[resolved] Thumbnail to large image (6 posts)

    Hello. I am trying to link from a thumbnail of a JPG to the large image (with the darkened background). Right now it first goes to a nested page with a larger image and once that is clicked on, the image opens. Is there a way to skip this step? Also, is there a way to display a non-square thumbnail?

    From the documentation:

    How do I create a thumbnail gallery?
    Upload images to a post (see previous question) and use WordPress' built-in gallery shortcode: [gallery link="file"]

    Note the link="file" - this is crucial! By default the gallery will link your humbnails to a page displaying your image. With link="file" the thumbnails links directly to the image files - allowing Lightbox to function.

    WP jQuery Lightbox has nothing to do with the shape of your thumbnails. Check your theme.

    I read that, but I'm still confused.

    If an image that has been uploaded to a page (I'm not using posts) is titled, say, "roadtrip" , then the code I use should look like this?

    [gallery link="roadtrip"]

    This is what I did for my uploaded picture, and it first took me to the nested page, before being able to click and open the lightbox-style, darkened background image.

    OK, I think I figured it out.

    Another question: is there a way to create folders, each containing a series of thumbnails?

    Never mind. Figured it out.

    I haven't figured it out - I can't get my images to show up as thumbnails - what am I doing wrong?
