Combining Lightbox with Wordpress gallery
October 18, 2011 6:03 PM Subscribe
I've been asked by a family member to set up a small business site to be used for displaying images of products for sale. As I don't really want to get too involved, I need a CMS that's easy to use and maintain and figured WordPress to be a good fit. However, I'm having trouble finding just the right image gallery behaviour.

The website only has three pages: home, product X and product Y. Pages for product X and product Y have the same structure: a grid of images with brief descriptions. Clicking on an image should open a lightbox with more shots of the same product (but no extra captions).
It's fairly simple, basically two different galleries, but the additional feature of gallery images that link to a lightbox complicate it somewhat. I was hoping to find a WordPress plugin that displays this sort of behaviour, but I'm coming up short. I could code up something myself, but I'd like to keep my time investment in this project to a minimum.
I should not that although my relative is intelligent enough, it's important that maintenance of said system be easy, or fairly wordpress-ish.
Any ideas? Did I not search well enough? Is there a plugin that might only need a few adjustments? Another CMS that could do the job?
