Image Gallery plugins using javascript not working (2 posts)

    Hi.. Im running WP 2.2.1 on my site. None of the image gallery plugins which use javascript seem to work - I've tried Highslide, Nextgen gallery, thumbnail viewer, inline gallery, galleria, mbox.. so Im pretty sure that there's seomthing seriously wrong with executing javascript. I install them, activate, their quicktags are displayed - but the galleries dont work. I tried with and without the editor enabled.

    Nextgen after activation doesnt even allow me to create new galleries from the Options/Gallery tab.

    The best case scenario was with thumbnail viewer - the image was displayed in the post, but when you clicked it instead of a lightbox-like effect, clicking the thumbnail just opened the original image in a new window.

    The mbox tags <mbox /> are also constantly changed by my wordpress editor - even though I was only typing in code view. It changes <mbox /> to <mbox></mbox> and nothing gets displayed in the post.

    DM albums also just displays blank posts.

    Im guessing its a javascript problem - but Ive never called a javascript function from a post so dont know what to do.

    Other plugins i have installed (just to know if any are interefering) are - WP-ContactForm, WordPressDatabaseBackup, TinyMCEAdvanced, ThumbnailViewer, StaticFrontPage, SidebarTile, SearchEverything, Menubar, Mbox, KimiliFlashEmbed, EmbedIt, InlineJavascriptPlugin, FoldingPagesWidget, EmailObfuscator, DMAlbums, AYBJavascriptinPosts, CategoryVisibility-RHRev.
    Also, jquery is installed in the head of my site (jquery-1.2.6.js)
    Also, I dont know the use of a 'js' folder in wordpress/includes which has other folders like crop, jquery, tinymce, scriptaculous - could any of these be the problem?

    I need a simple inline gallery which shows thumbnails below/above/at the side which, when clicked, open the larder image on the same page preferably, but I'll settle for a lightbox effect.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.. thanks..

    If your still struggling with the existing stability problems, I would point you to alternative plugin that would address your problem:

    Disclosure: I'm one of the people who worked on this plugin.

    Let me know if you need any help getting it up and running.

    Let me know if you are still getting those errors.
