Lightbox effect just doesn't work... (3 posts)

    Hi all. I've been using NexGen gallery for years. I've been installing the Slimbox plugin... going to Gallery --> Options --> Effects and selecting "Lightbox"... and making sure the link to imagerotator.swf under Gallery --> Options -->Slideshow is set up and correct. Then, I get the nice animated, overlay, effect on my galleries with a code like this:

    [nggallery id=1 rel="lightbox"]

    But on my latest attempt on my own site (ironically the first time I've tried it there - previously I've only installed NGG on other sites)... it just. doesn't. work. The images open within a reloaded version of the same page. It's driving me insane.

    Here is an example page: http://adamabrams.com/nextgen-gallery-test

    Can anyone suggest anything I'm doing wrong?

    Hi Commocanuck - I just found this....


    Kinda sad news - they haven't updated the plugin in over 2 years.

    Thanks Duffy, but alas it has the same effect as all other "lightbox enabler" plugins I've tried - none. Gonna try disabling all other plugins to see if that helps...
