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?
PS. Disqus seems to be broken on your site 🙂
ok I understood the problem. Give me a couple of days to inspect this issue.
I’ll tell you soon
PS: what kind of problem do you see with disqus on my site?
Hi again Tom,
you should be able now to specify a new attribute called “unique” in which you can put a different value (a number or a name, does not matter) for each shortcode.
[nggpowertags gallery=1,2 include=mytag unique=mytag]
[nggpowertags gallery=1,2 include=mysecondtag unique=mysecondtag]
Let me know if it works.
Yes, it works very well! Perhaps better than expected – it seems that the “include” parameter is now not required. I have tested several posts and galleries and find that I can use “unique” and “exclude” and not use “include”.
I am happy to do more testing on additional galleries and provide my results (please let me know by email). As far at this original topic, it may be marked closed if you are also satisfied.
Thanks for the great support for your plugin!
