    I have to admit that your plugins looks very nice…but most of them have same problem…image management does not work properly. If you go to phpmyadmin and manually insert images than it works, but in wordpress dashboard, u can not see any images….can u fix that.

    Thank, bye

    Hi – there does seem to be a problem when you scroll the image it bricks up in parts as it slides. I have obviously optimised the images.

    Great plugin, i really love it, and I’m going to use it in a new personal project.
    One question: Is it posible to have more than 10 groups? Maybe editing the php file?

    First of all, congratulations for the plugin. It really looks good. Unfortunately, I think I have the same problem as Debbie: I can’t upload my own images to be displayed on the gallery. You said that Group1 was the name of the image group, and that Option was available in the admin. But I’m new with wordpress and I don’t really know what “Option” and “admin” refer to. Could you please lend me a hand here?
    Thank you very much!

    Hello again. I finally managed to solve the problem. In case anyone else gets stuck where I did, here’s the solution: just open the “Settings” menu on your WP dashboard and select “Iframe Images Gallery”. You only have to introduce the URL of the images that you want to display, insert the order number and hit the “Insert Message” buttom. It worked for me!

    I’m using the beta 3.4? and that may be the issue but the manual scroll bar doesn’t show up. In my about foliage page I have four images and I would like these to much larger or if I click on one then it opens up in the slimbox that I’m using on the website. Right now 800px wide is all I can do and if someone click on a picture in order to view a larger image they just get a new page. (I tried all three settings) I don’t want them (the images) to open in a new page (too easy to walk off with) but I would like bigger versions to be seen. Maybe a 800 wide by 520 high window with large version of the images to slide back and forth… I apologize if I’m doing something wrong.

    Hey. Great plugin. I love it. Slowly starting to switch over my site to use the plugin for every gallery. Is there anyway to lock the horizontal scrolling bar at the bottom of your browser window? And extend the length of the bar from end to end of your window? I’m also seeing a gray border or background on my images. It only shows up when I use the plug in gallery, not any other galleries. Any ideas? I’m using a Photocrati theme.
    Thank you!

    Hi, thanks a lot for this nice plugin !

    It’s seems to work well for me, anyway, I’d like to know how to get the iframe starting from left side of the window even when it’s enlarged – I mean if I want the iframe always in full window width. Probably a CSS but could you tell me where to find the right file and may be the specific css lign to edit…

    Thanks a lot,

    Best Regards

    Can you help please ? I’ve activated the iframe images plugin on WordPress 3.5.1. However, I find that when I paste in the short code a small version of the images for the given group appear on the page but not the large images and no scroll bar appears. If, however I paste into the php call in the “single.php” file then the full size images appear, however that only allows one group to be specified. I need to have a different gallery on different posts. Therefore need to be able to use different group calls. What am I doing wrong ?

    Thanks Gopi for great plugins! If the images could use the WordPress image gallery uploader on a page it would be so much better. Is it possible to change this plugin to do that? So when the gallery inserts id’s into the [gallery] shortcode. Could this plugin not overwrite the same shortcode and recognize the image id’s??

    Many thanks.

    I just found your plugin and love it! Did just what I wanted in firefox, but when I saw it in chrome it didn’t contain the images in a div, but shrunk them so they didn’t need the scroll function. What could I do to fix that ?
