1) Script Title: Thumbnail Viewer 2

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/thumbnail2.htm

3) Describe problem: I can't even tell you how many hours I've been researching and monkeying with code to try to get this to work, so I'm really hoping someone can help me! (I am an amateur, but I can usually figure it out, so I'm really frustrated.)

Anyway, I'm an artist, and I'd like to add a page on my WordPress blog that's a gallery, similar to this one: http://marilynfenndesign.com/portfolio_gallery/portfolio_illustration.html or this one: http://danidraws.com/. I have the NextGen Gallery plug-in on my site, but it doesn't allow me to style the gallery with thumbnails and mouseovers, etc., like on the example websites. (I found Dynamic Drive through the source code in that first link.)

So I've been searching and searching, and I just can't come up with something that works. Then I discovered the Thumbnail Viewer 2, and I think it might be my solution. But, having followed the installation instructions, nothing seems to be happening. I just get a blank page. It's obvious to me I've missed something or fiddled around so much that it's not working right, but I'm getting totally lost now.

Is there a way to integrate the Thumbnail Viewer 2 with NextGen Gallery? And with WordPress? And what might I be missing that's causing it not to work at all? Ack!

My website is http://www.juneatnoon.com. The template for the gallery page (/gallery) is different to accomodate a wider-screen gallery with no sidebar, but it's a mess right now. :)

Thanks so much in advance!

Ok, I am an idiot. I realized part of my problem was that the longer I went on, the sloppier things got, and I didn't have some of my url's right. It appears that it's now working if I manually put links into the page.

I still wonder, though, if I can integrate this with my NextGen Gallery or WordPress in some way so I don't have to manually add links every time I want to add a thumbnail to the page?
