[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Nextgen tagcloud and tag sorting

  • I’ve been using Nextgen and WordPress eStore to set up my online store. They are working beautifully together but one problem has me stumped. I sell wool fabric so I set up a gallery for the wool and tagged the fabric with colors. I set up the tag cloud using [tagcloud]. Very simple.

    • The problem comes when you click on a tagcloud item. The images that match that item appear but the tagcloud disappears. I would like it to stick around so the customer can make another choice without having to get back to the original page.
    • After the tag is clicked, where can I tell it to display the results using a template file so I can get it styled properly to show eStore button?
    • What can I use like query_posts to filter out images based on a custom field or on the tags? I could set up sections of red wool, green wool, etc.

    I am about 2 months into wordpress theme customizing, so I may have used the wrong terms but hopefully you know what I mean and can point me in the right direction.

    The page I want to customize is here.I set up a playground for the tagcloud problem here.

    I think the solution would be to have the tagcloud in a sidebar widget. I’ve already asked if this were possible but no one has replied yet.

    Getting closer . . .The function for the tag cloud is in nggfunctions.php. Looks like it accepts a variable for the template. Now I just have to figure out how to use the function.

    Got the tag cloud in the sidebar by usingadd_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode'); in the function.php file, but now the results are also shown in the sidebar. Back to figuring out functions….

    Wow rughooking, looks like you’re on to something. If ever you succeed, please let me know how you accomplished this and what the heck, it sure would be a great plugin for quite a few NGG users.

    Chers,

    Hi all,

    This problem is somewhat related to this post (except for the sorting issue)?

    And the possible solution I found could be this one?
