Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » Nextgen 2.0 Caption Template / Column Problem

  • Resolved mikeschumann


    Using Nextgen 2.0.7, when I display a gallery with the “gallery-caption.php” template, it screws up the column setting for the gallery. Specifically, if I set the gallery to display 2 columns, it works fine if I leave the template setting blank. If I specify the caption template, it displays the gallery in a single column.

    How can we get this fixed?

    @mikeschumann: Yup, I’ve duplicated this issue and created a high priority item. As far as I can tell, your caption template will always display one less column than what you specify in the settings. It appears something’s off in how the column widths are begin calculated.

    Since I’ve seen a few issues on this, and given that you named the thread so well so others can find it, I’m just making this sticky so others with the issue will see it.

    For anyone else, if you having this and want to post details below, please do so. There’s no quick fix for now, we just need to solve it and it should be in the next update, probably in about a week.

    Until then, you may want to switch to standard thumbnail galleries rather than using the caption template.

    It would be terribly good to have either the image number below/above the image or the image title.
    This is utterly important on websites where you want people ordering images for purchase. Many pro photographers use NextGEN to display images that are for sale.

    The way I had it setup on the older versions was to have the image title/number displaying above the image and then the description below the image.
    The reason for this is that I use ACDSee to write IPTC info to display the title as the image number and the description as a description of the image type and who the photographer is.
    When importing the images in NextGEN it automatically imports that IPTC info and displays it correctly.

    Hi – I’m leaving the template blank and specifying 5 columns, but still getting only 1 column in all my galleries. It seems to be the same / similar issue as above. Any advice / info would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks for this thread – I’ll keep checking to see if this is resolved here.

    I also find that the thumnbail gallery images overlap rather than resizing as the display width narrows. Is there a way to remove the specified image width attribute when the gallery is created?

    I am using the latest version of NextGen (2.0.7) and the thumbnails with caption option.

    @cse7: your issue sounds a bit different so I’m not sure if that’s resolve with these other fixes or not. You can try it and let us know. Otherwise if it’s not resolved, please provide a link so we can see the behavior. Thanks.

    Hey all: For now, I’m going to mark this as fixed because a fix is available now and also will included in the next release. That way people know when seeing the topic there’s a fix. If for some reason it doesn’t work, please just ask us to reopen, or start a new thread, as you prefer. Thanks.

    Could you perhaps include the fix in the subversion version as I update all my plugins with svn update?

    Thanks for the hard work. I know you guys are going through a rough patch but I am pretty sure all the new changes will be for the better in future! 🙂
