Nexgen gallery

The Nexgen plugin for WordPress is very nice and I know I will forget how to implement the damned thing if I don’t write this down, somewhere. Also, there is a shitpile of releases and they are quite different. in fact, the latest releases feature a slideshow which absolutely has problems in Explorer. I installed – I think – version 1.52 (I’ll check and update this thing) and it was da’ bomb! No slideshow but an incredibly nice Java display deal called “PicLens” – you can see it here: Nexgen with PicLens. Also, search this site for “HTML Museums” and you’ll find a large number of these versions – all the way back to 1.3.x.

When writing a page/post, you can use the follow tags:

For a slideshow : [slideshow id=x w=width h=height]

[album id=x template=extend] or [album id=x template=compact]
