I have made a gallery in next gen, uploaded images, made a new page and put this code on it
[nggallery id=1 template=wp-estore]
but when i view the page i get this error
Rendering of template gallery-wp-estore-auto.php failed
As i understood it i would be able to turn my galleries into shops so that customers can add products to basket from the gallery?
I sell wedding photos as prints (i have hundreds!) please do not tell me i have to make each image a product?
I have read all the instructions several times and am just confused now!
Help pleaseJune 4, 2010 at 3:39 pm #21287
Please ignore the ‘auto’ section of this
Rendering of template gallery-wp-estore-auto.php failed it displays as this

The code to show the gallery on the page should be
[nggallery id=1 template=wp-eStore]
Looks like you didn’t put the ‘S’ of wp-eStore in capital letter.June 5, 2010 at 12:57 am #21289wpCommerceModerator
Make sure that you don’t have other plugins(e.g. NextGEN Smooth Gallery, NextGEN-FlashViewer, NextGen Gallery Add-ons and so on) installed which enhance the features of nextgen gallery plugin. It might cause problem too.June 7, 2010 at 11:56 am #21290
Thanks for that WP , (I don’t have any other plugins at the moment).
I have got the gallery to display and have added the product details (I am getting customers to enter the image number so that I dont have to configure every one of my hundreds of images as separate products!), this is another problem for another day.
I have read virtually everything about this but my problem now is that I can’t get the gallery to display nicely, it’s all a bit of a mess so I have tried using this code
[wp_eStore_fancy:product_id:9:end] but it makes no difference, strangely though if I put the same code into the image alt/desc box in the gallery it works but the image sits outside the fancy box. As I undersdtand it this is wrong and the code has to go into the additiional info box in the add/edit product sheet. I have added the code to the first image in a gallery so you can see what is happenning, you can find it here http://www.chapmanphotographics.com/?page_id=44
Thanks againJune 8, 2010 at 1:51 am #21291
you are using a fancy display shortcode that displays the product with thumbnail image, description, name etc. You should use a simple button using the following shortcode if you are using it with NextGen gallery. This way the button will just sit below the thumbnail image of the NextGen gallery.
[wp_eStore:product_id:1:end]June 8, 2010 at 6:16 am #21292
One last question.
When [would:how] I use the fancy code?
How do I get the variations, size, price etc lined up underneath the image thumbnail because if you look they seem to be aligning right at the moment?
Ok so that’s two lol

Remember, not everyone uses the NextGen gallery plugin together with the eStore. The fancy display gives them an option to display a product using a thumbnail, product description, name, price etc.
Your variations are aligned center but they are too big compared to the thumbnail image so it’s pushing towards the right. Just increase the thumbnail size of your images from the NextGen gallery settings menu and it will appear nicely on that page.June 9, 2010 at 7:43 am #21294
Could do with some input about the way the variations are lining up under the thumbnail.
ThanksJune 9, 2010 at 1:11 pm #21295
You need to increase the thumbnail size of the images in NextGen gallery. So if you go to the “options” menu under the nextgen gallery you will find a tab called “Thumbnails”. You can specify the thumbnail size in the “Width x height (in pixel)” field. use something like 200 x 150 and see how that looks.June 9, 2010 at 3:42 pm #21296
Tried various sizes none of which make any difference?
ThanksJune 9, 2010 at 3:48 pm #21297
Have tried various size combinations but none of them seem to make any difference.
