As it turns out, there was one option, jQuery Lightbox Balupton Edition which worked ok and obviously did use jQuery, but it had a few really annoying aspects to it, like the big advertisement in the upper right corner when you used the effect, plus the name was ridiculously pretentious. For some reason several of the plugins I tested also had issues where the dropdown menu wouldn’t properly situate itself into the background either (though I could resolve this by changing my menu’s z-index).
Let me know what you think.
The plugin works really well. I didn’t realise there was a jQuery equivalent of that.
I am working on migrating http://evomedicine.org/index.html (for a non-profit scientific group) to a new WordPress site that I have set up and am hosting temporarily on the subdomain http://evomed.pmcsa.org.nz/
I have uploaded the NextGEN Gallery (Version 1.4.3) and WP-Slimbox2 plugins to achieve the lightbox effect on the existing site, and I like the results, but the site owners would prefer the “pop-up” to be reformatted so that the “Description / Caption” is displayed to the left of the image (as in the existing site) rather than below it.
I would appreciate guidance on how I might be able to achieve this, or alternatively a quote for doing the reformat for me.
Hi – I appreciate the help! This is my first WordPress site but it’s taking me a while to really figure it all out – I can’t keep all these options, plugins, and themes straight! But you can totally see the power. I’m guessing that installation and setup won’t take forever next time. Anyhow… nice blog… I’m subscribed to your RSS feed now so thanks again!
Thanks For Sharing
Great plugin, thanks a lot!
Nice plugin, Necessarily I use in practice!
Hey nice plugin, Thanks for the tip! The site I have here is my first one based off of WordPress. Very good blog I am subscribing to your rss feed.
