  1. What causes dotted/dashed lines to show across the images while being displaying in lightbox once next or previous is selected?

    Is there a fix for this?

    What do the lines look like? My ability to help you would be greatly improved if you were to provide a link to a page that demonstrates the issue you are describing.

Great article about using RSS as a Facebook alternative. I use RSS/feeds for news every day. Facebook, not so much.
