Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » Deeplinking to image in gallery?

  • Hi,

    I’ve just purchased NextGen Gallery Plus in order to use various features such as commenting, and I’d like to use deep linking.

    Part of the functionality I’ve built into my site is to email users whenever a comment is made, and I figured that I could extend this to include comments made against images. I’d like to be able to fire up the lightbox via a link in an email and display the image with its comments.

    However, I cannot seem to produce a URL which will show the selected image. The system seems to always display just the gallery containing the image.

    I’ve tried:
    – Right-click image in gallery and use ‘select hyperlink’ to reverse-engineer the URL to use;
    – Enable Facebook sharing and share an image, then use that URL to reverse-engineer the right URL.

    For both the above attempts, the system seems to revert to the gallery itself. Even the link shared via Facebook sharing reverts back to the gallery itself, not the image which was shared. i.e. Facebook sharing doesn’t seem to work correctly.

    I’ve seen a previous forum post here with a similar query from almost a year ago; that thread ended without resolution.

    Any and all help would be gratefully received.

    Paul.
