    tried this and it didn’t work:

    [ngg_images gallery_ids=”1″ display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_thumbnails” order_by=”random” number_of_columns=”3″]

    Would also be curious to know about this…

    @brian and @aleph22 – The current version of NextGEN Gallery does not offer an order_by parameter for the Basic Thumbnails display; and, unfortunately the “Custom” sort method (think drag and drop) in the ATP does not consistently work at this time.

    The former is a great Feature Request idea and I will be making note of it while the latter is something we are currently looking to sort out.

    Thanks for the idea!

    Try using order_by=’rand()’:

    [ngg_images gallery_ids="1" display_type="photocrati-nextgen_basic_thumbnails" order_by="rand()" number_of_columns="3"]

    Wow Benjamin,

    that actually works! Thanks a lot! I had tried this before, but had omitted the () part…

    Yes … thanks, Ben!

    I’ve made a note for this and if no one minds will mark this thread as resolved, too.

    – Cais.
