[resolved] EM and NextGEN Gallery shortcodes (5 posts)

    I saw on the events manager demo here that NextGEN gallery was used for displaying galleries on a single event page.

    I just can't do the same, the ngg shortcode I put in the event content isn't interpreted and is displayed as is. Am I missing something? Can't you use other shortcodes from other plugin within EM?

    Thanks for your help!

    that page uses this shortcode [nggallery id=x] in the event details

    you can also use the integrated WP gallery shortcode.

    In the event edit window, I place [nggallery id=1] in the details window, update, and then view the event. The gallery doesn't display. Only "[nggallery id=1]" shows up. The same goes for a WordPress gallery. Only the shortcode displays with the event details text.

    I am using a child theme based upon Twenty Twelve.

    Any help appreciated.

    :) Eric

    Hi @ericreynolds007,

    I just tried this again and seems to worked perfectly; here's what I tried

    1. added a new gallery and photos using nextgen
    2. created a new event and then I add the nextgen shortcode [nggallery id=1] in the event details or description using Text Editor
    3. I added placeholders #_EVENTNOTES at Settings > Formatting > Events > Default single event format
    4. tested and works great
