How do you sort galleries (2 posts)

    I have created 5 galleries in NextGen and added them to one album. Three of the galleries are related to each other, and I would like to keep them together as the last galleries seen. How do I sort them? They are in the correct order I want them in the Album page, but when I view the website they are listed numerically. I tried creating multiple albums, but all the galleries showed up in each of the albums creating duplicate entries on the website. Any suggestions on how to fix this.
    For example I have an albums called white cats, black cats, mixed color cats, dogs, and chickens. I would like to keep all the cats together and the dog and chickens in any order.

    Galleries on my site are displayed in the order they appear in the Album so that should have worked for you. Go into Manage Albums then select your album, check that the gallery order that gets displayed is how you want it then click UPDATE.

    Put a shortcode like [album id=nn template=compact] on your photo page and then see what order the galleries are in.

    If its still wrong then you can circumvent your problem by using multiple gallery shortcodes on the page in any order you'd like eg.

    [nggallery id=4]
    [nggallery id=3]
    [nggallery id=10]

    Thats what I do for my main Japanese Gallery page as it allows me to add headings between the albums.
