Support » Plugin: Royal PrettyPhoto » One of the few Lightbox plugins that avoids link problems

  • demonboy


    As you can see from my forum post and work-around, I was having the same old problem everyone has regarding linking to a Lightbox show from one image or link. See here. I dislike intensely NextGen Gallery so I spent ages finding a solution. Whilst I am sure there are a number of work-arounds out there, the only one that has worked for me so far has been to use this plug-in and the display:none style on images (I’ve included a walk-through on my post). I give it five stars for preventing me from pulling out the rest of my hair.

    I know this is the nature of the prettyPhoto look and not so much the plugin itself, but I would like edge-to-edge images. PrettyPhoto always reduces the images by slapping large invisible margins round all four sides. I’m going to attempt to hack the css to over-ride this but if you could include this as an option in the next version, or msg me to let me know a work-around, I would be very grateful.

    In the meantime, thanks for a plug-in that actually works and keep up the great work.

  • Hey there,

    I am hoping you can help me or point me in the right direction. I tried looking at the support from the developer, but I could not make heads or tails of it.

    I didn’t think I was an idiot, but upon reading everybody else’s comments about how easy Royal PrettyPhoto is to use, I am beginning to rethink my idiocy.

    I cannot begin to use it; it does not appear in my Dashboard. The only reference to it is under “Dashboard / Settings / Royal PrettyPhoto” where I can edit global settings, but that is the ONLY place that I can see any evidence of it. So I have no idea where to begin.

    I am wondering if the warning “NOTE: This plugin requires the WP_footer() hook to be fired from your theme.” might have something to do with it, but I have no idea what the warning means or what I should do to address it.

    I am using the theme Coraline.

    I am relatively new to WordPress — there is a lot of lingo I do not yet know.

    Thanks for you time and any assistance you can offer.
