krembo99, thank you SO much for responding. You're right -- which files to work with was obvious once I downloaded the Lightview files from Nick Stakenburg's site. I've now installed and activated the Lightview-Plus WordPress plugin, with the required Lightview files, following the instructions given by Thorsten Puzich (the plugin author).
I've been working with the gallery images a while, trying to figure out as much as I can on my own. I've gotten the CSS styled now, and the thumbnails are looking as desired on the page. However, I've got a few more snafus to figure out.
My test gallery page is at http://www.lewisvillephotos.com/photo-moment-1
1) When I test the gallery page for HTML validation, I'm getting one error:
Line 109, Column 32: document type does not allow element "div" here; missing one of "object", "applet", "map", "iframe", "button", "ins", "del" start-tag.
<div class='gallery gallery-413'><dl class='gallery-item col-3'><dt class="galle
I initially got this invalid error when I was trying another gallery plugin (which has now been removed), after having installed the Cleaner Gallery plugin for WordPress. Whenever I remove the gallery images from the page, the page will validate. So I *think* this error is related to the Cleaner Gallery plugin; and if so, I'm not sure how to correct it. Any ideas?
2) When I click on a thumbnail, the larger image version only comes up in a new window, instead of being displayed with the Lightview effect. It's just a static image located at the top left corner of the screen. I inserted the code shown below in my header, as mentioned on Nick Stakenburg's site. I also placed both the prototype 188.8.131.52.js file and the folder named scriptaculous-js-1.8.1 in the wp-content/plugins/lightview-plus folder. Any problems with these files and their location, or with the code placed in the header?
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/lightview.css" />
However, maybe a key to the Lightview effect not working is that my images do not have the
rel tag and the
lightview class applied to them, according to Stakenburg's info below. I'm just not sure how to apply that code to the images. If that's needed, how do I go about doing that?
An image gallery can be created using rel='gallery[setname]'
I'm sorry this is so long, but I've tried to figure out as much as I can on my own! I hope someone can help me solve these remaining issues.
Thanks so much.
