    is this a simple problem?

    The website in question is mboutdoor.com

    I was asked to provide a simple site so that's what I did. I used WordPress and I'm running the nextgen photo gallery. What I would like to happen is when you click gallery, instead of the gallery page with thumbnails loading I would prefer that the pictures just load with the shaded background effect.

    Is this possible? It's been many years since I have put a site together, so I have little experience with it which is why I chose WordPress. I feel like i'm overlooking something simple.

    You should try jQuery Lightbox instead of FancyBox

    FancyBox is a tool for displaying images, html content and multi-media in a Mac-style "lightbox" that floats overtop of web page.
    It was built using the jQuery library. Licensed under both MIT and GPL licenses

    Features:
    • Can display images, HTML elements, SWF movies, Iframes and also Ajax requests
    • Customizable through settings and CSS
    • Groups related items and adds navigation.
    • If the mouse wheel plugin is included in the page then FancyBox will respond to mouse wheel events as well
    • Support fancy transitions by using easing plugin
    • Adds a nice drop shadow under the zoomed item

    will that make it possible to do what i'm trying to do? i have the nextgen optimizer which offers the lightbox option already. i think all i have to do is change the code for the link for gallery so that instead of pointing it to that page it will point to maybe the first picture... i'm just not sure on that.
