Support » Plugins » NextGen Custom Fields…

  • Resolved emkcid


    Please bear with me, I’m a complete beginner…
    I started using NextGen Gallery as my first plug-in and it’s working well.
    However, I didn’t realise I couldn’t add descriptions to individual photos, so I downloaded NextGen Custom Fields…
    No matter where I try to place the “show code” in the NGG template and despite trawling here and reading various posts, I cannot get the photo descriptions to display when my slideshow plays.
    Could anyone offer me a solution, please? (preferably in “idiot-speak”.
    Thank you.

  • Hi emkcid
    What shortcode are you using to show the NextGEN Gallery in your page? And what template are you putting the tag to show the custom field in?

    Hi there
    I just added the Slideshows into my pages via the “kitchen sink” button and it shows in my pages as />[slideshow id=1] I have 3 slideshows on 3 pages and they display properly when those pages are viewed.

    The NGG template I was trying to add the tag for “custom field” to is nextgen-gallery/view/gallery.php (which I thought I saw you recommend to someone in an earlier post).

    The gallery.php template is used to show the normal gallery, when you use the shortcode [nggallery id=x]. As far as I remember, the slideshows are hard-coded directly into core code of NGG. This makes adding the custom fields there a little more tricky, and probably not for the beginner.
    If you really need custom fields there, you might need someone with a bit more web development knowledge o help you out.

    Ok, thank you very much for your help, at least I’m glad it wasn’t just me being totally thick…
    I guess I’ll try to find a slideshow plug-in that lets me add descriptions to each photo easily, without any add-ons.
    Take it easy…
