needs better instructions & cleaner settings page.
By , for WP 3.5.2

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.
