[Resolved] [Plugin: NextGEN Scroll Gallery] Custom Thumbnail Size (Not Nextgen Default)

  • Great plugin! I’d like to use a custom image size for the thumbnails, not what the nextgen thumbnail size is.

    Generally this is possible on page templates through a WP image size
    ex:
    add_image_size( 'blog-thumb', 380, 290, true ); in functions.php
    and then the_post_thumbnail('blog-thumb'); in the page template

    I figure it might be a plugin hack to change how the thumbnail size is diaplayed but maybe you could point me in the right direction or consider adding this feature.

    One UX/performance note: It takes awhile for the thumbnails to load, and while loading all that is displayed is Nextgen Scrollgallery in text via the image alt tags — it doesn’t provide a favorable impression for a professional site. Could we sort out a way to have a loading animation display until the thumbs are all loaded? Thanks for your help!

    you can change the thumbnail size of the images in nextgen. Mark all images and generate new thumbnails. In the dialog you can set up a other thumbnail size.

    UX/performance note:
    You can remove the image alt in php.

    Thanks for the reply! It seems Nextgen only allows one defined size of thumbnail. Am I mistaken?

    I’ll take a look at the plugin code to sort out the changes. Would be a great additional feature to remove the alt text (and/or pull meta data to fill it out) without having to hack the plugin.

    Thanks again for the great plugin and support!

    hm, I think it use the size of the next gen thumbs, so if you set up different sizes of thumbs in nextgen you have different thumbs… or not?
