SuperSlider-Show now integrated with nextgen gallery (3 posts)

    For all of you nextgen gallery users,
    SuperSlider-Show will now connect directly to your nextgen galleries and provides an advanced slideshow for your images.

    Check it out and let me know what you think.

    Great Idea
    But I am unable to get this to work.
    In general, there is no real documentation on short code usage, including nextGEN capabilities. The example is the only help I can find on short codes:

    [slideshow id="12, 23, 34" show_type="flash" image_size="medium" pop_size="large" first="3" color="#1b1b1b, #ffffff, #666666, #999999" height="330" width="480" delay="2400" duration="1200" linked="image" captions="true" overlap="true" thumbnails="true" thumbsize="minithumb" random="true" loop="true" loader="true" controller="true" center="true" resize="true" clear="both" ]

    I can figure most of this out - but can't get it to work with nextGen.

    First issue (solved) is there is no meta box added to the page editor (posts only).
    That clears up some of the short code confusion. No where could I find the tag for nextgen galleries except by using the meta box in the post page.
    Simply: [gallery id="nextgen-8"] - shows gallery #8.

    Next issue - the defaults for many options is "true" or on - but the advanced box only gives the option to keep items on. Easy to generate the short code, then edit "true" to "false".

    Defaults should be "false" or off unless box is checked or show what was selected in the superslider admin menu. Very helpful if parameters such as ken burns effect should be visible in the meta box

    Plugin works - not as smooth as nextgen with flash effects.
    I do want to say 'thanks' - this is a much needed plugin. With just a little clean up it could be "awesome" but for a new user operation and documentation is scattered and confusing.
