  • The NextGen Gallery Slidshow is able to display a nifty navigation bar.

    Click here and scroll down to “here are some pictures from the place to be – Ireland” at the bottom of the page for an example.

    The Slideshow Sidebar Widget, however, does not display such a navigation bar.

    In nggwidget.php, line 50 the standard command reads:
    $out .= “\n\t\t”.’sbsl.addVariable(“shownavigation”, “false”);’;

    May I suggest the slideshow widget configuration be updated to let the user choose whether to show a navigation bar?

  • I thought a nav-bar is not useful for the sidebar, therefore I disabled it by default.

    HOw you align:left the slideshow, I’ve been busting my ass to find the answer of this, anybody please….



    How to remove the link [Show as slideshow] that appear above the image gallery. and this is my site

    Thank you



    I cant get the navigation to show up when the slideshow is in a post…
    Any ideas?



    So i got the navigation to work, it seems my captions where to big, making the navigation outside of the slideshow parameters.
    Is there way to use bigger captions without having to resize the slideshow? Or separate the captions from the navigation? I am assuming this can be done through the CSS but would like the easy road if anyone has done this before and would like to help out…

    Thanks in advance

    I wanted to incorporate the slideshow on top of the posts, similar to the “featured content” widget. I figured out how to display the slideshow outside of a post/page and still have the navigation bar show up. Please go to


    around line 61 is this code

    $swfobject->add_flashvars( 'shownavigation', 'false', 'true', 'bool');

    now swap the value “false” with the value “true”, so the code looks like this:

    $swfobject->add_flashvars( 'shownavigation', 'true', 'false', 'bool');

    Now you have swapped the default value to show the navigation bar, so if you embed the slideshow widget into the sidebar or other places other than inside of a post or page it should show the navigation bar.

    Some themes now have Widget ready areas outside the typical sidebar area. Can the nav-bar be enabled selectively on NGG Slideshow widget? A continuously running large slideshow may be annoying or the viewer may want to stop it and look at some images. I will greatly appreciate if you could incorporate a way of choosing to use the nav-bar.


    @jglass Did you ever find a solution to the captions issue?

    It would be ideal if the caption could be moved or even disabled to keep that navigation 🙁
