Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » [Request] Search for gallery name

  • Resolved trinzia


    I used Nextgen to create over a thousand galleries.

    The search box in ‘manage galleries’ only searches for image names, not gallery names. The control to view the gallery names alphabetically doesn’t work.

    To find and edit a gallery, I have no option but to manually look through 30 pages of lists of gallery names.

    Request that image search be moved, and this box should search for the gallery, not the image.

    The select box used for adding images to a gallery is not alphabetical.

    Since it is by your ID#, to add a new image, I must manually scan the select box drop-down for 1/1000 gallery names which are not alphabetized.

    I also do not see a way to add an image when I am in the ‘Manage Gallery’ page for that gallery, so there’s no ‘workaround’ either.

    The UI needs work to be friendly for use in a large site.

    It would be great if it was possible to have only galleries in an album of own choice shown, when looking for the correct gallery to add a new image to. I suggest that if more than one album is created by admin – you have to first pick the correct album including an option to have ‘all’ shown (galleries from all albums in one list like now).
    I use galleries for different purposes (recipes, chiliplants, other stuff) and when adding new pic, I prefer not to see galleries in another category than the one I’m presently interested in.

    As trinzia mentions a search function and alphabetically sorting is a great wish from me as well.

    I love the plugin – but desperately needs to cut down on the time used for searching the right gallery to upload latest pics to.
