Yet another gallery plugin. I was looking for a simple gallery where you can
select a thumbnail, see the complete picture in a acceptable size but also have
the oppertunity to see the details of the image. I searched the web for a way
to do this and found the AnythingZoomer, a jQuery Plugin by Chris Coyier. I
originally used this jquery plugin for this WordPress plugin.
It works well for e-commerce sites like webshops or as a photo gallery.
It is easy to adapt if you would want to, but the default behaviour should be
very much usable by anybody.
There is a settingspage to customize the images used and wheter or not to over-
write the default gallery shortcode.
If you want to use this gallery, simply use the [superzoomgallery] shortcode in
your post or page, or enable the overwriting of the gallery shortcode and use
the default wordpress [gallery] shortcode in your post or page.
Since this is still an early version, I recommend to test it out first before taking
it to a production site.
If you have any questions or problems, I would be happy to hear from you and help
you if I can!
Unzip and activate. There is a settingspage which allows you to select which
image sizes you would like to use and wheter or not to use this gallery as the

you can add image sizes via your theme. This way you can customize the image sizes.
- Can I change the look of the gallery?
Basically, most of style information is in szg-style.css. If you want to
change the HTML, then look in the superzoomgalley.php for the function
- I have some problems with my theme. It works great with the default theme.
Hmm, possible a CSS problem. Do not hesitate to contact me on the forum!
