    Hi, I cannot get the lightbox, thickbox, etc functions to work. Should I install a plugin?

    The code for the gallery I am using is - [nggallery id=1]

    Thanks, Paul

    I'm having the same issue, except I'm calling it by album: [album id=2 template=extend]

    I can't get Lightbox or Highslide to work. Any help would be appreciated.

    If I find anything out I'll let you know.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Okay, with more research I found this out and got it to work on my site.

    1. Download and install jQuery Lightbox Plugin.
    2. Now in nextgen-gallery go to gallery => Options => Effects and make sure you have lightbox selected as your effect and the code looks like this: rel="lightbox[%GALLERY_NAME%]".
    3. Save it out and it should work. (at least it did for me)

    This is the link to the thread that I found (Post #7)

    Hi - I can't install JQuery Lightbox Plugin.
    I've been trying to just upload the zipfile through the add plugins area, but it keeps failing.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Duffy

    CANCEL- Duh! I just searched the plugins through WordPress and JQuery installed! Sorry! My lightbox slideshow is working! YIPPEE!!!

    Have you tried installing it through the "Add New" section? That's how I did it. I automtically installs it.

    Never mind, just read your update :)
