    Hi Bart, glad you like it!

    Someone asked this question before and I don’t know if there is one.
    I will see if I have some time left to make this work in the next version.



    I would also like this to happen.

    I’m building a stock photo kind of site and NextGen Gallery is my choice of media handler. Though I would like for users to search for images. Like what stock photo sites are use to doing.



    I’m throwing my want in this mix as well.

    Much like barthoogendijk and vanduzled I too would love to see users able to search.

    Yeah, would like to see a user side search, too! Would be great !

    Would Like to add my yes please please too!

    Would like to add a bounty of $100 for this feature

    Just to let everyone know I didn’t forget the request for frontend search, I just didn’t have time to get to it yet. I will try to take a look later this month.

    Keep you posted!

    Just adding my wishes too πŸ™‚

    I look forward to have this feature, thanks for getting back to us Koen.
    Good luck.

    Hello there,

    i just wished the same and couldnt find it anywhere in the web, which is a mystery to me because it seems such a natural need, and i wonder that from the 11 million downloads of NGG there are not at least 1 million requesting this feature πŸ™‚

    With a little bit of inventiveness i now patchworked a two lines supereasy solution for myself, which should do it until Koen extended his plugin.

    It only works with one searchword for the moment, at least it just ignores additional words and not leading to malfunction.

    So i have just put

    <?php $search_query = get_search_query();
    echo do_shortcode( '[nggtags gallery=' . $search_query . ' ]' );?>

    into my search.php, and it works! As result it gives back a list of thumbs of the images that are tagged with the search term.

    Maybe someone can make it work even with more search terms ( i am not php enough but it should be very easy since just all spacebars have to be replaced with commas (search query gives back word1 word2 and the shortcode needs word1,word2))

    So far for tonight, i also wrote to photocrati, since i really cannot believe this doesnt exist yet. Maybe in PRO or PLUS versions they have it. I’ll keep you up-to-date.

    Best wishes
