Using NextGen gallery with other slideshow pluginsIn order to use NextGen gallery in conjunction with other plugins that perform similar tasks (e.g. slideshow-gallery-pro you may need to do a bit of code hacking. I’ve written to the authors telling them that both NextGen and slideshow-gallery-pro used the same shortcode for slideshows [ slideshow]. Slideshow-gallery-pro has already been updated to support a new shortcode [gpslideshow], but NextGen gallery hasn’t been. So, unless you know the sequence that the plugins are loaded you might find the [ slideshow] shortcode has been hi-jacked by the ‘wrong’ plugin. To overcome this problem you can use additional shortcodes provided in the oik plugin ( name-‘oik”).
- Use [ ngslideshow] for a NextGen gallery slideshow
- Use [ gpslides] for the Gallery pro version.
