Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » Slideshow (flash) without shuffle does not work.

  • Resolved D. G.


    Installed a fresh WP3.6.1 and installed NextGEN Gallery 2.0.30

    First i discovered that i was missing GD library within my Linux configuration, that makes the upload / thumbnail creation etc. possible!

    Now i run WP and NextGEN on the following:
    Operating System : Linux (32 Bit)
    Server : Apache/2.2.22 (Debian)
    MYSQL Version : 5.5.31-0+wheezy1
    PHP Version : 5.4.4-14+deb7u4
    PHP Safe Mode : Off
    PHP Allow URL fopen : On
    PHP Memory Limit : 128
    PHP Max Upload Size : 2M
    PHP Max Post Size : 8M
    PCRE Backtracking Limit : 500000
    PHP IPTC support : Yes
    PHP XML support : Yes

    Graphic Library
    GD Version : 2.0
    FreeType Support : Yes
    FreeType Linkage : with freetype
    T1Lib Support : No
    GIF Read Support : Yes
    GIF Create Support : Yes
    JPEG Support : Yes
    PNG Support : Yes
    WBMP Support : Yes
    XPM Support : No
    XBM Support : No
    JIS-mapped Japanese Font Support : No

    Made a gallery which must be ran sequentially.
    But whatever i tried, in the main settings and the page settings, the shuffle function does nothing, the pictures always are shown randomly.

    How to fix this, because i made this new installation with the same plugins as i made the old site 5 years ago.
    In that time NextGEN (version 0.74) did run the flash sequentially.
    Why can this not be done nowadays on version 2.0.30?
    Also in the old version I see the filename of the pictures, which is not possible in the new version?

    Regards DG.

    @d.G. – If this functionality was available in our NextGEN Legacy version(s) then please submit a Bug Report with your specifics so we can have a closer look at what might be causing this issue.

    Here is the link:

    Bug reported 🙂

    And found myself a workaround:

    Nextgen slideshow only plays random, to fix (workaround) this, change the following:

    File: index.php
    Location: /wordpress/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/nextgen_basic_gallery/templates/slideshow/

    and change this rule:
    $swfobject->add_flashvars( 'shuffle', $flash_shuffle, 'false', 'bool');

    in to:
    $swfobject->add_flashvars( 'shuffle', $flash_shuffle, 'true', 'bool');

    This solved my slideshow!
    Even the switch ‘Shuffle’ in nextgen settings does what it should do!
    Randomize when ‘Yes’, sequence when ‘No’ 🙂

    Regards, DG.
