If you don't have subfolders to navigate to, uncheck Show Home/Nav Button in Control Panel under Lightboxes GalleryLayout and Theme settings. This will hide the home button.
The colors relate to you possibly not uploading the most current index.html page to your server or it was from a different build of the gallery. The main page images are missing a class that images on the other pages (index2.html, etc) have, called img-polaroid, which sets the border color.
Thanks, I would like some way to scroll through the pages of images which I thought the home and nav button could be used for. I will hide it for now but can I create subfolders for the other image pages?
I appreciate the input on the border problem. I'll take a look although I figured out I need to completely upload everything fresh after making changes. Upped the whole project through ftp. Guess something got missed as you say.
I would also add that my only other issue is with watermarks not being on the images. I saw it in the preview but not live. Have not taken a good look at it yet though so may be something on my end.
Where would be the best place in index.htt to put a footer on the page for photo ownership rights?
