Flipper - displaying NextGen Pics - how?

6 posts in this topic

Again I need some help....


As I learned carousel = flipper, right?


In the "old" framework days I could choose between posts, flickr, nextgen and hooks in the carousel section.


Question: How do I integrate a nextgen pic in the DMS Flipper? Is there an option to do so?


I found the following note in the flipper setup box: "Tip

Use a plugin to create custom post types for use with Flipper."


But I do not really understand which plugin should I use? How it works. And how I can integrate the nextgen gallery pics.


Is there anybody out there who knows how to do?

I appreciate very much your help. Thanks :)

Flipper isn't like the Carousel section from PageLines, its is a separate section and unfortunately you can't integrate Nextgen gallery images. The Flipper uses the Posts Feature thumbs.


Can't you just use the Nextgen gallery plugin, I thought it had a carousel shortcode ?

The problem is that Nextgen does not work in DMS. The lightbox is not functioning. This effect: http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/help/shortcodes/#gallery cannot be done in dms. I have tested it. When you click an image it just opens a screen with that image.

No issue for when I did a quick test of Nextgen gallery.

    • Flipper suggestion: DMS2 aspect ratio for fast switching from DMS2 to PL5
      By janpeeters+
      I would like to suggest the following… The new PL5 Flipper has different aspect ratio's then the previous DMS2 version. To facilitate fast switching/rebuilding from DMS2 to PL5 I would suggest adding a third aspect ratio option which is the same as DMS2. 
      Thanks, Jan

    • Hide Flipper Thumbnails?
      By frakture
      Hi there, wondering if there is a way to hide or turn off the flipper thumbnails, so all you have are the blog titles (and dates)? I've searched and haven't seen this question asked before. Thanks!

      Ok, so I used the flipper widget and looks good. now when I click on the first post (page) it looks good.  Now when I click on the second post(pg) it takes me to the correct page but when I make a change to this page it is affecting the first post. I've tried to unlock template, change template,  save template and still can't figure it out. I would like all the pages in the flipper to be the same but change pics and bios. 
      This is just like the one used in your demo. (About Me)
      I am a noob and very confused. Can you please help.
