    I absolutely love the EasyRotator - you guys are awesome.

    I'm trying to integrate the EasyRotator with another plugin, Category Grid View Gallery:
    http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/category-grid-view-gallery

    The EasyRotator works great when I view it on my website, but when I try to see the same post within the lightbox used by Category Grid View, the images don't always load. Sometimes it works, but mostly it shows a blank image.

    My site is http://rebeccabgiddings.com/wordpress.

    Here's an example of a blog post with EasyRotator working:
    http://rebeccabgiddings.com/wordpress/2014/02/cso-2014-conference

    Then you can pull up the same post on my design portfolio page, here:
    http://rebeccabgiddings.com/wordpress/design

    Any ideas?

    Hi Rebecca,

    Thanks for using EasyRotator for WordPress! Unfortunately, this lightbox plugin uses ajax to load the rotator code, which is not officially supported because it often prevents the correct initialization of the rotator code. The solution is to not embed the rotator directly in the lightboxed posts, but instead use special <iframe> code. To do this, note the special erc_xx_xxxxx shortcode in your post. Replace it with this iframe code:

    <iframe src="/wp-content/plugins/easyrotator-for-wordpress/engine/main.php?action=renderFrame&path=erc_xx_xxxxxxx" width="400" height="300" scrolling="no" frameborder="0"></iframe>

    Update the shortcode reference along with the width and height.

    Sincerely,
    Drew O'Neill
