[resolved] NextGen Gallery... HOW? (6 posts)

    I installed the NexGen Gallery plugin and it is working fine.

    I want to display my 2 albums on my about-page so I'm using the following tag: [album=ID,extend] as suggested by the developer.

    It is not displaying on my page, though. only the code itself [album=ID,extend] My albums have ID 1 and ID 2 - the question is: How do I knit this together so it will display on my page?

    Does anyone actually ANSWER posts for help at this forum? I've never seen so little help at a forum -- so many unanswered requests for help.

    For NextGen questions you might get a quicker response at the forum for that plug-in:

    Alex Rabe's Forums (scroll down to NextGen discussion).

    Seems to be fairly active forum so try there first. If you find out -- post the answer here, others will be looking for it.

    I figured this one out last night actually with cforms doing the same thing to me. If you use the visual entry option when writing posts, WP will turn the "[" & "]" into the special character code in the html document that gets rendered, hence exactly like you typed it on the webpage itself. You have to use the html entry option to avoid WP doing that.

    ive asked this before... i think this is what yur asking for

    $showalbum = '[album=ID,compact]';
    $showalbum = apply_filters('the_content', $showalbum );
    echo $showalbum;

    just change the ID ... this works in any template as long as the <?php wp_head(); ?> is in the header
