    Hi everybody,

    Here's my question:

    Let's say you upload 100 pictures with NG Gallery, you can show 20 thumbnails on your website.
    When you click on the thumnail, it opens the picture with for example lightbox. You can click further in the gallery, up to 20 pictures (the amount of thumbnails).

    Is it possible to click further than those 20 pictures, in my example: that you can click next till the 100th picture.

    In Admin->Gallery->Options, in the Gallery tab, you can set the number of thumbnails to show per page. If you have more images in a gallery than the number you set here, there will be page navigation numbers under the thumbnails to go to other pages.

    Thanks for your answer, but that's exactly the problem I encounter.
    It means that a visitor must click on the first thumbnail, watch the 5 pictures, close the lightbox, click on the next page, watch the next 5 pictures, etc...

    If you have 400 pictures in a gallery, a visitor must click 80 times on the next page.

    Is it not possible to open those 400 images in the lightbox popup. Visitors onl have to click next then and not close lightbox everytime.

    Thanks in advance for the answers.

    The only way I know of is to set the number of thumbnails per page to a higher number in Admin->Gallery->Options on the Gallery tab.

    I had this problem myself a while ago. I solved it with a bit of a hack.

    The gallery needs each image that will appear in the lightbox to appear as a thumbnail, but you only want the first X thumbs to appear.

    To solve it I created my own gallery template, and simply added a class to all the thumbnails I didn't want to show that set a css style on them to display:none;

    That way, both you and the plugin are satisfied. Not pretty... but it works!
