Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » Post just a mosaic of a few pics representing an image gallery

  • Hello, I would like to illustrate my blog post with a bunch of pics. However, instead of posting an entire image gallery in middle of the blog and taking up a lot of space, I would like to just post a mosaic of the first few pics, plus a count of the total number of pics. Like this:

    mosaic of pointing to image gallery

    When the user clicks, it goes to lightbox and is able to click through images or goes to the FULL image gallery.

    Can this plugin can this? I think DailyMail website did this until recently. Just a mosaic of first few pics plus the count of total pics – instead of actually posting a million thumbs inside a blog post.

    @polaatx – Although we do have a Pro Mosaic display type found in NextGEN Plus and NextGEN Pro it does not have the feature you are describing at this time. You may be able to create a custom template that leverages our NextGEN Pro Mosaic display type although this is not the place to discuss this as these forums are for the support of plugins hosted in the WordPress plugin directory.

    Thanks for asking!

    Hi Cais,

    thank you for your reply.

    May I ask what solutions your product might have for the problem I’ve described?

    The problem is that my gallery might have a lot of pics in it – maybe 30 or more. I want SOME of the pics of gallery appear in middle of a blog post but not all of them, plus a link to the full gallery. That way user is clued that there is a full gallery of pics and at the same time the blog is not littered with dozens of thumbs.

    For such a problem have can you recommend a solution using your product?

    If not, what is the usual method of linking to a NextGen gallery from inside a blog post?

    @polaatx – Please feel free to use our contact form at to ask any pre-subscriptions questions you may have for NextGEN Plus or NextGEN Pro which provide our Pro Mosaic display type. As it is, your example image cannot be accomplished with the default Pro Mosaic templates we provide.
