I remember trying to implement this many years ago with WordPress. It was messy because it involved NextGen and changing some code and avoiding upgrades in order to maintain the changes. Anyway, I’ve tried my best to avoid NextGen Gallery as I never got on with it but it seemed the only solution this time was to use NextGen once more. After installing it, it played havoc with my WP back-end and killed a plugin, so I uninstalled it once more. Almost every solution on the WP forums either relates to older versions of NextGen (all the shortcodes have changed), or are closed topics with unfinished solutions. So, I’m back to square one.
I would like a single image (or text link) that is clickable and, when clicked, launches a responsive Lightbox slideshow/gallery with next/previous buttons to all images in that gallery. I was originally looking for a slider to do this but I’m not sure that’s possible.
I really hope there’s a new and simple solution out there because I know that there are many people looking for this, so I’m hoping I’ve just been out of touch and things have developed.
If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful.
