Part 1 – How to Install
This is a first in a series of lessons on how to use the NextGen Gallery Plugin for WordPress. In this lesson we install the plugin.
Okay so now what we’re going to do is we’re going to look at a plugin that I’ve been asked repeatedly over this last year to do something on and finally, we’re going to do it. And that is the NextGen Gallery. And so, the first thing to do here in the NextGen gallery is to install it.
And so, we’ll go down to plugins and add new, type in NextGen. And what you’re going to see is there are all kinds of stuff with NextGen in it which means that there are a lot of additional cool things you can do with NextGen besides what comes out of the box. And so, we’ll take some time to look at some of those things over the coming weeks as well. But what we’re going to do today simply is the main NextGen Gallery which is this one right here. You can see it says I already have it installed because in fact, I have already installed it.
And so, once it’s installed, it shows up down here like this under Gallery. And if we buzz on over to the Gallery, I have not uploaded anything into this Gallery yet.
