Lightbox 2 effect not working with nextgen gallery (6 posts)

    Hi, I have installed the lightbox 2 plugin and the nextgen gallery plugin.

    i have switched the effect tolightbox in the options tab of nextgen gallery.

    when i click on an image in my post that is generated from the nextgen gallery, i get a white page with the image and no lightbox effect.

    i remember from playing with lightbox one day a while ago that if this happens, it means that the .js files are not being found. but the lightbox plugin should include those .js file links in my page template head automatically right ?

    anyway, anyone have this problem or a solution ?

    thank you in advance and thank you to the coders of the lightbox and nextgen plugin, they rule and you guys are awesome.

    thanks from australia

    A month later I have the same problem. I'll look into the .js files, but in the meantime if anyone already knows the solution please do tell :)

    First thing I ran into was lightbox not being installed as a plugin. I would slap myself if it were not for 'lightbox' being in the dropdown list in nextgen (even tho there is a disclaimer about anything other than thickbox).

    Installed the lightbox 2 plugin, cleared cache, still no joy.

    You have to use the "balupton edition" of lightbox for it to work with nextgen gallery. just install and choose lightbox as the effect to use and it will work correctly.

    Just to give you guys an update. I know it's an old post, but I was having the same problem. The solution provided by Raisthlin worked perfectly for me.
