Viewing images from galleries - Advancing through all the photos.

Ok maybe I'm being greedy with two questions in 1 night, please forgive!

Just a useability query.  I have noticed that if one has several pages of images in a gallery, that when one is viweing the images you can only scroll through the images that are on the page that is selected.  If the gallery has several pages, one needs to close the viewed image, advance to the next page, open up an image and then one can continue scrolling through all the images on the 2nd page.  This need to be repeated for all pages.

Is there a way to set the system so if an image is selected to view, by pressing the right arrow butto one can scroll through every single image without having to stop, select a new page and then continuing?  I'm having people not seeing all the images as they scroll through them as they don't realise or notice that there are multiple pages.

Re: Viewing images from galleries - Advancing through all the photos.

this has been the case with lightbox type galleries/albums (Highslide, Photoswipe) for years and has been brought up in the forum many times. I'm pretty sure Matt's explained it before, but the bottom line is that if you're using the Photoswipe presentation, this is how it is. You have a couple of options:

Don't use pagination.
Use the HTML Single Image presentation.

You could also try one of the slideshow options in the Theater module.

Lightbox scripts work with images on the current page. That's really all there is to it.
