Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » Question about linking to Galleries from Albums

  • I like the quality of NextGen Gallery very much but I have a question. I am displaying an album with several galleries on a page using the compact view. When I click on an individual gallery the page reloads and I see the list of thumbnails. So far so good. Is it possible to display the title of the gallery with the thumbnails and a way to link back to the page with the album? I have experimented with creating a new page for every gallery and that page automatically gets the name of the gallery but I would prefer not to have to create a page for every gallery I add because I have a lot of galleries and would prefer to just upload new galleries into albums.

    Does this make sense to anyone? Displaying a gallery title in the gallery view seems so basic, am I overlooking a setting?

    Regarding how to get back from the gallery to the album, I know I can get back to the album view with the back button but I don’t know about my users, many of them are not exactly “internet proof”. A crumb trail would be ideal but that seems a lot to ask.

    Here is a link to my page: (it is a temporary url)

    Sorry for the long post and thank you for your feedback.

  • Under “Manage Gallery” when you create a new gallery you can click the “Add Page” button and NExtGEN will create the page and put the gallery shortcode into it for you.

    Breadcrumbs are probably the best method as many themes come with them. Alternatively if you use sidebars you could create a menu and use the Custom Menu widget to display it there.
