Support » Plugin: Cyclone Slider » request : Integration with NextGEN

  • Resolved photoMaldives


    I’ve tried many different slideshows, galleries & sliders over the past few months, and every now & again I research the options for my latest project. This slider has great potential, is smooth & slick, and has a very logical & easy-to-use back end.

    BUT I can’t get it to add an image from my NextGEN gallery, where most of my images reside. When I ADD IMAGE, NextGEN appears as a tab, the image allows me to select it, but then does not appear in the slide. (Works fine with the normal WP media gallery). This would need a lot of effort to workaround (re-uploading 100 images) so unfortunately is a show-stopper for me. (Perhaps this problem is related to one previously reported – where the full image URL needs to be present for the image to display – but that is easily fixed.)

    So my feature request is for better integration with NextGEN.

    Thanks, and best of luck with this great plugin. 🙂

    Im working on this at the moment. This will be a great addition to cyclone slider. Thank you for the feedback!

    After poking around the nextgen source, adding images via nextgen tab is currently NOT practically possible. It require code changes in nextgen source code for cyclone to be able to hook its Add to slide button (I’m referring to function media_upload_nextgen in nextgen-gallery\admin\media-upload.php.) It would have been possible if hooks and filters are present but there is none.

    Thanks for you reply, kosinix. 🙂

    I’m not very technical, so the only thing I can do is point you to the gallery I use at the moment, which does integrate with NextGEN – scrollgallery –

    And there is a large list of compatible galleries here, on the official NexGEN blog –

    It would be so useful if you could perhaps copy this functionality !

    One of the main issues is that NextGEN does offer excellent photo-management tools, but is quite a large investment in time to setup – once invested, it can be difficult to move away from.

    Thanks again.

    Hello photoMaldives,

    Just letting you know that Cyclone Slider 2 v2.1.0 is now released with the ability to import images from nextgen.


    great work, kosinix – thanks for the plugin update, and thanks for letting me know. 🙂

    Thx for good piece of software. I like it very much!

    But i have a problem with nextgen integration. I have a gallery which contains 68 pictures and i can import only 12 images from it. Is it bug or feature?

    Best Regards,

    Hello denethorr,

    Im not sure but one possible reason is that the php script times out before completing the copying, since 68 pictures is a lot. I have no solution at the moment but I suggest you increase max execution time in your php.ini.
