I've installed wordpress v3.2.1 and NextGen Gallery plugin v1.8.3. I've uploaded 3 images into a gallery and then tried to view the gallery in a page with this shortcode tag [nggallery id=9]. It doesn't work however and I'm baffled. My site layout appears, but where I expect the shortcode to be translated to some html, there's no html at all.
I put some echo statements inside the shortcode function 'show_gallery' in /plugins/nextgen-gallery/lib/shortcodes.php to see if the function was even being called, but nothing appeared on the screen so I'm assuming it's not even being called. Any help would be appreciated... I'm just trying to get a simple gallery to show up on the page. I don't know the intricacies of wordpress and this plugin well enough, so I'm baffled at thsi point. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
