Nextgen Scroll Gallery: A WordPress Plugin that allows you to use the awesome Mootools ScrollGallery from BMo-design on your NextGen-Gallery galleries.

If you want to to use this Plugin on your blog, you need to use the very cool WordPress gallery manager: NextGen Gallery. So install the NextGENeration Gallery Plugin and upload some pictures. Copy the ‘[scrollGallery id=xxx]’ tag in your post an replace ‘xxx’ with the NextGEN Gallery id, for example with 1.

After the installation, you will find an admin interface, with which you can adjust the plugin settings.

This gallery do not use flash, so no extra browser plugin is required and search engines can crawl your content easily.

If you have some questions or you need instructions look at BMo-Design – Nextgen Scroll Gallery. There you will find instructions and discussions, which can help you.

If you want a special adaptation to the needs of your page, you can commission me at BMo-Design.

This is stable version 1.8.0. Since the code of NextGEN Gallery was massivly changed in version 2.0.X, I decided to develop a new version of my plugin. You can download it at

Of Course you can change the style, borders and colors! Go into the plugin-folder “nextgen-scrollGallery” there you will find a folder “css” and the “scrollGallery_greyDesign.css”.
Here you can add custom css designs, like the “scrollGallery_greyDesign.css”.
I recommend to copy your “scrollGallery_customDesign.css” in your theme folder. Because if you make a update of the plugin, the “css” folder will be replaced.
After you save a css-file in this “css” folder, it will be possible to change the style of the gallery in the admin interface.

The dimensions of thumbnails and images can be changed in your NextGEN Gallery plugin.

Since version 1.5 the do_shortcode() function is supported and since version 1.6 you can use [sG_thumbsSolo id=xxx] and [sG_imagesSolo id=xxx] instead of [scrollGallery id=xxx] to show only thumbs or images.

Since version 1.7 it is possible to set links to thumbs and images. To set a link, go into your NextGen Gallery and edit the image descriptions. If you write: [scrollGallery thumblink=”” thumblink_target=”_blank”] you will set an external link to my page, which will open in a new window (target=”_blank”).
Also you can set image links and image targets. Here’s an example with all the possibilities: [scrollGallery imglink=”” thumblink=”” imglink_target=”_self” thumblink_target=”_blank”].
