This theme is rather promising and I really love a lot of the features, but as always, feel the need to customize a bit.
I prefer the standard WP gallery layout with js-shadowbox to create the lightboxes to what the theme provides. I've disabled the suggested/required plugin, but shadowbox still doesn't work (guess there is a conflict) and I'm still getting the little gallery insert above the WP thumbnail grid. How do I get rid of the gallery insert (which I don't care for because the photos are so small on a desktop)?
Also, any idea what might be causing the conflict with shadobox? You can see both of the problematic elements here:
JetPack's Carousel plugin is a fall back I can live with (even if I hate how difficult it is to close the carousel overlay out), but single image links are still screwy because the shadowbox is showing up in a weird place - at the top of the page instead of relative to the current viewport:
Not being able to take that little gallery off is a deal breaker for me on the theme, so I'd like to figure that out before digging further into customization. Any help would be very much appreciated.
