Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery Voting » [Plugin: NextGEN Gallery Voting] Not working with [nggtags] shortcode

  • Hello,

    I’ve already stated the problem in another topic, but I didn’t get any answers, so I’m making a new one.

    In short, voting works as expected for images when displaying them via the [nggallery …] shortcode, but it brakes when the images are displayed via the [nggtags …] shortcode (it displays the ratings but when trying to vote, it shows an error message, saying to try later… but it never works).

    I tried to find out which .php file handles the tags output in NGG (either template or core file) in order to add the call to the voting function, but I didn’t have any luck.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hey migf1

    I saw your post in the other topic, but forgot about it as that topic was about a different problem.

    Thanks for the feedback, there definitely seems to be a conflict somewhere when using the [nggtags] shortcode. I will try have a look at it sometime this week and get a patched version released asap.

    Thanks again for a the heads up 🙂

    Thank you very much, I really hope you can fix it 🙂

    Best regards!

    Hey mig

    I had some time to take a peak at that code today. Turns out there was just a simple conflict with variable names when using that shortcode.

    I have renamed the affected parts and committed the changes (1.7.1). Let me know if that sorts out your problem!


    Good morning, thank you very much for your efforts to improve this very useful plugin! It now works with [nggtags], however it seems to still have some issues.

    I’m using my own set of icons for the stars, which visually get corrupted on mouseover when in [nggtags] output screens (I haven’t tried with the default stars yet, but in [nggallery] output screens they work nicely).

    The most important issue though is that when one rates any image in [nggtags] genertated screens, the registered vote is always one star short (i.e. if you rate an image with say 4 stars, it registers the vote as 3 stars, and so on.)

    You can see an example of the above in the following links (they are form my site). The first one is a normal [nggallery] output screen, while the 2nd one it is generated via the [nggtags] shortcode:

    1. [nggallery] output
    2. [nggtags] output

    I’m really excited about this plugin and I’m really happy you keep supporting it!

    Best regards.

    Hi again mig

    I had a look at your pages, and I see what you mean about the ratings. It looks as though there is a width or something wrong somewhere in the CSS. It loads and works fine on my test installation (with the original stars).

    I see you have obviously used your own stars graphic. But Unfortunately I actually don’t really know enough CSS to see any errors. I will chat to a friend that specializes in this later in the week, and see if there is a conflict somewhere when using different graphics with [nggtags] that he can spot.

    Sorry about the problems, I really do appreciate the feedback though.

    I will let you know once I know more!

    Hello, thank you for keep looking into it! I just tried with the default plugin settings but it was not working right. It could be that I have also tweaked ng-gallery’s css (dunno).

    Since I managed to screw up everything (lol) I have temporarily deleted ngg-voting. I will install it again when I have more free time to fiddle with it again, and I’ll let you know.

    If you find anything in the meanwhile, I’d be happy to hear about it 😉

    Best regards.

    Hey mig

    Thanks for the update. I did have a brief look, but I can’t understand why it would work with one shortcode and not the other. It might be another conflict in some way with the NGGs css, but I can’t be too sure.

    I did notice a bug in that the css is being included repeatedly. I will have a patched version out pretty soon, but I don’t think that was the problem in your case.

    If you do try to enable everything again, let me know how it goes. I definitely don’t like bugs lurking around in my code 🙂
