I settled on Gallery View by Jack Anderson. Unfortunately the latest version of this plugin came with no instructions (due to a problem with the author’s web host, I think). After some playing around and asking a few questions on Twitter (thanks @leepowell) I was able to work it out.
I noticed a large number of people commenting on Jack’s site with the same problems I faced, so I decided to put up a simple example page.
The options available in the
$(document).ready section have changed slightly from those listed for version 1.x.
Since a few people have asked, I have put together a quick list for reference. This includes all of the new options and excludes older, depreciated options — it can be found here.
