    Signing off from here. See you on the forum. Tada.

    Soner – thanks for looking at it. The theme was custom-designed by the previous developer (I just inherited the site to work on even though I am also a WP newbie!) I can’t seem to find a way to link to it – is there something else I could link you to or send you? That is, if you have time to look at it!

    This is to Sheila. I am a novice when it comes to WordPress but from what it looks like, it is your theme that is causing it to react in that way. If you look at my page you see how the prev and next have a border around them but with yours they are not. This shows me that your theme is adjusting them. In fact, looking further into the source I see it is the theme changing the attributes and that the code might need to be adjusted. If you are using a theme could you link me to it so I can install it on my host and check this out myself? This will give me a better idea of what is going on.

    Hi Ronak – I’m still having the problem where the gallery shows up, but once a photo is clicked, it opens up a new page with the photo showing up in the corner. I basically want the same thing as you have on the demo – when a photo is clicked, the image should show up as an overlay with a slideshow. I have this plugin and Lightbox 2…how can I make this work? http://kerieboshka.com/?page_id=121

    @Peter, there are quite a few conflicting issues with other plugins that use jQuery. I need to figure it out. I don’t have a solution yet.

    @Soner, not yet. I haven’t been able to find out the root cause of the conflicts with other plugins that use jQuery. I update the plugin directory with changelogs, so you can check what changes were made for the update. You can see that on this page – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/awesome-flickr-gallery-plugin/changelog/

    Were you able to fix or look into the issue of why my banner stops scrolling? Is there something I can add to make it work? I noticed you released an update today (2.5.3) but that didn’t fix the issue.
