    Hi!

    Great plugin! I was wondering if there was a way to make this work with lightbox plus? I would love to be able to view those facebook images in a "gallery".

    Thanks!

    Yes totally,

    I didn't want to include the scripts incase someone was using something else. I think I might add these automatically if the user wants it (the next version's going to have a lot more settings).

    But as of right now just add the item to your page's javascript:

    For example:
    $('a.fbg_image_link').lightBox();

    For this one:
    http://leandrovieira.com/projects/jquery/lightbox/
    And only if you're using jQuery.

    Sorry where exactly do I put that line of code? And How to ensure that I've done it properly?

    Have you added the Lightbox Plugin? If you have downloaded lightbox and set it up, then you can add that to the javascript anywhere in the files.

    I added the code as you suggested to the index.php, didn't work, also tried it on the page.php and header.php. Did I misuderstand you?

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {
         $('a.fbg_image_link').lightBox();
    });
    </script>

    I have wp-jquery-lightbox plugin and yours installed.

    Thanks!

    Hey, I really like this plugin so far. Is there an easy way have the images show up in a lightbox? Your link above http://leandrovieira.com/projects/jquery/lightbox/ doesn't appear to be doing this. I mean it's showing lightbox style thumbnails on the page, but when you click on an image it shows up in internet explorer instead of a lightbox popup.

    The page I'm trying to implement this on is http://musiclivein.com/acoustic/greensboro-nc-shane-cooley-rosa-wallace/

    Excellent plugin, does exactly what I wanted. The issue I have is getting it to work with Lightbox. I haven't been successful in using that code in the website. Can you shed a light on which page it should go? I have Lightbox installed and activated.

    This is the page I'm trying to get Lightbox to work with: http://www.cakeycupcakes.co.uk/?page_id=169

    Any help would be great, I'm probably 90% of the way there - just a little pointer and it'll be five stars from me!

    Thanks

    Don't hold you breath, looks like the author has abandoned support for his plugin. I ended up using another plugin and it worked perfectly. Go get it! The name is "Facebook Photo Fetcher". Cheers!

    Got it sorted by replacing the following text in the fb-vinyl.php file using the wp editor:

    rel="gallery-' . $id . '"

    with

    rel="lightbox"

    It also works with Rokbox

    Yeah, that looks like it would work well. The only thing with that is that it's going to link all of them into one section.

    @trakero: There's actually no notification system for comments or questions of support. I wish there was since the WP support forum isn't the most exciting place to be.

    I'm running the Catalyst Theme...

    Installed your plugin, like the functionality...just can't get a lightbox to work. Images display on another tab in my browsers.

    I don't currently have any other lightbox plugins installed.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    BTW, I also tried editing the fb-vinyl.php code as suggested above. No change.

    Hey eddiekalaher,

    You'll have to add a lightbox app to your theme and set it up.

    There are so many, and everyone uses a different one, so I'm leaving that up to the theme developers to add those features.
