    Just what we needed, great add-on for Nextgen! You can modify the default template, or create additional templates, by copying the gallery-galleryview.php to a /nggallery folder under your theme. Lots of options to customize the look and function of the slideshow.

    Hi gabriel ... you mention being able to create additional templates based on galleryview ... how does one do this? I would love to be able to use different flavors of galleryview templates at different locations on my site, but can't figure out how to do so. Probably just being dense, but your direction would be greatly appreciated.

    To create custom templates for Nextgen-Galleryview:

    1) Create a sub-folder named "nggallery" in the folder of your WordPress theme, i.e. /wp-content/themes/twentytwelve/nggallery/

    2) Copy the file /wp-content/plugins/nextgen-galleryview2/view/gallery-galleryview.php to the folder you created in Step 1.

    3) If you want to make any changes to the default behavior of Galleryview, edit the copy of gallery-galleryview.php in your theme's /nggallery/ folder instead of the one in the plugin's /view/ folder; that way your changes aren't lost when upgrading the plugin.

    4) Make additional copies of gallery-galleryview.php in your theme's /nggallery/ folder, renaming them with unique identifiers before the .php extension, i.e. gallery-galleryview-template2.php

    5) Edit gallery-galleryview-template2.php. There are 30 different options for controlling the look and behavior of Galleryview.

    6) When inserting the Nextgen shortcode, use the new Galleryview template name. I.e. instead of [nggallery id=1 template="galleryview"], you would use [nggallery id=1 template="galleryview-template2"]

    After posting this, I see from another thread you have this figured out now, but maybe this will be useful to someone.
