How to Install prettyPhoto JavaScript Lightbox on a WordPress Theme

headmaster @ 1:14 am

WordPress DevelopmentThis tutorial emerged organically after writing the tutorial for Installing prettyPhoto JavaScript Lightbox.

My original intention was to document the steps I had taken in using the script in a regular good ‘ol fashioned site, (meaning non CMS or Blog script). In the process of writing said tutorial I had to show a working sample on this blog. Since this is a WordPress, Pretty Photo had to be made to work with the existing theme. So I did the install and re-wrote the tutorial to address what I did to make it work on this WP blog.

That way the images stack up fitting more than one image link per row.

Take a look at the graphic below to see what I mean.
