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?

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)

$sqlquery = "SELECT * FROM wp_ngg_pictures 
    WHERE gid=3 AND wp_ngg_pictures.gid='wp_ngg_pictures'.galleryid ";
$pageposts = $wpdb->get_results( $sqlquery );
if ( $pageposts ) {
    global $post;
