bgallagh3r / album-lightbox.php
Created Mar 2, 2014
All NextGen Galleries in Lightbox - Loads all galleries on a single page via lightbox instead of going to the actual gallery page. Just add the files appropriately then use this shortcode `[album id=0 template=lightbox]` id of 0 will force NGG to load all galleries. What I did instead however was set the default compact album to use the lightbox…
View album-lightbox.php
// /wp-content/themes/YOURTHEME/nggallery/album-lightbox.php
// To set this theme, go into Gallery > Gallery Settings and change the template to album-lightbox.
Template Page for the album overview
Follow variables are useable :
$album : Contain information about the album

public function run()
