    I am having issues getting lightboxes to load for my galleries.

    I have tried Lightbox and WP Lighbox 2 and all that happens is that when an image is clicked you are taken to a page, check this post and you will see: http://ghoststorm.co.uk/the-creators-of-halo-and-the-publisher-of-call-of-duty-unveil-destiny/#axzz2LA0fQVWR

    How can I have images load in a pupup/lightbox instead of what it is doing?

    Have you tried switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    Yeah I tried that before coming here, sorry I should've said.

    Same thing was happening.

    You may be hitting a known bug in WordPress 3.5.1 in which all gallery images are being linked to their attachment page rather than the raw image file. This bug should be fixed in the next WordPress update but, for now, you have two options that might work:

    1. If you have been using the Text editor to edit your Posts & Pages then locate the [gallery] shortcode and amend it to [gallery link="file"]

    2. Try editing the relevant Posts/Pages and creating the galleries again but, this time, toggle the "Link To" dropdown from Media File to Attachment page" and back again.
