Jappler Recommends: Lightview Plus WordPress Plugin

Javascript WordPress

I recently switched from using a gallery WordPress plugin called fGallery to something that is more elegant and updated: NextGen Gallery During this transition, I found a really cool lightbox-ish plugin called Lightview Plus which is more polished than your typical lightbox plugin.

    I can’t get this plugin to work. I couldn’t get Lightbox 2 to work either, which is why I gave this one a try. I can only get Thickbox to work, but I don’t like the presentation as much.
