NextGen Image Gallery & TinyMCE

I'm trying to use the above Plugins with Atahualpa. Maybe I'm missing something, but I thought that the Description that I enter in the TinyMCE Editor would appear in my Gallery. I can customize the captions, but need more information for each image of a painting (size and media).

Am I just being obtuse? If TinyMCE doesn't do what I need - can you suggest something else?

thanks.

The captions for NextGen are handled in the NextGen gallery options. Then to show them you have to use the caption template as outlined on the NextGen site.

I think that I was using the wrong language in my earlier post. I wanted the Description to appear under the thumbnail. After searching around I found out that I had not put the JWImageRotator file in my NextGen plugin folder. Once I did that I saw the Description field under the Thumbnails and in the Slide Show.

Here's my final question on this topic: I'm using the NextGen default style (nggallery.css). Can you tell me where in this file I can change the font face, size and color of the descriptions that appear below the images when the slide show runs? At one point, in changing things I did get the font to change to Georgia (like the rest of the site). Damned if I know how I did it.

Thanks for you excellent help on this forum.

If atahualpa is affecting it, it would be in the image options. Try using firebug in firefox to examine the element and you'll see the CSS effecting it

How are you getting the captions under the images in a slideshow?

I installed NextGEN. Then I installed the NextGen TinyMCE Picture Description plugin. This added a Description field in Manage Gallery. Then I copied the JWImageRotator.swf file to the Plugin folder (as per a blog posting that I read). After this last step, I could see the text I added in the Description field below the thumbnail images and when I see the enlarged image.

I think that is how I'm seeing the descriptions under the images in the slide show. Can't think of any other way that they are getting there.

Thanks.

I just figured out that if I add the following to nggallery.css I get the desired font.

p {
font-family:Georgia,Times New Roman, serif;
font-size: .9em;
}

Now if I can only get the captions lined up correctly I'll be over this hurdle.
