When I was setting up up the NextGen Gallery plugin to manage my portfolio I decided I also wanted to display a slideshow of the images on certain pages. Since NextGen has a Slideshow feature built in (sort of but I’ll get to that) I assumed that this would be a piece of cake (and why is something that is easy called a piece of cake anyway?). But it wasn’t as simple as I though it would be. Fortunately, I found some awesome resources to help me out.
Let’s step back for a second though. NextGen DOES have a slideshow but not ALL of the functionality is built in.
