[SOLVED] Lightbox or Shadowbox not working

On many posts with images they are only displayed as a thumbnail, when the image is clicked I would like the whole image to be displayed. In the past I used Lighbox or Shadowbox, currently with this theme neither of them work.

Is there a way to get them to work, can't seem to find the solution in these forums and I am stunned no one else has had this problem.

Or is there an option in the theme options to do this automatically that I have missed?

Thanks for your hopeful help.

Are you running the latest version 3.2? There used to be problems in earlier versions. Both NextGen and WPG2 should work, I have not tried Lightbox/Shadowbox yet. Post an URL if you are running 3.2 and you're still seeing errors

Hi Flynn.. I am not getting an error, it just is not working. When I insert an image I am not displaying the full image in the post. When the image is clicked the image should appear in a new "window" in its full size.

In this when the image is clicked nothing happens. Does this make sense?

For instance, when you click on an image in this post using another theme the image pops out at you, so to speak. http://myboxing.mysportspen.com/2009...-it-april-yet/

I use Shadowbox JS 2.0.3.3, WP 27.1 and the theme without any problems, mabye you schould deactivate the plugin, upload it again and activate again.

Make sure you use the correct rel="shadowbox;" at the right place in your post, there is good support at : http://sivel.net/2008/02/shadowbox-js/

Does it work with the "Default" theme?

Has anyone been able to get lightbox or shadowbox to work with this theme? I've tried everything and all of the LB and SB stuff seems to be ignored.

The picture I clicked on was 2.8 Mb which is way too big for web stuff. It did open for me but the lighbox had to resize it from it's 4272px x 2402px size. Most pictures should be under 100k. I generally size mine to no more than 1000px at the widest at 72dpi.

Hi Larry,

Does the same apply to SWFs, do you think? They seem to load 1 out of 10 times in ie8, but in Firefox they work ok.

swf files are a different animal and I find IE to be "problematic". Can you post a url to an example?

Hey mintami,

I was having the same issue of the thumbnail links not showing in my post using Shadowbox-js. I have actually used this plugin on other wordpress sites in conjuction with the Atahualpa theme and have had no issues until now. It was driving me nuts that the little thumbnail image links were not showing and I finally figured out why! It's the class param in the <img> tag of the thumbnail that causes the break in plugin functionality. I realized, all the other times I used the shadowbox plugin feature, I manually typed in the smaller size. Not sure if that makes sense but check out the example below...

this is the linked image html copied from a post on my blog that is having the issues (from the hmtl view mode)...

<a href=".../MikaelyPatrick_04.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-393" title="Mikaely and Patrick's Wedding" src=".../MikaelyPatrick_04-70x47.jpg" alt="" width="70" height="47" /></a>

Do you see the class param?
class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-393"

If you delete it, your thumbnail should be visable. That did the trick for me... let me know if that works for you!

Ok, I just double checked, and the class param is not the problem, it's the title param. Delete that instead of the class and all is weel in the universe (for real this time :P)
