    Hi. How can i create lightbox galleries from the attached images ? I can see the gallery slider in the shortcodes but can’t figure out how to get the image ids that it requires.

    Are you trying to display a gallery of thumbnails, or a slider?

    1. For a gallery of thumbnails, that all link to lightbox popups for the images, just insert a standard WordPress gallery, and under the gallery settings set the gallery to link to the media files.

    2. If you’re trying to insert a gallery slider from our shortcodes plugin, a little trick to get all the attachment ID’s is to insert a standard WordPress gallery into your content, which will look like this:

    [gallery ids="1,2,3,4"]

    Then, simply change the shortcode text to say “gallery_slider”:

    [gallery_slider ids="1,2,3,4"]

    … Note that these slider images will not be linking to any ligthboxes, as this is a completely separate thing.
