Configuring Carousel to use NextGEN Gallery Carousel Template

Recommended Posts

Hello.  First time poster, longtime pagelines fan.  I'm trying to configure the carousel metadata to use the NextGEN Gallery Carousel Template instead of the default template.  

 

After a bit of tinkering, I've been able to get pagelines to display the carousel in the expected nextgengallery template format by specifying in the NextGen Gallery ID For Carousel (Carousel Page Template / NextGen Mode) box a shortcode:

[nggallery id=1 template=carousel]
which is super but it also displays on the rendered page some unwanted text, specifically "template=plcarousel".   I did a Web search and can see a couple of people asked about this in the past but the threads are old and closed and don't have a resolution.  And I've found a few sites which look like they use pagelines and have the same problem.   When searching I also found a(n) (old) listing of the code for /sections/carousel/sections.php and can see the following line:
echo do_shortcode('[nggallery id='.$ngen_id.' template=plcarousel]');[/code]

which I presume is responsible for generating the "template=plcarousel" text I can see on my page.

 

Oh, I think I see what's happening...because I'm specifying a template attribute in the shortcode in the carousel_ngen_gallery input text box it doesn't expect the second template attribute value in the carousel/sections.php.

 

If my understanding is correct, is there any way you could extend the carousel metadata to allow users to specify which nextgengallery template type they want to use in the carousel nextgengallery metadata?

 

And is there anything I can do in the meantime to work around it?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

 

The "NextGen Gallery ID For Carousel (Carousel Page Template / NextGen Mode)" only supports the Gallery ID, so you simply enter the ID for example, 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 etc...

 

You simply enter the value of the ID and nothing more. The "NextGen Gallery ID For Carousel (Carousel Page Template / NextGen Mode)" doesn't support any other option.

 

If you would like to use Nextgen Gallery with a nextgen template, then you will need to use the Shortcode and add it to your page/post.

      The Grams section of Platform 5, is lacking lots of important features, that DMS multigram was having, there is no space for another user ID asie the default user, that was one of the strongest point of multigrams, because the Hashtag option cannot capture everyone, multiple User ID is the default standard for Instagram,  Also there is no carousel or slide on this one, it means now that if you want to display 18 pictures in one page all will be visible at once thats not good engineering.
      My appeal to the Pagelines Team, guys please let the next update have all the DMS Multigrams features that is missing on Platform 5 Grams, that will bring it to its glory...

      I haven't figured out how to get the "Sync Loaded Item" option in templates menu of Platform 5 to stay checked. It doesn't give me an option to save settings when I select it, and when I select it then click off the editor, it unselects. Also if I select it before loading a template, it doesn't stay checked there either.  Whats going on?

      Hi,
      I created a Pagelines template for a "Post type" post. Whenever creating a new post page it firstly display that template post and I have to manually change it in the scope from "All of type posts " to "Current page". 
      Is there a way to fix that?

      I'm building a website in a dev environment at http://162.144.182.17/~uescocra.
      I want to import a bunch of products, and then have the products have a different template than the default template. 
      I also want to change the default template for blog posts.
      Before I go making changes, can I do this where the post type of "products" has its own global template, and the same with blog posts?
      For instance, in a product I might want to have a widget for categories, similar products, etc., and in the blog I may want list of the latest posts, blog categories, link to an email sign-up landing page, etc.
      Thanks.

      Is there a shortcode or a way to automatically pull the site name into the footer or elsewhere?
