[Resolved] Specify the gallery template as “download”

    Hey mate,

    Apologies in advance if I sound daft. I am trying to set up a proofing gallery for my clients using your plugin with NGG, and have followed the instructions from the plugin page, but I can’t for the life of me find out what ‘specify the gallery template as “download” ‘ mean. or how to ‘specify it.
    Help would really be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Chris.

    G’day Chris,

    Look at the two shortcode examples on the installation page.

    cheers,

    Thanks Ross,

    Just to verify…all I have to do is put the shortcode with the gallery ID and the template=download into the post and bob’s your uncle?

    Cheers mate,

    Chris.

    It’s working now. Thanks mate. Just one more thing though. Here is the link to the page:

    It is a bit muddled at the moment. How do I sort out the layout so it looks neater? Like have the ‘select all’ and ‘download’ buttons at the bottom?

    Thanks,

    Chris.

    There are two ways you can alter the styling of the download template:

    1. CSS: the form has an id of “ngg-download-frm”, so you can target elements inside the form with CSS rules like #ngg-download-frm hr { clear: both; }
    2. Custom template: you can copy the download template from the plugin to your theme and change it; read Creating a custom gallery template for NextGEN Gallery for general information on customising NextGEN Gallery templates.

    I couldn’t look at your gallery page because it was password-protected, so can’t comment specifically about your website.

    cheers,

    Hi .. I’m having a similar problem! I have a gallery uploaded and working. I’ve specified [nggallery id=1 template=download] but all I get is the gallery … no option to download?

    What am I doing wrong please? I’ve driving myself nuts going around in circles! 🙂

    @rachfont: sounds a lot like this problem. If you have another NextGEN Gallery plugin that adds a template, disable it and see if that fixes it. Otherwise, temporarily switch themes to twentytwelve and see if that fixes it. That will tell you what is doing the nasty!

    cheers,
    Ross

    Awesome thanks @webaware – will have a look now! 🙂

    OK switched to 2012 but still no joy …

    I have 2 NextGen Gallery plug ins installed:

    NextGEN Download Gallery
    NextGEN Gallery

    I guess I only need one??

    Just deleted NextGEN Download Gallery and still no change … hmmm

    Here’s a list of the plug ins which are now installed (in case you’re aware of any conflicts with them)

    Disable Comments
    Display Posts Shortcode
    J Shortcodes
    NextGEN Gallery
    Simple Slider

    @webaware

    @rachfont: you need both NextGEN Gallery and NextGEN Download Gallery to be installed and activated.

    I don’t know about any of your other plugins, so I suggest you try deactivating (not deleting) each one in turn until either you find the culprit, or run out of plugins.

    If none of the plugins is doing this, then it must be the theme. Try switching to twentytwelve and see if that works. If it does, your theme needs fixing.

    cheers,
    Ross

    ok thanks – have already switched to twenty twelve but no luck – link shows above 🙂

    woohoo … uninstalling NextGEN Download Gallery and reinstalling fixed it!!! Thanks! 🙂

    Found another problem … the ‘select all’ button doesn’t do anything?
