Small lightbox with white edges
By ,

The lightbox by default is really small (nowhere near full screen) and has an ugly white box around it. Not going to work for me.

This plugin does nothing
By , for WP 4.4.2

Obviously, from the Support pages, virtually no issues are resolved. My issues right off the bat:

On the Options page, resetting the default number of columns to "4" doesn't work. The default stays at "3"

When I insert a gallery between two lines of text, the line beneath the gallery is brought up on the right side of the gallery, instead of staying below it. Galleries which should be one below the other appear side-by-side.

My caption text (centered under image) overruns the default text ("Image n of n", which is left justified) so that the beginning of the Caption appears on top of the end of the default text.

When I create a new gallery, the default "Image n of n" caption continues counting from the previous gallery. It should start over with each new gallery.

Terrible plugin

Very unuser friendly!

It's very difficult to figure out how to use this plugin or even change the photos displayed. I created a gallery 2 years ago and now I cannot update the photos by adding new ones and deleting old ones. I don't recommend it.

Something wont work
By , for WP 4.0.1

No recommendation.

Too difficult to install. Not recommended.
By , for WP 3.9.1

I can't even get the first install instruction to work. This guy needs to be more clear and perhaps take an English class.

"1) Edit the lightbox-gallery.js and check the path of line 2 according to your settings."

What does that even mean? This is line two of that file:

if ( typeof hs != "undefined" ) {

Go figure.

Maybe you need to be a geek to get this work, for most people this won't work.

can't figure it out
By ,

I'm a pretty tech savvy person and I can't figure this out. And there's very little documentation on it. i don't know how to apply the code to a gallery/album. I'm using a NextGEN plugin for the gallery (which I'm sooo not thrilled about either) and can't figure out how to add lightbox code to it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
