NextGen Gallery - Changing Text For Image (2 posts)

    Hey all,

    Currently working on my first WordPress build after moving away from e107 (For various reasons)

    I have just installed NextGEN Gallery and configured most of it to suit the build, however there are a couple of things I'd like to ask, see if anyone has, tried, succeeded or indeed failed at doing.

    I have the gallery settings configured so that:

    [View As Slideshow]
    [View with PicLens]

    Both appear just before the thumbnails, this is fine however what I'd really like to see is something a little more professional.

    Under NextGen/Options/Gallery you are given the choice to Integrate slideshow, it also offers options to change the text that will be shown on the front end.

    Mine are set up as follows: <b>[View As Slideshow]</b> & <b>[Return To Picture List]</b>

    The bold tags work fine and show as intended. What I would really like to do though is change the text for images - click here buttons. I have tried with an img src link being called from uploads but all I see is a failed image that still works as a link to the slideshow but is no good without the image.

    Is it possible to get an image to show here?

    Finally, and I'm just being lazy with this one, I have Activate PicLens/CoolIris support set hence I see the [View with PicLens] text is visible next to inserted gallery, could anyone tell me which file this is being called from so I can attempt to make changes to that too.

    Thanks for any advice anyone can give.

    Hi, After a week of waiting I thought I'd give this another shot.

    Not so much interested in the Slideshow/Playlist side of things any more but would really like to change [View With PicLens] to a click-able logo/ image as I personally think the text looks, sad, lonely & to be quite honest lame next to an incorporated gallery.

    Someone must have thought of or done this already? - Anyone........
