The Lightbox Gallery plugin changes the view of galleries to the lightbox.
Just works with WP galleries. Doesn't do anything with only one picture.
it works nice, thanks a lot
I'm a pretty tech savvy person and I can't figure this out. And there's very little documentation on it. i don't know how to apply the code to a gallery/album. I'm using a NextGEN plugin for the gallery (which I'm sooo not thrilled about either) and can't figure out how to add lightbox code to it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I tried a few hours to make it work, but I gave up.
Hmmm. Well it works and it's simple. Its what I'm looking for... for the most part. The settings area needs a complete overhaul though; a lot of cleaning up is needed here. I'd like my image captions to display correctly though, and they don't. The author states:
Lightbox Gallery will load 'lightbox-gallery.css' and 'lightbox-gallery.js' from your theme's directory if they exist. If they don't exist, they will just load the default 'lightbox-gallery.css' and 'lightbox-gallery.js' that come with Lightbox Gallery.
But this is either unclear or not so. I uploaded the lightbox-gallery.css into my child theme folder and it doesn't over ride the original css at all. I will have to tear this apart and do some tinkering to figure out what exactly I need to do. Unclear instructions that could have been better thought-out. Would have given it 5 stars if not for this and the settings page messiness.
The plugin does what it claims. In 2 clicks you have a nice looking lightbox effect in your galleries.
We simply installed>activated and works like a charm right out of the box. Thank you!
very difficult to fix
Just what I was looking for and it works great with WP 3.5.2
