  • rjohnsonvisuals


    quick question:
    can i assign links to the images in the slideshow? I.E. if I have an image that says something like “click to find out more” then the user clicks and gets redirected to another site?

    Id like to be able to do this too.




    I actually got this to work…I just put the html code for the link into the description and was able to link to another page. So that might be a workaround for some.



    Actually that doesnt work…it links all the images to the last link entered. Anyone else have any luck?



    I need a slideshow that allows both image and captions to be clickable. NextGen is a sweet plugin – but I can’t seem to customize it. Is there an in-depth users manual somewhere? I would donate to the cause….



    This is a very importand function to many users of ngg. for older versions there was a workaround finding here:

    Workaround for older versions

    i have tried it with new ngg 1.6.2 and both doesn’t work =(

    if there is a ngg-guru out there to fix this prob ?

    Would love an update on this

    For single pictures, it is already integrated:

    [singlepic id=120 w=280 h=180 float=left link=]

    How about for a gallery?

    How you want the gallery to behave? No using any js effect? or once opened the big image this should be linked?

    I would like to link each picture to different pages – and even have clickable captions. Here is an example from a site I’m working on. The current gallery is ok, but I’d like to have a WP plugin to do this – and smoother transitions.

    It would be nice if you could specify a hotlink to each picture in your gallery. So when the picture is clicked in gallery view, it goes to that link.

    Im not sure NGG is the plugin you need, that is a “featured content” plugin there. NGG uses a flash container for the slideshow that disables urls clicks.

    Heres one:

    @mcdoopy: Yeah I know, but at that point is too much changes in the core files of NGG (even creating a new field in the database for the stored urls). At best now I think is better just to work with a linkable text in the caption (modifying the template only)

    Ahh.. I understand. Although, that makes it an extra step for the user. I just created my own thumbnails and linked them. Extra work for me, but much more user-friendly for the visitor 😉

    I think it should be included in a future update!

    yeah, I have a couple of features in my wishlist:

    1) Preview of pics when adding single pic in a post (a list of the pics dont tell me much)

    2) Add album/gallery as a link
