Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » Nextgen gallery opens up my images alongside my theme's default viewer

  • Hi,
    I have a problem with the nextgen gallery viewer opening up my images alongisde my wordpress theme’s own default pretty photo viewer. What I get is a double gallery where the next gen one is right ontop of my wordpress theme’s own image viewer. I end up having to close two galleries each time when I want to exit from the viewer. I followed the add galleries instructions perfectly on the site and don’t have any duplicate images or galleries in my media library that would cause my problem to happen. So my question is, how do i disable my wordpress theme’s image gallery viewer so I can just use the next gen one? It would also be great if I could disable it in some of my pages/posts while use it on others as well.

    My next question is how do I stack my images into one single gallery viewer, much like how “portfolios” are used inside of wordpress. Currently the next gen albums, when clicked go into the gallery page of the images where you see the list of pics there, what I want is when I click on a next gen album, it would load the pics directly inside it’s own viewer lightbox instead of linking to a separate page.

    3rd question is, how do I embed into nextgen gallery social networking buttons like the tweet and facebook like buttons that show up in my wordpress theme’s default prettyphoto image viewer.
    There is a tutorial how to do it here,

    I am wondering if this can work for the most up to date recent version of nextgen gallery?

    My last question is, I also would like to have the next gen gallery viewer that i see on this site here,

    Currently the free version doesn’t look anything like the viewer used on your documentation site. Is it a free plugin that i am missing out on?

    – Does this error still occur if you switch your theme to the WP default, and deactivate all plugins except NextGEN Gallery? (*be sure to clear your browser cache and reload your site after deactivating)
    Since nextgen gallery is the only one i used, it is the equivalent of switching to default.
