NextGEN Addon

Great !! It’s highly motivating when other people take NextGEN as base and extended it with new features. In the last two weeks three new addon’s are available :

NextGEN FlashViewer

Boris Glumpler extended my idea to integrate the famous Adobe Flash Plugins (SimpleViewer, TiltViewer, AutoViewer) from Airtight Interactive for NextGEN Gallery.


wp-greet from Tuxlog is a WordPress plugin to send greeting cards from your WordPress blog. It takes the images from NextGEN Gallery for your own greeting card.

NextGEN Smooth Gallery

Have fun !

    Hey Alex,
    the link for NextGEN FlashViewer is actually Forgot to set the right category. The link you used was only online for like 3 minutes, but obviously long enough… 🙂

    First, thanks for that great plugin.
    I have a problem during activation of NextGEN FlashViewer
    I got : “Sorry, NextGEN FlashViewer works only in combination with NextGEN Gallery”
    But NextGEN Gallery has been installed, and works fine

    Can you help me ?

    Environnement :
    Wordpress 2.5
    NextGenGallery 0.92

    I get the exact same thing as Eric.

    Sorry, NextGEN FlashViewer works only in combination with NextGEN Gallery

    I have everything running in the same environment and NextGEN Gallery is installed and working great. Any ideas on what the problem may be?

  7. Josh says:

    Ahh, figured it out. Not really figured it out, I just read the directions better. For anyone with the same problem the folder Nextgen-flashviewer needs to be renamed to nggflashviewer and then add your three files to the folder and activate. Once I renamed everything worked much better.

  8. Great developments! Thanx to everybody who worked on this.

    I’m very curious about the greeting card feature. That’s a nice new add-on.

    I know this is not the post i should comment it to, but as wptable post closed to comments, i couldn’t see any other way of contacting you.
    My request, wish, hope (kindly pick one)is to ask you to update the WPTABLE plugin for WordPress 2.5.
    I wish i never update my WordPress from older version, as your Plugin work as dream.
    Thank You…

    I get this error when activating the FlashViewer!
    (And off course, NextGen is already installed!)

    “Sorry, NextGEN FlashViewer works only in combination with NextGEN Gallery.”

    Any idea why I get this error?

  12. Martin says:

    Junipingla, deactivate the plugin, renamne the folder to nggflashviewer and activate.

  13. jaxxx says:

  14. catsudon says:

    Does anybody know how to change the default black background on the simpleviewer gallery? I put both a url then an absolute path to a .jpg file to be used as bg in the Flashviewer settings but it stays black. Travel-junkie’s site is forbidden so I am unable to find help anywhere else :(.

    Thanks in advance!

    I tried this plugin on WordPress 2.5 and the latest NextGen and when I click on the Gallery in the admin panel, I get sorry page not found.

  16. Boris says:

    Alex, ich habe gerade ein neues Plugin für NGG hochgeladen.

  17. halibutt says:

    Disregard my previous post, it was my stupidity… For the record, before trying this you should turn the option “Deactivate gallery page link” off. As simple as that.

  18. Hermann Ufer says:

    Sorry, NextGEN FlashViewer works only in combination with NextGEN Gallery.

    Diese Meldung erhalte ich, beim Aktivieren des PlugIns.

    Den Plugin-Ordner und das PlugIn habe ich in nggflashviewer umbenannt. Es ändert sich aber nichts.

    Woran kann es sonst noch liegen?

    WordPress 2.6.3
    nextGen 1.1 b
    Windows XP

    Danke im voraus

    I get the Sorry, “NextGEN FlashViewer works only in combination with NextGEN Gallery” even if I rename the plugin folder to nggflashviewer and ngg (0.99.1) are activated? Any idea why? 🙂

  20. Abhijeet says:

    after Leif’s question i tried to find the answ and here is my conclusion …..

    answer for LEIF

    if u go to C:xampphtdocswordpresswp-contentpluginsnextgen-flashviewer

    directory u ll find nggflashviwer.php it tries to fing the nggflash-swf directory in above hirerachial directory then try to activate swf url in the path ….

    so every time it finds directory and get url then try to load respective swf for the gallery..

    hope u get the answer

    Also few words for alex..

    update nggflash so that it ll create nggflash-swf directory

    automatically new user wont get confuse…

    thank you once again 4 such g8 plugin

  21. Abhijeet says:

    also if someone want to use without nextgen gallery then try this link and get the zip files….

    find respective flash viwers


    any queries r welcome to
