[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Description overlaps - unreadable (7 posts)

    My first time working with NextGEN Gallery and I have run into an obstacle. I have activated
    NextGEN Gallery
    NextGEN Gallery ColorBoxer
    Lightbox Plus

    When the lightbox opens to display the full sized picture, the description at the botton overlaps the existing text from the image navigator and can't be read. I don't want to reduce the description content as it's important to the project. Is there a way to fix this? Here is the site:
    http://artistsfineartgallery.com/expressionism/

    Also, I would like to display, if possible, the artists name below the thumbnail and have it be a hotlink to the artist's page. Can someone tell me if this can be done and if so, how?
    Thanks very much for your assistance.

    I'll recommend jQuery Lightbox (balupton edition).

    Currently what I use. Many of my description are very lengthy. No problem with this version, the description can span multiple line without any issues.

    I couldn't find the link to download from WordPress directly.

    I just uploaded the plugin activated, there are settings you can configure. I made sure in Gallery->Options->Effects had the following setting :

    JavaScript Thumbnail effect: Lightbox

    Link Code line: rel="lightbox[%GALLERY_NAME%]"

    The site has info I never saw before because I downloaded directly from WordPress. You can check it out here :

    Good luck.

    That worked nicely. Thank you. Now, can you tell me if there is a way to make the text in the lightbox darker and also is there a way to add a line of info below each thumbnail that links to the particular artist?

    Well, I got the font color fixed.. so now all I need to figure out is whether I can add text below each thumbnail that is a link to a specific page. Any thoughts on that?

    I don't think that's possible.

    I can't find it now, but there was a nggallery tinymce plugin. Don't remember the name.

    Ultimately I didn't like it, I think it could let you add links. I could be wrong. I know it let you do more.

    Good luck.

    OK this is what I was talking about :

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-tinymce-description/

    Check their screenshot :

    You can links, but I remember I didn't like the plugin.

    Good luck.

    OK just for laughs I re-installed.

    Yes you can a link to the description. The problem is the picture launches in a separate tab.

    Clicking descriptions with the lightbox I recommended allows visitors to down the image.

    I may have tried this before with a different nggallery effect.

    So you maybe able to do it with a different effect.

    Good luck.
