[resolved] Can cgview display whole post, incl video, not just image and d (3 posts)

    Because cgview displays just the image and decription, when we click on the thumb gallery to view my posts I don't see things like related items, comment box etc and more worryingly, videos that are embedded in the posts.

    My post has a video embedded in it which works fine normally but I can't seem to get the cgview gallery to display the whole post in the lightbox, just the image and description, and where the video should be, just the embed shortcode. The featured image is a jpg.

    I have tried changing the link url on the thumbnail to the blog post, and I can't work out how to get this working.

    Any ideas please? as I would really rather use this plugin than a gallery plugin as it's otherwise working beautifully (now I figured out it doesn't like png or large thumbnails) :)

    have worked out that turning the lightbox off on my multimedia page does work, in that it links to the full post with the video etc - but I would really like to be able to use shortcodes/ videos/ and modules such as related posts and comments in the lightbox! I likes the lightbox! :)

    sorted! after three days trial and error found out that cgview does not support embedded video *unless it is embedded using html* ie in an iframe - I used `<iframe type="text/html" width="" height=""src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/video_id" frameborder="0">
    yip yip yip! I really wanted to use cgview for the whole gallery, not just for the images as I like the style. Perfect!
