WordPress Simple Photo Gallery Troubleshooting Solutions



Q1 ) There is a problem with Template 1 and Lightbox slider option and Template 1?

Solution: If you want to use the Lightbox slider for now change to Template 2 until the issue is resolved.


Q2 ) Is there a way to set a maximum lighbox size?

Solution: Yes – in the watermark settings, set the “Watermarked Max Preview Dimension” value to something large and the lightbox will display bigger.

If you don’t want to have a watermark in your popup there is a simple workaround: set the watermark text as “.” and make the watermark font really small.
