Gallery not scrollable - next or previous images, slideshow (5 posts)

    I may be totally off my rocker but I thought that having a gallery meant that when you clicked on one of the images, you would have the option to click through to the next image or previous image through there. Was this just a plugin function?

    I am working on a website that I did not set up. It has a custom theme. Here is an example of a photo page where I want the gallery to be slideshow (not automatic but clickable).


    Please make any suggestions.

    Thanks - Jennifer

    Not all galleries (plugins) necessarily have that functionality. What plugin are you using? See if it can do what you want or look for another gallery plugin?

    Thanks WPyogi! Sorry once again about the other post. Do you know of one off hand? I've used so many that I'm not sure which one does what. I've used Lightbox 2 and Easy Fancy Box, but I'm not sure those add the function of clicking through to the next picture. I'm not even sure what to search for. Would it be called a scrollable gallery? or slideshow? I also need to be able to have multiple galleries on the same page.

    Also, the plugin must work with images already uploaded to galleries and not have to upload them through the plugin, like NextGengallery.

    I've tried File Gallery and added tags to images but even though the settings were set for 3-4 columns, the images only aligned in one column.

    Arrggh - I am now a pirate!

    Try slideshow. I don't know off-hand so you'll have to look. Be sure it's fairly current (so it's compatible with WP - hopefully you are using the most recent version) and/or you'll have to make sure it's compatible with your custom theme.

    You could try using WordPress MAC photo gallery which is available in the plugin listing. Its just a plugin which will give you a perfect photo gallery and you can customize them as per your requirement.
