Clicking the thumbnail in a gallery thread opens a lightbox with the thumbnail.  Better would be that it links directly to the gallery page (like the text link just below).

Example thread:

It's frustrating to click the thumbnail, click the close button, click the link each time I forget...

Back to the original topic:

Removing the lightbox from the equation equals:

Click on thumbnail does nothing (See BBCode)
Click on link below thumb >> takes you to the Gallery Pro Medium thumb page
Click on the Medium thumb opens the Full image
(Note that does not use a Medium thumbnail.)

BBCode needed to click image and open link:


I hope the Gallery Pro auto created Topic will be able to generate the nested image/url.

the good old topic.

definitely on the list.
we had the poll to disable automatically generated which decided for disabling that function which would get us rid of that issue.
also, maybe 3dickulus has an idea regarding the whole image issue.

but first let's see, gallery v8 was just released today and we'll install that soon.

The gallery page displays the bbcode for thumbnail with link
Automagic would be nice. I thought i turned off the light box thing?

I decided to revisit this after seeing 3D's automagic ability to have the gallery create the bbcode for thumbnail with link.

If the forum is going to do away with auto generated threads from Category Gallery submissions then my request is a moot point.

Lightbox still responds to attachments.
Does Fancybox mod need to be uninstalled to turn it off?

Does SMF Gallery Pro V8 have release notes for changes?
