I use NextGEN Gallery in combination with HighSlide to present a group of images. In between the two is the useful plugin WS-Highslide which embeds the HS code on every page automatically on the fly.
On some occasions, especially on sites that I build for others, I want to add a title to the displayed image for added information. This stumped me for a while as there are no check-boxes or other configuration options in either NGG or HS. A little investigation and reading lead me to the solution of adding the following lines to the HighSlide code into the WS-Higslide configuration script:
hs.captionEval = “this.thumb.title”; (this will display the contents of the “Title” field in NGG)
hs.captionEval = “this.a.title”; (this will display the contents of the “Caption” field in NGG)
I hope this helps others who may be trying to do the same.
