To anyone who uses this plugin
I’m making some updates for use on my site so now’s your chance to throw out any suggestions. All I’m looking at so far is allowing for the full size image to be displayed on the current page either above or below the thumbnails.
Anything other ideas or outstanding problems that people are having?

Hmm, if I got to request anything…
the ability to bulk upload images in a zip file, define a category, and be done with it.
but that doesn’t really apply to your very handy plugin though, now does it?
how about a random gallery? something where somone could specify a quantity of images, randomly selected, and then have an option that will either have the images take you to the gallery page that they originated from, or just open the popup window, like normal, with the selected image.
a variation of this would be a recent gallery. same idea, but it would display the most recently uploaded images.
oh, and the option to enable scroll if the image is bigger than the popup window. had an image that was fairly wide, and couldn’t scroll sideways.
I just started using the plugin, and it seems to do everything I want. This was just some ideas that I thought would be cool.

Wilshire, what about that “catch all” option I mentioned some posts ago? I have all my photos in categories and there are a lot of them.
Instead of writing:
Thanks for the suggestions so far. Here’s what I’ve included:
One of my original quirks with it was that I couldn’t find a way to display the alt text bellow the thumbnail instead of the caption.
Since the alt text is usually a simple description like “girl holding flower” and the caption is a much more elaborate description of the image, I think it’s logic to use it like a title.
Another one more, rather simple, that I’ve included by hand but some folks might enjoy it: clicking the image will close the window.
rbl – The display of the alt text below would be an easy enough switch. The window closing I’m not sure about. I’d prefer using a close button. I don’t like when things happen that you don’t expect. A button labeled close I would expect to close a window while having the same happen just from clicking the picture seems like it could be confusing to some. I think that ones best left for people to add as you did it they want. Thanks again for the suggestions.
Rock on Rob, this sounds Great! This will take care of many holes in the image handeling side of txp.
If you need a gunea pig let me know. =)
