Thumbnail nav path problem (5 posts)

    I posted this just a few days ago, but somehow it got deleted? When turning on the Thumbnail navigation for the Nivo Slider it is calling for the wrong path to where Nextgen actually stores the thumbs for each picture. Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions?

    I'm having the same problem. The thumbnails on the page are being referenced to the same directory as the full-size images and not "/<gallery name>/thumbs"

    Hey, I've made a new feature in the latest release for thumbnails. Hope it helps.

    Thanks for the quick response. I see that the image now has "_thumb" appended to the name but my issue is that my thumbnails are located in another directory under the main gallery. So, for instance, my main images are located in /gallery/web-design/ and my thumbnails are located in /gallery/web-design/thumbs/.

    Additionally, my thumbnails are named as "thumbs_XXXXXXX.jpg"


    Sorry, it appears that by default, Nivo searches for ".jpg" and replaces it with "_thumb.jpg" so I'm not sure how to modify that to prepend the image with "thumbs_" since there's nothing to search for and replace as it's a prepend.

    The web inspector, however, still shows that the thumbnails are not being looked for in /gallery/web-design/thumbs/.

    Hey dsburdette,

    Nivo search and replace only changes the suffix of the image.

    The two new options for controlNavThumbs:

    nextgen thumbs: will automatically use the thumbnails from the gallery, it ignores the search and replace of Nivo due to my own javascript being fired after the nivo settings have been set.

    nextgen original: uses the image you see in the slider and resizes it if thumb width and thumb height settings are present.

    If you want to resize the thumbnails in your NextGen gallery you can do this.

    -> Go to gallery
    -> Bulk actions - Create new thumbnails
    -> Apply
    -> Put in thumb dimensions
    -> Ok

    You can do something similar for the original size of the image aswell.
