Do you use NextGEN gallery for your WP blog??

by zsolt 9 replies

I am looking for someone who's familiar with the NextGEN gallery plugin for WordPress.

I built a website for a restaurant using WP, and also installed NextGEN as it is highly recommended throughout the WP community.

Thing is: NextGEN hates IE 7!!! Okay, I hate it too, but the majority of surfers still use IE, so it's important that this glitch gets fixed!

Look here to see what I am talking about (use IE, not firefox!):

Any thought on this? Anybody know of a remedy?

    What's wrong with it?

    I didn't see any problem with my IE7. (Vista SP1)

      It seems to be working fine for me too... IE7 & FF3.

      What are the symptoms you're seeing?

        I use the NextGen Gallery plugin at:

        And it looks fine in IE7.

        I also checked your link and there is nothing wrong with it. I checked in both IE7 and Google Chrome.

          Darn!! This is confusing. See, I use two computers, one in my apartment and another at my folks' place. I worked on this project on the computer in my apartment. And when I check the gallery in IE, and clicked on a thumbnail only half of the large pic was displayed. It was positioned so low in the screen that the lower half just did not fit on the screen. When I tried to scroll down the background did scroll, but not the picture.
          I posted this problem to official forums a few days ago, but have not received any answer yet.
          I just came home, to my parents' house a few hours ago and logged into the warrior forum just to see that everybody could open the gallery in IE with no problem at all. I rapidly fired up IE and guess what? The gallery works just fine!
          So, is only that I have a faulty IE on my other computer? Anyway, thanks soooo much guys for checking this out for me. I am glad it was only my IE and not a problem with NextGEN.

          Thanks again!

            Clicking on the thumbnail was the information needed.
            Check the css file and see if you can change the positioning of the pic.
            I had the same thing happen as you so it's with the plugin and not just you.

    OK, I see what he means, the position of the picture is off.
    When you click a thumbnail the picture loads a little down from the normal place and you cannot scroll down to see the complete picture.
    At least I can't,Im using XP Pro, SP3 with IE7 installed.

    • Profile picture of the author zsolt seems not everything is alright yet. What buffles me is why it works for some people and not for others. If it is something in the css file, the picture should appear toward the lower part of the sceen for everybody, shouldn't it? Why does it load fine in one IE and not in others?

      Let's see...I use XP Pro on both my computers. But the one at my apartment has SP3 installed, while the other at my folks' place still only has SP2 installed. The PC with SP3 loads the pictures at the wrong place, while the other with SP2 displays it correctly.
      But...could the new service pack be the source of this glitch? Seems unlikely to me, but we could test it. If the large pics display correct for those with SP2 and misplaced for those with SP3, then maybe it's time to write to the author of the plugin.

    Some things to check:

    -have you cleared your cache and refreshed the page?

    -are you using a different font size on the second computer - some WP themes break badly if the font is increased (via holding down the CTRL key and using the scroll mouse in Firefox, for example).

      Unfortunately the problems lies somewhere else. Clearing the cash and refreshing didn't help.
      The font size is the same on both computers. Actually, the two PC are very much identical as far as system settings go, because I am quite picky about fine tuning the os to my likings. Do only difference I think thing about right now is the version of the service pack.

      I just checked the gallery from the computer in my office where they still use IE6, and it worked just fine.
