[resolved] NextGEN Gallery Creates Huge Blank Space (3 posts)

    For some reason when I try and post a gallery using NextGEN, it creates a page or two worth of blank space before the gallery is visible. What can I change so that the gallery is displayed directly below the text of the post without a huge gap? I've tried changing the column setting to no avail. Something similar happens when I post a single image that is too large.

    Fixed after much frustration. Removing the /*clear:both; */ from the style sheet fixed the issue, though even with admin privledges, NG wouldn't let me change the style - had to edit the CSS file through FTP to get it to work.

    I just recently updated my install of the NextGen Gallery,

    while doing so, i had a vision of inspiration, for using the gallery slide show feature as a rotating header banner image for one of the sites ive been working on,

    Created a new gallery, uploaded the banner images,
    created a new sidebar widget('header_images'), added a slide show
    with a fixed width and height to it, along with the gallery i wanted to use, and exclude all other galleries,

    In my header.php file for the template, were the header banners used to load, i replaced that with the function code to check for a widget, and bobs your uncle ive got a rotating header, with nice image changing effects :)

    the gallery idea can be seen here..
