Help on creating albums with galleries inside (3 posts)

    Hi :)
    I was wondering if there is anyone who can help med create a functioning gallery in wordpress? I have tried different plugins, but I´m relatively new at this, so either it`s not working/I don´t know what to do, or it´s not quite what I wanted :(
    What I want is:
    Click on the gallery button in the top menu, and the page displays album-thumbs of different galleries. Click on a thumb and get a page with thumbs of all the pictures in the gallery. Click on a picture and get the lightbox feature with the dark fading of the background and the image pop-up... Click next to see the other pictures in the gallery.
    I thought this was quite common, but I´m not especially good in php, so I cant make this work. Anyone who can help me? Help will be greatly appreciated :)

    I use WPG2 and Gallery2 for something like this. You have to do a bit of work to get a Lightbox working with it though.

    A lighter alternative would be to use something like Lightbox Gallery which adds a Lightbox to WordPress' built-in gallery and build the gallery structure yourself with normal pages.

    There's also this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/

    Thank you - I have just started using Nextgen as you suggested, seems like this is a solution :)
