  • JPD Studio


    Does anyone know how to remove the title above the slideshow widget? I just updated my next gen plugin and it made the title “Slideshow” appear above my slideshow widget on my homepage.

    See it here live, the word Slideshow is appearing above the Slideshow in black type:

    I also left the title field empty in the widget. Any help little bit of help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Was my question confusing?



    From reading through all the other recent posts, it looks as though there are many problems with the upgrade.

    I can’t answer your question, because I’m a newbie at this but I want to ask you if you can tell me how to get this to show in a widget in the sidebar, as you seem to have succeeded! I can’t get it to show, the only thing that shows in mine is that actual sidebar code (that’s all I put in the widget).

    Could you be very, very kind and tell me what code to put in the widget?

    Many thanks for your help 🙂



    It’s Ok, I have found how to do it. And in case anyone else is searching for this answer, there was a widget specially for it in the theme. I don’t know if all themes have this but certainly worth having a look there first.

    …Now I’m stuck with the same problem as Jpdstudio, above, that I can’t get rid of the title above the slideshow… any ideas, anyone??



    Just got the answer to this, and it worked beautifully:

    in the style.css, in the ‘Sidebar’ section put a block that says just this:

    #sidebar #slideshow-3 h4 {display:none;}

    Hey Speedmouse! Thanks so much for your help (sorry I didn’t see your postings earlier).

    I tried this but it didn’t work, I added it to my style.css file. Where did you see this fix? Perhaps there is more to the css?

    I also emptied my cache but it still didn’t work:


    Hi Jes,
    I have a solution for you:
    you have to remove the line

    $title = apply_filters(‘widget_title’, empty( $instance[‘title’] ) ? __(‘Slideshow’, ‘nggallery’) : $instance[‘title’]);

    That does the trick. 🙂

    Good luck!

    Hi, I found the above answer at a numbert of posts, however I can’t find the coding in my nextgen-gallery/widgets/widgets.php. I suppose it is because i have a newer version, being version 1.5.3

    I know i can just leave the title area empty, but then I’m left with too much space between the slideshow and the widget above it.

    This is my widget.php code, what should i delete, please?

    [Mod Note: Code segment removed. If you want to post large blocks of code, please use a pastebin (Alternate URL).]

    I added this to my css:

    .hslice h2 {

    That removes the title and the space above the images.
