    Okay -- call me an idiot, but I'm not a programmer. This is an amazing plug-in that I've installed and configured and worked with now for hours. In general I get it...

    BUT -- when I present a gallery posted to a page using [gallery=ID#] I can't get it to include the description and/or the alt text. I've tried to use custom fields on the page as follows:

    Custom Field Name:
    ngg_gal_showdescription
    Value:
    desc

    No go ... I tried the same above with Value: alttxt ...

    No go ...

    There must be a way with short codes or someway to be able to include selected metadata in the gallery presentation.

    I want to be able to have the alttxt and/or the description presented under each of the thumbnails....

    PLEASE help. This is driving me bonkers.

    Thanks!!
