Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » pagination WITHOUT lightbox

  • Resolved cbacchini


    In gallery displaying in basic slideshow mode, until the last version of Nextgen Gallery, if you clicked in a photo, it used to pass to the next photo.
    Since the last (or one of the last) version, clicking opens the lightbox.
    This is an interesting behaviour if the gallery is a “true” gallery, but it is undesirable if the gallery is in a Home Page of a site and you don’t want the user to be distracted from the page. On a mobile phone used in “portrait” mode, the light box opens a smaller version of the photo. which is quite useless.
    Would it be possible to have the original behaviour restored, perhaps under a settings parameter ?

    Hi @cbacchini,

    We’ve done a major redesign for the basic slideshow gallery display type since the old script that we were using wasn’t getting updated for a critical long time and we had to exclude it from our product so from now the slideshow’s behavior is to open the image in the lightbox if clicked but we can help and provide you with a custom CSS rule that should prevent triggering any link on click ( please just add it to “Gallery -> Other Options -> Styles”

    .ngg-slideshow .ngg-gallery-slideshow-image a {
        display: inline !important;
        pointer-events: none;

    Hope this helps

    Thank you very much – now clicking does nothing
    Is there any other pointer event which makes it go to the next image in the gallery ?

    Hi @cbacchini,

    Unfortunately, no. This was a custom implemented feature from the slideshow script that we have used in the past gallery display type that cannot achieved using a simple custom CSS rule.

    Thanks for your understanding
