Lightbox Plus Colorbox
Lightbox doesn't work with Thesis? (4 posts)

    About a month or so ago, lightboxes stopped working on my site. I've tested another theme which was able to show lightboxes correctly, so I'm guessing it's my Thesis 2.0.3.1 theme.

    Does anyone have any thoughts? I'd like to bring this up with the Thesis developers, but I'm not sure what's wrong.

    Example here: http://www.backup-software.com/aomei-backupper/

    It says in the FAQ for the Lightbox Plus ColorBox plug-in:

    "You may be lacking wp_footer() function in your footer.php of your WordPress theme."

    I don't see that the Thesis theme has a footer.php file or it may be buried in a directory that Lightbox is unfamiliar with? I'm uncertain how/where to add the wp_footer() to possibly restore functionality.

    Any idea?

    You can change the theme from Thesis to one of the WordPress defaults and copy the necessary scripts into the Thesis page headers and footers. Lightbox will then work with the Thesis theme.
