I personally am using a nextgen gallery to manage an inventory as there really is no proper inventory manager for wordpress that doesn't look like crap. I thought these custom fields would be the answer to my prayers as I could post multiple pictures of an item in in a relatively aesthetically pleasing manner AND create the fields appropriate for the kind of items I'm managing but to no avail, as of yet.
I have put this:
<?php echo $image->ngg_custom_fields["Your Field Name Here"]; ?> in a bunch of different places yet have not gotten it to work.
I'm using 1 gallery with a separate gallery for each item. The custom fields will be the same for each item.
I'm not going to go as far as to say "half baked" (as was said in a previous thread) but it would be infinitely helpful for someone to say
Find this file___.
Put this code___between___and___.
Etc. etc. At this point I apparently don't even know what I'm looking for.
