[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] How to do this in NGG (new user)

  • Hello everybody,

    I am sure this is very simple but I am a little confused since I am coming from Gallery2 and not familiar yet with the terminology of NGG.

    Here is what I want to do:

    Level 1: Overview. Have a page that lists all my galleries as thumbnails with short description, date, and so on
    Level 2: Thumbnail page. A click on a gallery leads to a thumbnail page where all pictures are listet (thumbs only)
    Level 3: Image view. Clicking on a thumbnail opens a page with a larger version of th eimage plus details such as descritpion, caption, exif
    Level 4: Lightbox view. Clicking on this picture then opens a fullscreen light box with minimal additional info, maybe just the caption or not even that.

    So in NGG “terms”, would this be:
    L1: ALBUM PAGE
    L2: GALLERY PAGE
    L3: SINGLE PICTURE
    L4: a lightbox?

    In all the examples I am kinda missing L3. They always go straight from thumbnails to lightbox or simple image file.
    As I said I am very new and I haven’t yet started to think in NGG terms.

    To understand better what I want: I would like to port my current Gallery2 to NGG (note that there L4 is currently missing).

    Thanks for your help!
