[resolved] Lightbox discontinued. What's the alternative? (2 posts)

    So, there are a few bugs with the Lightbox JS that comes with this plugin. The biggest problem I have is sometimes the box isn't centered with respect to the screen. My JS skills only go so far, so I can't fix it.

    The thing is, the Lightbox script author discontinued it last year http://stimuli.ca/2011/04/13/wordpress-plugins-discontinued-lightbox-2-slickr/. How do we go about updating the plugin so that it uses a different lightbox script?

    I've found an alternative to Lightbox-2, which is WP jQuery Lightbox http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-jquery-lightbox/. This plugin is excellent. I'd like to incorporate it with NGG. Anyone knows how to?

    Just kidding. When I removed the original Lightbox plugin and added the WP jQuery Lightbox, it seems to work perfectly with the newer plugin.
