I used a plug in to retrieve all the post from a category. The post is displayed in an unordered list <ul><li> and everything if fine, even the <a> tags to the post.

Now, for more usefulness (it's a word?), I would like, on hover of the link, to display the first image of the nextgen gallery found in this post. I do not have enough know-how to retro engineer the ngg plugin, but there should be a way to get, let's say the thumbnail of a post and set it as a tooltip.

what plugin are you using to retrieve all the post from a category? – Bainternet Apr 18 '11 at 2:29
If you were to revisit this, does this help at all? – zigojacko Oct 18 '13 at 9:11

I just forget the idea. Doing it with NGG is way too complicated. I am looking for a different solution. Magic gallery (PRO) look good to me
