleon theme and there is no where to publish or insert the wonderful gallery I created using the Next Gen Gallery Plug-in!

    I tried everything recommended in the troubleshooting and nothing has helped.

    If you edit the post/page you wish to insert the gallery onto, select the "Visual" tab then click on the 'Add NextGEN Gallery' icon (it looks like two screens on top of each other, usually the right hand icon).

    That'll pop up a menu to enable selection of the gallery and style you want.

    Hi TOSHI and Gabriella,

    I did what you said (been doing that actually) but unfortunately there is no icon ("'Add NextGEN Gallery' icon") that pops up.

    HOWEVER, I scoured the internet and found this link in NEXT-GEN's site:
    http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/demos-of-all-nextgen-gallery-types/

    Find the shortcode of the style of slideshow or gallery you like then copy and paste into your post/page in the edit mode. Make sure you paste the shortcode into the Visual tab.

    An ex. of a shortcode listed there is :
    "[ nggallery id=X ] without space before/after brackets."

    So copy/paste this ---> [nggallery id=X] into your Visual tab. X is the id no. of the gallery you created. You can find it in Gallery/Manage Galleries. Click Update, then View.

    I am finding the NEXT-GEN GALLERY plug-in behaves differently in different platforms. I am using CHROME and MINIMATICA THEME. So good luck. This works for me in the absence of that "INSERT" button. Good luck, Gabriella.

    Thanks for your input though Toshi!
