How to use it?

In order to use NextGen Gallery, you were suposed to write [ gallery=12345 ] on your post/page where you wanted your gallery to show up.

To use Nextgen Smooth Gallery, just change [ gallery=12345 ] to [smooth=12345]

That simple :-)

Admin Page

No more going to the source code. Set the default values for all your galleries from the admin page.

Special Feature – Preview

See what your gallery will look like before publishing it

Special Feature – IFrames

Jon Design’s Smooth Gallery is known for not working properly along other JS libraries like prototype and jquery (some of your plugins might use them).

Now you can make all your galleries appear inside an IFrame, therefore overcoming this problem

Specific Gallery

If you want a specific gallery to display a configuration other than your default one, you can use:

[smooth=id:xx; width:xx; height:xx; timed:xx; delay:xx; transition:xx; arrows:xx;
        info:xx; carousel:xx; text:xx; open:xx; links:xx; margin:; align:;]
        id: The id you were already using on [ gallery=id ]
     width: Width of your image container
    height: Height of your image container
     timed: true/false to slideshow your images
     delay: Time in miliseconds before moving to the next image
transition: Animation when moving to the next image: fade, fadeslideleft,
            continuoushorizontal, continuousvertical, crossfade, fadebg
    arrows: true/false to see the arrows for next/previous images
      info: true/false to show the image description
  carousel: true/false to see all thumbnails
      text: Text relative to the Carousel
      open: true/false to show the carousel opened/closed
     links: true/false to click on the image and open the original image alone
    margin: Distance from the gallery border to the text
     align: Gallery alignment: left, right, center, float_left, float_right

You can use any option above and in any order:

[smooth=id:4; arrows:true; carousel:true; links:true; width:500; height:300;]
