I am using Nextgen Gallery Powertags 1.6.1 in several galleries at http://architourist.ca but question if I am using it properly, or have a different expectation than how it actually works. Maybe you can help?
NGP allows me to keep all related images in one Nextgen gallery/folder and select them for presentation in small groups using a number of tags. NGP limits the thumbnail grid to the images with the specified tag(s). So far very good! (The tags menu is not used for these galleries.)
When the a thumbnail is clicked the image is opened, then you can scroll/page/click to the next/previous image. If there are only 6 of 20 images selected by the tag, should only those 6 images be available for viewing from those 6 thumbnails? (i.e only the tagged / filtered images) - or does the filtered thumbnail gallery show the 6 tagged/filtered thumbnails but pop-up all 20 images in the Nextgen gallery for viewing by scrool/page/click?
This second result is what I experience with my usage, but I really expected the first, fully filtered behaviour.
A good example is here "Southlands Residence" where tags are used to select from the Nextgen gallery into 3 separate thumbnail displays on the page: 6 images, 6 images and 19 images. But each thumbnail gallery pages through all 31 images from the gallery/folder. I expected NGP to filter the thumbnail gallery (yes!) and also restrict access to only the filtered full images, but it does not.
Can you tell me if I am using NGP incorrectly, or perhaps misunderstand the usage?
