Support » Plugins » [Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Many problems with NGGallery…

  • Resolved findigart


    Thanks for your Great effort, Alex – Good job.
    Thanks in advance for any help on the following issues.
    A Great thank you to this entire beautiful WordPress community!

    I am using
    WP Version: 2.7.1
    Atahualpa Theme
    Latest NGGallery version
    PHP Version : 5.2.9 (FastCGI)
    MYSQL Version : 5.0.75-community-log (SAFE-MODE is OFF

    My issues are:

    1. Slide show is not working. ImageRotator is in place, but I get the message β€œThe Flash Player and a browser with Javascript needed…”.
    I tried the solution offered in the FAQ page of Alex’s plugin page, but I haven’t even got the <HEAD> tags in my INDEX.PHP… they don’t exist.

    2.When trying to use the MediaRSS slide show I encounter another problem: it only shows the last 10 photos I updated – nothing more, although I have dozens of photos…

    3. When using the NextGEN Widget it shows the icons without any styling, thus they turn very crowded, since there is no margins and no padding. I thought that this was the default but even after altering the style page in the NextGEN admin panel nothing happened. Any ideas?

    4. When using the NextGEN galleries within a page (whether as implanting a whole album or using separate galleries), the code does not arrange them at all (regardless of the setting in the options panel but rather places the thumbnails one under the other in a very ugly long page… I tried Alex’s offered solution in the FAQ page of deleting the max=100% in the style.css but it does not help, not to mention that I have multiple appearances of this line in the style.css so I am not sure which one of them to erase, and it does not seem logical to erase them all.
    nothing I have tried helps. Any thoughts on the matter?

    5. Applying a bulk “Create Thumbnails” action inside “manage gallery” does not create any thumbnails, although the settings are fixed in the options page. I have to create each and every thumbnail manually… Laboring…

    Another question: (After we are done with all the above πŸ™‚ )
    How can I implement the slide show within the page header?

    Any help would really be appreciated since I am completely unable to use this plug in at all. nothing works for me…

  • Please post a link to your page, please cehck also for the head section in header.php

    Hey there alex πŸ™‚
    here is the link:

    Hey alex,

    I checked the header.php and found this:

    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    <?php if (function_exists(‘wp_pagenavi’)) { ?>
    <style type=”text/css”>
    .wp-pagenavi a:link, .wp-pagenavi a:visited, .wp-pagenavi a:active { color: #<?php echo $bfa_ata_link_color; ?>; border: solid 1px #<?php echo $bfa_ata_link_color; ?>; }
    .wp-pagenavi a:hover { color: #<?php echo $bfa_ata_link_hover_color; ?>; border: solid 1px #<?php echo $bfa_ata_link_hover_color; ?>; }
    <?php } ?>
    <?php echo ($bfa_ata_html_inserts_header != “” ? apply_filters(widget_text, $bfa_ata_html_inserts_header) : ”); ?>

    What should I do with this? I’m not really that much into php, css and all that stuff so i’m sorry if i don’t understand what you meant.

    Thanks! πŸ™‚

    Does the slideshow work with the default theme ?

    Well, all the bugs which I mentioned appear in the default theme as well. moreover, for some reason when i try now to insert a slideshow into a page via the nextgen icon it does nothing. the screen blinks for a second and nothing appears. i need to insert the code manually.

    Well, never mind – I’ll just use another plugin then…
