Hi there, can someone tell me what's the function difference between gallery and lightbox?
I tried lightbox it works, however, the photo gallery doesn't work for me as pictures do not showing on the webpage.
what's wrong? Thanks.

Just 2 different ways of displaying images. The light box is for the occasional 1 or 2 images. And the gallery is for more images. The gallery has the facility of being able to reduce & give better quality thumbnails if the "create thumbnail" box is checked when creating the gallery.
Why yours is not working? would be best to post the page url so we can see. Are you using the same images as you did in the light box test??? This will let you know that the images are ok & working in your browser.

Hi, is there any chance you are using BV10 & maybe havnt upgraded to BV10.00d. As the version 10.00 had a couple of glitches that have been sorted out now.

Hi Chris, I just joined last week. My version is BV10.00 not BV10.00d
I would like to upgrade it, where is the link? Thanks.

Hi, just download it at this link bellow close down all programs & re-install. http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/news-updates/35426-bluevoda-10-0-more-than-50-new-features.html

When you open BV again, worth having a check that it has installed to 100.00d by clicking on Help>About BlueVoda & seeing the version.

Thanks Chris, I have download and installed BV10.00D. However, the photo gallery still doesn't work.
On the same page, with same picture Lightbox works with no problems. I may have to use Lightbox for the time being. Thanks for your help.
