I’ve just upgraded a blog to WordPress 2.7, and also upgraded NexGEN to version 1.0.2. I’m now having some serious issues with the functioning of NexGEN. I manage another blog that has all the same features as the one in question, EXCEPT that I have not yet updated NexGEN from version 0.99.1. I’ll try to describe the issue as carefullly as I can below:
Blog with WordPress version 2.7 and NextGEN Gallery version 0.99.1
⁃ In Description Field of each image is a title and a link to a post page with product information. (eg: Art Quilt: “Queen Elizabeth the First”
Go to Product Page)
⁃ On gallery page, each thumbnail displays a caption and a post link below it. When image is clicked the same title and link are available in the “Thickbox” display.
⁃ On the related post page the same image is displayed with the [singlepic=x,250,250,,right] tag, enlarges when you click on it, and displays the same title and link in the “Thickbox” display when the image is enlarged.
⁃ working example at http://www.camillegibson.com/blog/products/quilts/
Blog with WordPress version 2.7 and NextGEN Gallery version 1.0.2
⁃ On site with the v. 1.0.2 upgrade installed, all images are set up exactly as described above under version 0.99.1, with title and link embedded in Description field (eg: Gibson Pint Mug
Go to Product Page)
⁃ On gallery page, thumbnails no longer display caption below it. However, clicking on a thumbnail still displays the title and functioning link within the “Thickbox” display.
⁃ On the related post pages the same image is displayed–as sized–with the [singlepic=1,250,250,,right] tag, but the NexGen function is disabled… the image no longer enlarges when you click on it.
⁃ Also, on the post pages, there is a new fragment of text in front of the image that reads: Go to Product Page ” class=”thickbox” rel=”singlepic1″ > and the “Go to Product Page” is a functioning link that opens a blank page displaying the image file from the wp-content/gallery/ directory.
⁃ If I remove the HTML anchor code for the link from the image Description Field, then the [singlepic] display functions normally. The NexGEN enlargement will still show normal caption text in the Thickbox display (although it still doesn’t show up as a caption under the thumbnails on gallery pages).
⁃ I tried the same thing with a simple tag around part of the caption text in the Description Field and that worked correctly. So there appears to be some sort of conflict with the anchor tags being used to create a link in the caption, but not with other tags?
⁃ see example at http://www.gibsonpewter.com/blog/products/mugs/
When I did the update to NexGEN version 1.0.2. and went to GALLERY in the WordPress Dashboard, I had to update the database for NexGEN before i could do anything. SO I’m afraid also that I may not be able to move back to an earlier version of the plugin.
If anyone has any suggestions on how this might be fixed, or where I can find information on how to correct it, it would be much appreciated.
