Gallery Management: How to insert NextGen Gallery Album on a Page or Post in WordPress.
There are two types of albums included in these instructions; the expanded and compact versions
First Open the page or post the you want to add the NextGen Album to.
The album short code on the page looks like:
This is the extended version: [ album id=10 template=extend ]
This is the compact version: [ album id=10 template=compact ]
Every album has a number, in this case 10. Yours may be different.
Visual example of a compact and extend albums
The top horizontal images are the compact version, while those below, are the extended version.
Using the Text Widget to add an album to a widget area.
This is so simple that it defies explanation, but if you don’t know that you can do it then it obviously needs some explaining.
Navigate to Appearance>Widgets
Drag the text widget over to one of the widget areas. You can see an example of this on my fine art site.
Note: this works well for the compact version of the album. Using the extend version may yield unexpected results.
Congratulations you now have your images online for the world to see and appreciate!
