[resolved] Image links to new page first, not lightbox display (2 posts)

    Hi. I just installed Lightbox 2, and I have several images for a website I'm putting together for a friend. When I click on one of the links, it takes me to another page that displays the image by itself within the website....as in it's not a white browser screen with the image on it, rather the image is displayed over the standard website layout.

    Once I reach this point, clicking on the image kicks lightbox 2 into gear, and it works great. I'm just wondering if there is a way to bypass the middle step here and go straight to the lightbox display. For what it's worth, it appears that the link for the middle step uses the image name as a part of the link.

    I'm using Lukoo theme, if that makes any difference. And I'm .php/.html literate, though by no means a pro. From what I'm seeing, I can't figure out a way to skip the middle step.

    Any help would be great. Thanks!

    OK, it's quirky, but I discovered that if I edit the image, and click "None" next to Link URL, then update, then edit the image again and click "Link to Image", that fixes the problem. Just in case anyone else was wondering.
