Over at build internet there are several posts about how to edit shutter.js and some html to keep the bottom tray visible without having to click on a link. How would one do that with WordPress, since this is not an option in settings.
What I REALLY want is a vertically oriented thumbnail navigation with thumbnails that are as clear as the prev/next thumbs. No matter what size I have WordPress make my thumbnails in the image gallery (I need captions, so using this option) they aren't very sharp. But even more important is that I would like one column of thumbnails, scrollable, down the right side.
