I have installed the NextGEN Gallery plugin and have all my images in albums. Can someone please support me in displaying the NextGEN gallery with the use of the Galleryview plugin?

Is there any easier way?

you can add shortcode of Nextgen Gallery in template using do_shortcode function of wordpress. Link :- codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/do_shortcode – Arvind Pal Feb 5 '13 at 7:08

With both Nextgen Gallery and Nextgen-Galleryview active, the shortcode [nggallery id=1 template="galleryview"] should work with 1 being your gallery ID.

Hi, ellen, are you sure the shortcode will work with the mentioned plugin? (Galleryview) – brasofilo Feb 5 '13 at 22:49
