NextGEN Gallery templates problem

  • Hi.

    I want to use js-only carousel gallery in my blog and the best one I found is this: http://nextgen-gallery.com/templates/galleryview/. I downloaded and activated both NextGEN Gallery 1.4.3 and NextGEN Galleryview 1.0.1 plugins (my blog runs on WordPress 2.9, webserver is nginx 0.6.32, PHP version is 5.2.6-1). But nothing has changed after I activated Galleryview plugin, NextGEN gallery seems to ignore the “template” tag. So if I use example code ([ nggallery id=1 template=galleryview images=0 ]) I’ll just see it as plain text in new post without any gallery. Other Nextgen features work (like image list or image browser) fine, I created 1 album and 1 gallery. So how can I fix the problem and use galleryview plugin?

  • Any ideas? Still need help.

    I have a similar problem with the galleryview template.

    When I try to insert a gallery into a post with the galleryview template using:
    [nggallery id=1 template=galleryview images=0]
    My post comes up blank. No gallery is shown at all.

    I checked the source code of the page and everything seems to be working perfectly fine, except that it’s blank.

    The published post’s source code is below:

    <div id="ngg-gallery-1-242" class="galleryview">
    	<!-- Thumbnails --> 
    	<div class="panel">
    		<img src="http://alexagould.com/wp-content/gallery/test/stk_1665.jpg" />
    		<div class="panel-overlay">
    			<p> </p>
    	<div class="panel">
    		<img src="http://alexagould.com/wp-content/gallery/test/stl_1666.jpg" />
    		<div class="panel-overlay">
    			<p> </p>
    	<div class="panel">

    	    <li><img src="http://alexagould.com/wp-content/gallery/test/thumbs/thumbs_stm_1667.jpg" alt="stm_1667" title="stm_1667" /></li>
    <script type="text/javascript" defer="defer">
    			panel_width: 450,
    			panel_height: 400,
    			frame_width: 40,
    			frame_height: 40,
    			transition_interval: 0,
    			overlay_color: '#222',
    			overlay_text_color: 'white',
    			caption_text_color: '#222',
    			background_color: 'transparent',
    			border: 'none',
    			nav_theme: 'dark',
    			easing: 'easeInOutQuad'

    All of the necessary .js files are in the header as well:

    Please give me some hint 🙂

    Please post your server settings

    Also please use for a test the default theme and disable other plugins

    Alex, I changed WP theme to default one and everything started working fine. But I’d like this plugin to work with Mystique theme. I found out that some users also have problems with NextGEN+Mystique bundle (templates don’t work at all), but have no idea how to fix it: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/322761?replies=4. Can you check it?

    I tested mine with the default theme, and the template worked fine. Do you have any clues what might be causing it to not work with my theme? Are there any specific requirements that must be included in index.php (or page.php) for it to work, besides the_content(); ?

    Yes, galleryview works fine if default theme is chosen. But once i change WP theme to mistique, I see plain text like [ nggallery id=1 template=galleryview images=0 ] instead of images. I looked through page.php and index.php and didn’t find anything special. Can somebody please check what in the theme may conflict with this plugin? Here is the theme’s page: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/mystique

    Put the file gallery-galleryview.php in the theme’s nggallery directory. Putting the file there solved this kind of problem for me, but I am still figuring this out. Dropping the gallery- from the file name when you use template=galleryview may seem second nature to more experienced users, but it had me stumped for a while.

    Okay, I solved the problem. It turns out that there was another javascript file being called in my header.php that was causing a conflict.

    I tried both moving gallery-galleryview.php from ./nggGalleryview/view to ./nggGalleryview/themes (and both subdirs) folder and renaming it to galleryview.php. Doesn’t seem to make any difference. I thing the main problem is in NextGen gallery itself, because none of preloaded templates works.

    Galleryview require jQuery and other Javascript code to work correctly, so if it doesn’t work at your theme, check the header if the author added some script code and maybe contact the theme author… it’s not possible to solve such a conflict on NGG side.

    Is there a way to make Galleryview maintain the aspect ratio of images when it resizes them?

    This still doesn’t work with the default template, just one big white are in the content area.

    Hi, it doesn’t work for me too.
    I tried desfault theme but appears the same problem.
    When I put GalleryView template appears just a big blank page.
    Any ideas, please.
