I use NextGen Gallery for WordPress often, I think it’s a fairly solid solution with a few quirks that I can work around.

Today I’m working on a multilevel gallery for a local architect. I have a number of galleries within each album, and I wanted to show the album name and gallery name for each of them to help the visitor keep track of where they are in the stack.

To do this, go into /wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/view/ and open gallery.php.

Add this line to the very top of the page:

Then, scroll down to about line 72 and just before the thumbnails section comment, add this:

This will give you a nice-looking, dynamic headline like:

Album Name: Gallery Name
