Appreciate your work.
Slight problem is that the option to link a picture to a website isn't working for me and for me in IE but noti n FF the width of the navigation bar ( ie where the cross to close ) is causing a horizontal scrolll bar regardless of the size of the images.

Hi Patr100 are you using WB5 or 6 ?? did you read the pdf regarding this?
If you are using WB5 this explains the scroll and why you cant see close buton this is because you need the new doctype used in WB 6 to sort this.
This is also mentioned in first posting and in pdf... for WB6 you need to use XHTML 1.0 Transitional for gallery to work proper and for WB you need to add the doctype below manually:<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"> to do this you need to save your project and then open the html with notepad and remove the doctype generated by WB 5 and add the above doctype. there is no other way round this in WB5. The original script was never intended to link to a url I have tried what your saying and it is not working with me...did you manually add code to do this? as I have just tried and this is not possible..

Hi Sorry I did not read your post properly - am in WB 6 changed the Doctype now the scrolling is gone - thanks but link to url is still not working. I only used the properties as presented - no extras
Is it meant to link images to urls or are you now saying that option shouldn't be there?

Hi Patr100 the url feature you see was never intened to be used.. as the original script does not do this it wont work in the extension. I know that it is displayed in images settings but this is what is used by default with the extension builder when you make a gallery extension. This feature can only be used if the output code looks like this
<a href="http:\\www.yoursite.com"><img src="and social communities.jpg" width="500px" height="250" alt="Enter your description" border="0"></a>
As the xsl file I used does not output this it you get the code below as it needs to make it look like two images have been used instead of only one ie you get a thumb and you get a large image hence the code looking like this
<a href="images/photo01.jpg" rel="gb_imageset[nice_pics]" title="photo01.jpg"><img src="images/photo01.jpg" width="100" height="63" border="0" alt="" /></a>
I hope this helps you understand why you cant use the url as you would like.

Thanks, I just assumed it was part of the extension. But I now see as you say it's a limitation of the extenstion builder that doesn't allow you to remove the redundant option.
Still really nice option - also degrades well when you turn off scripts to a basic HTML gallery

BF one question. Can I specify small images for thumbnails?
Posted: Wed May 13, 2009 4:01 pm
Hi sneil sorry no what the extension does is to take a image say its size is 200x300 and you set thumbnail size to say 50x75 this is what gets displayed on page and when opened the full size of image is then displayed ie 200x300 the original size. I know the original script allows this and I had built it this way first time round and then saw how Eddy had implimented the use of tables in his slimbox and thought it might be better going this way as it allowed users to add blocks of images at once instead of adding one for thumb one for display then getting asked was there not a easier way to add images again sorry ther no way round this but if possible it will get added.... glad you like it anyway.

Sorry we cannot build the same layout as lightbox with the extensionbuilder.
We can build the extension with tables but we cannot insert a new row after five or 10 images.
