Support » Plugins » [Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] How to add date/time into image description

  • Hi there

    Apologies if it’s been asked before but I can’t seem to find the answer to it.

    I am uploading my pictures and I want to display the date/time or any other meta information on the description or title.

    Is there anyway I can automate this process or will I have to copy and paste the information for 3500 pictures! 🙂

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,
    I’m also trying to get this function ..
    So far I managed to discover two things :

      Within the plugins\NextGEN Gallery\view folder there is a file called gallery.php in line 42 under the <div class="ngg-gallery-thumbnail" > code there is the link that you need to add a code for the date in your description (inside the title tag –if you overwrite the existing code you will lose the description of the file insert as addition-)

    • the first code is <?php echo $exif['created_timestamp'] ?> This code did not work for me.. Might work for you.
    • the second code is <?php echo $image->imagedate ?> it worked for me, but with a problem not yet resolved
      It shows the date and time of the file in question and i want only the date

    Hope this helps you
    And if you find the solution please share it with me also
    Good luck
