    im loving this plugin so far, so much so i made my first plugin review and im requesting some advise on gallery support.


    is there a way to get the plugin to recognize all the images in the gallery so it can cycle through them?
    right now it will cycle through the selected image plus the other links ones.

    anyhow, this works great as is but i might have to keep looking when i get bored and start tweaking as happens

    Sorry for the really late reply, I didn't have email notification enabled for this forum.

    The Gallery needs some way to know about the URLs to load the images from.
    This WordPress plugin takes them from the links to the images, so at the moment it's only possible to cycle through all of the images if all of the links are present on the site.

    However, the original Gallery code provides an API to initialise the Gallery with a list of URLs, so you might want to have a look and customise the WP plugin code:

    i have done all the site work so far, and im not scared of taking on new projects, but this looks like it would take to long to figure out, i do appreciate the reply though, if there is any chance you will make the plugin compatible with the gallery with a built in function please update me, i guess ill go back to the original gallery because i need the cycle function.

    I've released a new version (1.1.0) which enables support for the default WP Galleries.

    How to enable the lightbox functionality for default WordPress galleries?
    In the Gallery settings, set the "Link To" option to "Media File".

    If the automatic activation feature does not work, make sure the following is correct:
    If you go to
    The "Automatic activation" setting should be enabled by .
    The "Media types" setting should contain "gif,jpg,jpeg,png" by default, which applies the automatic activation to all links to the listed image files.
