Hi: I am trying to integrate eStore with NextGen gallery. I followed both the instructions – individual images as well as group images. This is the code next to the image in NextGen gallery (for individual method):
I have already taken backup of NextGen gallery.php and replaced with a copy of gallery-wp-estore.php and renamed to gallery.php and gallery-caption.php in the “view” folder of NextGen.
But the display shows only the image and no Add to Cart button or price. Earlier it showed add to cart button on top of the image with this code “class=”shutter set1]. I changed some effects in the gallery settings, then the add to cart and the code text both of them disappeared. Only the thumbnail is visible.
Did i miss anything somewhere?
Help will be really appreciated.

Not sure why you have done the following:
"I have already taken backup of NextGen gallery.php and replaced with a copy of ...."
You don’t need to rename anything. I am guessing you are referring to one of the following two instructions:
None of them tells you to rename the gallery files.
You upload the specified template file to the “view” directory of the NextGen gallery plugin then use the following shortcode to display the gallery:
[nggallery id=1 template=wp-eStore-auto]
“id=1” is the NextGen gallery ID so replace it with the proper gallery ID for your installation.
Once you have done the above please post a link to the page and I will take a look to see what issue you have.October 3, 2010 at 6:40 am #25002
I did as instructed but no button was displayed.
You can view the gallery here
For other links, I have used WP table reloaded (for example [http://premium-illustrations.com/biblical]) since I was trying to get NextGen and eStore integrated but wasn’t successful.
looking forward for your reply.October 4, 2010 at 1:04 am #25003wpCommerceModerator
Can you please do the following steps?
1. Do a fresh installation of nextgen gallery plugin.
2. Copy the eStore template file (gallery-wp-eStore.php) to the “view” directory of nextgen gallery plugin (do not rename anyfile)
You can download the template file from here –
3. Create a gallery and upload a photo.
4. Create a product in eStore with the name(e.g image), price(e.g 350.00) and Digital download URL (e.g. – your-site.com/gallery/GALLERY-NAME/image.jpg ) of the photo you uploaded.
5. Enter the following description in the “Alt & Title Text/Description” of the photo –
[wp_eStore:product_id:1:end] (replace 1 with the actual product id of the photo in eStore)
6. Save the gallery and create a new page.
7. Enter the following shortcode to show the gallery on the page –
[nggallery id=1 template=wp-eStore] (replace 1 with actual gallery ID. You can find the ID of any gallery under "Manage Gallery" of Gallery)
Let me know how it goes.October 6, 2010 at 6:32 am #25004
Ah! At last – it worked!!
So, I will have to configure each product a unique eStore ID so that its name shows in the shopping cart. Right? (Sigh!) If I give a common ID to all the images (using procedure #2 to configure eStore IDs), will it still show the names of each individual product in the shopping cart?

You can use this method if you don’t want to configure each product separately:May 2, 2012 at 4:00 pm #25006PandaMember
I’ve bought the estore plugin and would like to know if anybody knows how to add the “add to cart” button to wp’s own gallery function.June 23, 2013 at 8:50 am #25007jonathonfowlerMember
Using the solution above only allows one item to be added to the cart.
When you click on ‘buy it now’ I’m taken straight to PayPal checkout.
Any way to enable adding multiple items and the ‘add to cart’ option?
I want to sell multiple prints of images, no requirement for download option. Thanks.June 23, 2013 at 11:49 pm #25008adminKeymaster
The “add to cart” option lets your customers add as many items as they want. If you can’t add more than 1 item in the cart then there is an issue. Please post a link to the page where you have the buttons so I can check it.July 30, 2014 at 5:12 pm #25009
After getting a few upgrade issues handled (thanks Ivy;-), I am now integrating wp eStore with the Nextgen addon. My shop has many zipped files for sale. I have been used to dropping the file into Nextgen when updating it, but because I wasn’t getting updates as I should, I knew nothing about the “addon”.
My question is this: Do I need to totally re-configure what I did have on my sales page gallery, or does one of the 2 options on the addon automatically take care of making things as they were?
Not lazy; just busy.July 31, 2014 at 3:04 am #25010adminKeymaster
You don’t have to re-configure it. The addon just makes things a little easier.July 31, 2014 at 9:17 pm #25011
I can see how it will be easier once I get it right But,…
I uploaded the addon and it appeared to automatically adjust my gallery, and it’s close to what it was except the shortcode is showing.
For example: at [www.horsevector.com] front page, 5th row down you’ll see
“Horse Vector: Heads”
The gallery shortcode is [nggallery id=4 template=wp-eStore]
which corresponds to gallery with several pics in it.
The following is just one of them:
Horse Head R – VHD317x323 JPG $6.00
Any helpful hints as to what I need to do?
Thanks so much, Dave
ps – The code is what was there prior to uploading the addon.August 1, 2014 at 12:36 am #25012wpCommerceModerator
Hi, The eStore shortcode you are using is a little old (we changed that shortcode when WordPress introduced the shortcodes API). So I think it is causing a filtering issue.
We will investigate and try to give you a tweak on your site so you don’t need to replace every shortcode manually. I have sent you an email for it. Let me know if you don’t receive it.August 1, 2014 at 4:28 am #25013
The info you requested has been sent.

wpCommerce – Thank you so much for the assist!
Question: I have another site running the same setup that’s actually got an older version of both wpeStore and Nextgen (no addon). What advice would you offer me in upgrading to current (besides backing up ? Will I need to manually update the Nextgen side? Once I have it updated, will I have to do that manually every time an upgrade comes along, or will the addon “learn” and take care of it automatically in the future?
Again, I really do appreciate your help,
