NextCellent Gallery Search


NextCellent Gallery Search

This is just a fork of the NextGEN Gallery Search by Koen Schuit.
Not much is changed. Just all functions were renamed and updated to find the NextCellent plugin.

NextCellent Gallery – Search Galleries adds a search option to the existing NextCellent Gallery menu.

With this option you can search through your galleries quick and easy, you don’t have to go through a whole list of galleries anymore.
The output of the search will be shown in a table similar to the manage galleries page and will provide a link to that gallery.

NextCellent Gallery Search even adds an option to search in the description which can be helpful if you don’t remember the name.

And NextCellent Gallery Search also has the ability to search for a part of the name or description.
For example: int will find internet, but also winter, ballpoint, saints etc.

Please note: this plugin requires NextCellent Gallery – NextGEN Legacy installed.

Key features:

  1. Find galleries easily!
  2. Search for name or description.
  3. Outputs a link to the gallery.

I installed the plugin but I can’t find the menu item

The plugin creates a new menu item under under Gallery called Search Galleries.

There is no menu called Gallery

If you don’t see a menu called Gallery you probably don’t have NextCellent Gallery installed. Please got to the plugins page and check if you have NextCellent Gallery installed and activated.
