Ok done!- patch #2686 created! Hooray-my first ever piece of open source assistance!
I'd now like to immediately return to my usual status of asking for assistance from others!
Has anyone got any idea how we can go about sorting out the outstanding pagination/image selection bug in the gallery for ie6 and ie7. This has been mentioned on the forums (see CMINGSTER's comment here) a number of times and is listed on defect ticket #2440.
On any page other than the first, whichever image is chosen, lightwindow will display the last image from the previous page. This is highly disorientating for the user and thus makes the gallery module unfit for use for IE over multiple multiple pages - the effect can currently be seen on the live Silverstripe demo site.
Since the Flikr extension seems to work fine in this regard, would this suggest that the problem is less likely to be in the lightwindow.js and more likely in the gallery .js? - could a solution be found by looking at the way the Flikr module handles pagination?
