so the community understands "eaglewheelie"'s post ....
i placed my email contact get further information into some possible galleries that he might be insterested in. having recently done a photo gallery for a client, i just wanted to see if what i used was something that he might be looking for. i posted my email, because at last, the client has not gone "live" but i can at least provide links on a limited basis. having shown him the gallery, he mentioned that this would be the perfect solution.
so, i mentioned i could do it, but not exactly for free. i wish i could, but it did take me some time to modifiy the code to work seemlessly with WP with a clean look. therefore, i indicated to him i could do it today, before lunch and have him using it (in less than two hours from right now!). i do not think this would be unreasonable to promise i could have it done, without having to coach him through the installation and modification process, and meet his need for his website. obviously, he can flounder around and may or may not get it work, but my guarantee to him was to completely do it and even meet his request to modify the code to "feed" his photobucket account into the gallery.
unfortunately, if you are looking for a plugin - it will not meet your needs. you might as well just put an image in your post and link it to your photobucket account. now if you want an actual "gallery" you cannot acheive this with a plugin the last i looked.
