Page jumps to the top (in the background) when opening a picture in front (5 posts)

    usually when opening a picture in NGG, it used to open in the foreground (with chosen effect, e.g. faded page in the background). When closing the picture, the page would be shown at the same position as before opening the picture.

    However, when opening a picture, it opens as expected in the foreground, but at the same time, the article in the background jumps to the top of the page. This is annoying, since the user has to scroll down again to the part of the page he/she has been reading before opening the picture.

    I am using NGG 1.5.5 with Avenue Dialogue Theme and WP 3.0 , but the bug has been there before upgrading to WP 3.0.

    Thank you.

    This is driving me crazy as well, it's a pretty huge problem on my site because I have upwards of 40 galleries on some pages.

    Seems to only be happening in Firefox. There has to be a fix for this! Someone please?

    Here's a way to fix it without deleting any code, just changing a few settings. This will also give you a light box with a close button which I think is easier to use.

    1. Download the JW image rotator. Upload the imagerotator folder to your web server.

    2. In the WordPress admin go to Gallery > Options > Slideshow. Configure the path to the imagerotator.swf. For example: http://www.plansforextensions.com/imagerotator/imagerotator.swf

    Click save changes

    3. Go to Gallery > Options > Effects. Change JavaScript Thumbnail effect: to 'Thickbox'. Save changes.

    4. The problem is now fixed and you have a nicer lightbox :)

    5. Some extra text may appear before your thumbnails, something like - [show in slideshow]. To remove this, go to Gallery > Options > Gallery. Remove all text in the first box next to 'Integrate Slideshow'.

    6. Excellent!
