    Hello folks
    i have a problem with NGG plugin and when I want to chose an image from the Nextgen Gallery tab to set as a featured image

    When i set a featured image from the NGG tab the image doesn't show on the bottom right under the "Featured Image" box, the URL Link is like

    and it doesn't show and doesn't find the image

    Did you have the same problem with an Eleganttemplate and NGG plugin ? When you want to set a featured image from the NGG Tab ?

    Thanks folks


    [No bumping, thank you.]

    Hey I have the same issue. I'm using a custom template and I'm trying to call in the Next Gen image by using wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), 'large' );

    I'm assuming WP doesn't recognize the Next Gen images as attachements, so how do you recommend calling them in?

    I think to work we would need to recode the whole thumbnail's function from nextgen gallery...

    same here i have tried to use wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), 'large' ); and it doesn't work at all

    In another thread someone is having a similar problem.

    I've gotten the debugger out and I have a slight grasp on the issue.

    Their is definitely something broken with NextGen featured images.

    I can post more details later and maybe we can work out a fix.

    Same problem here, when I check the links with firebug in FF, it shows the links blank, which is causing my featured images not to load.

    Would greatly appreciate any help here.

    It seems that it is a general problem

    Who is the nexten gen developper? Could you please inform us if it is possible to troubleshoot this problem, any clue on HOW we can manage or modify this plugin to get the featured image working ?

    Thank you

    Says they'll fix it until Ver 2.0

    This has been an issue for quite a while, surprised it's barely looked into s:

    No idea. Ask the author, sorry couldn't help much. I've been searching for this as well for the longest. Hope they fix it soon, and have it compatible with most or all configs.

    We can't provide an exact date for v2.0 as we are making some dramatic improvements to the plugin, and a lot of development is going into this major upgrade. We hope for the earlier part of the new year, possibly early summer. Until then, you can set a featured image through WP upload/insert. We apologize for the inconvenience, there will be a fix for this in the plugin, in v2.0.
