For this plugin to work, you must have the Cleaner Gallery plugin installed.
Q: Why doesn’t it work for me?
You have changed the plugin folder’s name to something other than “lightbox-2”.
The problem is with your WordPress theme, mangling image display properties. Use another theme, that doesn’t interfere with posted images.
You have other plugins that conflict with Lightbox 2. Disable your other plugins and see if that helps. If it does, re-enable each plugin, one at a time to see which one is causing the conflict.
Q: It doesn’t work properly in Browser X (Explorer 6, 7, etc)?
A: Yes it does. The problem is with your WordPress theme, mangling image display properties. Use another theme, or hack your theme’s Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). http://www.w3schools.com/css/
Q: I made my own WordPress theme, or heavily hacked another one, and lightbox doesn’t work at all, ever.
A: You forgot to include wp_header() in your header.php of your WordPress theme. Be sure to look at the default theme, or other quality themes (eg: standards-compliant XHTML and CSS) to see how they work while hacking your own 😉
