NextGEN Gallery
[resolved] Way for slideshow URLs to be shorter? (4 posts)

    We have the Nextgen Pro plugin installed (1.0.6) and are using the thickbox full-screen gallery option.

    Our gallery images come up with image URLs like this:

    http://staging.oursite.ca/beauty/face/blue-shadow-for-spring/#gallery/fbe5cff098e2eb8c6df06529c91e27ff/544/0

    Is there a way to set it so the URLs are shorter? Failing that, where is this generated:

    fbe5cff098e2eb8c6df06529c91e27ff

    and can we modify the number of characters used to generate it?

    Thanks

    You just need to set the "slug" parameter for your gallery. If you're using shortcodes you just need to write them as such:
    [nggallery id=1 slug='blue']
    And in Attach-To-Post it's the third field in the "What would you like to display?" accordion.

    You rock Benjamin. That was totally what I was looking for.

    Many thanks.
