I am using Legacy for one client and Optimal for another, both of them have portfolio pages set up, so I’m adding this to “general” if that’s okay. I actually really love the pretty photo effect on the main portfolio pages and would like to use it on with the WordPress galleries in the posts the portfolio items are associated with (the posts have more than one image). I know that pretty photo is already installed, but I’m having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to make it work for the rest of the site. I’ve found the tutorials on how to remove the effect from the portfolio page. I’ve googled how to get it to work with WordPress galleries and come up with a lot of bits of code (hooks/filters) but because it’s already installed and in use I’m not sure that’s the right approach, either. This is one of those things I have a sinking feeling I’m missing something simple, yet critical, but I have no idea what it is. Can you point me in the right direction?

The prettyphoto plugin that is included with this theme ONLY works for the portfolio page….it’s not designed for anything else. As mentioned here – http://appfinite.com/topic/prettyphoto-in-posts/ you would have to find a plugin that will work for Galleries as this is a WordPress function and not from the theme.
Just to be clear, the prettyphoto included in this theme only works for the “Posts” that are on the Portfolio Template/Page (not gallery images or anything outside of that)…..this is completely separate from everything else.

Alrighty, first of all, thanks for your patience. I completely forgot I had already asked this question. It’s an ADD thing I hate and it leaves me feeling like a ding-dong sometimes.
Second, thanks… this explains a lot. Like why I went and found a plugin – prettyPhoto Media – I thought would do the trick but when I tried to upload it it did the “you already have this” message. I must have decided to think about it some more and work on something different and by the time I came back to it I had forgotten I’d already asked. On a plugin like this one, how do I get around it thinking I already have this plugin? Would I change the name or pull files out that would be duplicated? Maybe just take a vacation? (lol)
Edit: That plugin just didn’t work. It was a different one that wouldn’t install. I’ll keep looking. Thanks.June 10, 2013 at 10:21 pm #5173
Ok, let me know if you find one.
…and if I come across one in the near future I’ll definitely let you know.

Thanks – you’re too kind. I wound up using the Photoswipe plugin for NextGen. It solves several issues my client has: showing large photos, it can’t be copied/right clicked on, and it is one less thing for client to have to figure out how to use. And it enables photo swiping (as the name would indicate).
