I am creating a page template with the widgets hardcoded into the page and I am using the nextgen gallery for my photo gallery. Since each site can create multiple pages (using the template I am building), I need a way for the page to distinguish which gallery they want to use for each page. Normally, the user would have to manually change the shortcode for the widget and set it to whatever gallery they want. Is there a way to somehow trap the value of the gallery id when they select it on the upload photo screen (they select from a drop down to say what gallery to use) and then use that variable and dynamically change the id to the correct one? We are trying to make the site as user friendly as possible because it is going to be used by very non-technical people and we don't want them messing anything up so we are pretty much keeping them out of anything admin like.
Or if there is a different plugin I should use that would be easier, I'm game for that too (I just have to have this type of functionality though).
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
