WordPress NextGEN GalleryView – Change Size of GalleryView

UPDATE (Feb 20, 2011): #1 and #2 below no longer apply to the CSS. #3 below is still applicable.

UPDATE (Jan 2, 2011): I’m no longer using the below-stated NextGEN Galleryview plugin by Alex Rabe. Instead, I’m using WordPress NextGen GalleryView by John Brien because it has fewer JS conflicts.

1. To customize the display size of images “within” the NextGEN GalleryView gallery, alter:
– File: nggGalleryview/galleryview.css
– (approx) Line 57:

.galleryview .panel img { width: 400px; height: 230px; }

2. To customize the overall size, colors, etc of the NextGEN GalleryView gallery itself:
– File: nggGalleryview/view/gallery-galleryview.php
– (approx) Lines 40-51:

panel_width: 400,
panel_height: 300,
frame_width: 40,
frame_height: 40,
transition_interval: 0,
overlay_color: '#222',
overlay_text_color: 'white',
caption_text_color: '#222',
background_color: 'transparent',
border: 'none',
nav_theme: 'dark',
easing: 'easeInOutQuad'

    Good info, any idea on how to change the order of the images displayed in GalleryView?

      I added a screen-shot at the end of the post showing where to sort the Gallery images.

    I’d spent four straight hours trying to solve that ridiculous monster arrow before finding your post. I was ready to give up on a photo gallery altogether. Thank you thank you thank you.
