    As per title, how can I hack to achieve that? Apparently colorbox auto off when I select links to attachment page.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    the problem is that in the most themes:

    1) The thumbnail in the post or page links to the attachment page, and
    2) the Tumbnail on the attachment page links to the next attachment page.

    If you want to use Colorbox to open your pictures, you'd have to either not use attachment pages at all, or change the way your attachment page works.

    You could post a link to your page here so I could verify if what I said above is true for your site.

    Cheers,
    Arne

    forgot to add:

    My plugin can only open images in the colorbox automatically, if the thumbnail links to the original image.

    Cheers,
    Arne

    you should write in instruction that link="file" is needed to add in "[gallery ... ... ... ]"
