NextGEN Gallery ColorBoxer
[resolved] Single Enlarged Image with no Next/Previous Links (2 posts)

    I'm not having success getting my gallery to display using Colorbox. When I click an image on the gallery page, I see the enlarged image, with no border or next-previous buttons (even though there are multiple images in the gallery).

    Here's my setup. I've installed NextGen gallery version 1.9.7 and NextGen Gallery Colorboxer 1.0 version on WordPress version 3.4.2. I'm using my own custom theme, which is pretty bare-bones. I've created a NextGen album template and gallery template in order to customize their appearance. On the live site, the user accesses the galleries through the albums. (e.g. In the back end, there is an album page with the short code [album id=2 template=spanidev gallery=spanidev], instead of gallery pages with the shortcode [nggallery id=2])

    In the NextGen -> Options -> Effects page, I see that Colorboxer has created the following settings for me:
    JavaScript Thumbnail Effect: Custom
    Link Code line: class="mycolorbox" rel="%GALLERY_NAME%"

    (Note: If I configure NextGen to use the Thickbox effect, I DO get the border and next/previous links with the enlarged images.)

    I also tried creating a test page where I used the gallery shortcode [nggallery id=2] and didn't reference my NextGen templates and got the same results.

    Can you offer some advice on how to get this working? Thanks!

    Hi alisontaylorbc,

    Thanks for using NextGEN Gallery ColorBoxer!

    I have a few ideas, but it's difficult to say without seeing your site and source code...could you provide a link to the page in question, at all? (if you'd prefer it remain private, you can email me here).

    Out of interest, are you receiving a "file is not writable" error in the admin on your plugins page or on ColorBoxer's settings page?
