Support » Plugin: Gallery Manager » display nav arrows in gallery images but not in single images in blog post?

  • Resolved flominton


    Hi and thanks for a great plugin.

    I just installed Fancy Gallery after already having an install of NextGen active. I used NextGen to create my image galleries but would like to use FancyGallery to display them. Everything appears to be working fine with the exception of one thing:
    I want the posts with a single image to NOT have any nav arrows and the gallery pages with a NextGen Gallery placed in the post to display nav arrows when a thumbnail is clicked so a viewer can go through all of the images on that page one-by-one. I am struggling getting this scenario to work.

    I have the GALLERY>OPTIONS>EFFECTS>Java Script Thumbnail Effect in NextGen set to NONE. When I go to my home page ( click a single image in one of the blog posts, the Fancy Gallery works perfectly and displays the image in a lightbox. When I go to a gallery page ( and click one of the thumbnails, the image displays perfectly, but there is no nav arrow to see the next image in the gallery.

    I went back to FANCY GALLERY>OPTIONS and tried ticking “Consolidate single images in a post to one group so the user can navigate through them”. This inserts the nav arrows perfectly in the gallery page, but the problem is it also puts a nav arrow in the post with the single image and connects all of the single images on that page and into the rest of the NextGen Galleries, which I dnot want.

    I would like to only have FancyGellery display the nav arrows if the post or page has a multiple image gellery and not display the nav arrows for an image that is the only image in a blog post.

    Can you tell me if this can be done?
    Thanks again for your great plugin and I appreciate your help very much.
    Vielen Dank,

    I found a way to do it but now I have a new problem. I removed the single image I had in the post and replaced it with a gallery of only one image. now the Fancy Gallery works with no nav on this single image, problem is now I cant get the gallery to align left in the post like it did before.
    I tired using the handles to make the gallery smaller and it doesn’t work.
    Any idea how to get the gallery to align left?



    OK…found fancy-gallery.css. Changed the float to left. It looks better, but the text does not sit to the right of the image (wrap around). It sits under….will keep trying but if you can help, please do.

    Im thinking if I can change the width of the inserted gallery, the text will automatically jump into place to the right of the image, but I cant find a way to adjust the width of the gallery still…

    Hi Flo,

    please go to the Fancy Gallery options page and disable the “Consolidate single images…” option.

    Then go to Gallery -> Options -> Effect and set the “JavaScript Thumbnail effect” to “Custom” and add this “Link Code Line”:

    class="fancybox" rel="%GALLERY_NAME%"

    And then NextGen will play very well with FancyGallery. 🙂
