  • Resolved sampost


    I’ve spent hours trying to figure this one out.

    So I wrote and formatted the first of these, and pasted it into the alt/descrip box.
    It shows up, but only if I’m using Nextgen’s caption template in their

    Hey man,

    Thanks for the message, sorry this is a little hard to understand, it seems you are heavy customizing our plugin for integrate the great plugin — Next-gen, my suggestion is on our plugin — wordpress tooltips side, if you check our plugins’ code, you will find in our functions, we have many hooks, so in Next-Gen, you can call our API to do what you wanting, another way it in Next-Gen, if you check their hooks, you can integrate our plugin with Next-Gen by call their hook/action/filter.

    I am sorry I can only offer these suggestion, just like another author replied you: ” This goes a little outside of the scope of the support I can provide for this plugin. If you have a specific question about using the plugin, I will be able to help. Good luck with your project.” , I think you need use some hours to analyze both of our codes for your heavy customize work, have a good luck and have a nice weekend. 🙂

    Best Regards,
