I just installed WordPress 3.3.1, Gallery2 2.3.1, and WPG2 3.0.7 - and now I don't know what to do! I've found that the documentation available is pretty thin. Nothing is maintained on the Gallery2 site anymore since Gallery3 has been released.
Can anyone help me with some very basic stuff like:
How do I add a gallery to a post, and have it display as a lightbox? Currently, the only thing I can achieve is to add a gallery in a new post, and - no matter what options I check within the Gallery pop-up - clicking on the image in the published post always brings me to the gallery in Gallery2. How do I more seamlessly integrate the images with WordPress? Do I need additional WordPress plugins/modules to display the images?
My very end goal is to have some public galleries set up on my site for all the world to see, then create user/group-specific galleries that are only available to r4egistered users. Ironically, integrating my WordPress and Gallery2 users was a snap.
Thanks in advance for any help - forum replies, external links. Anything is better than what I've come up with so far!
