Lightbox not working (9 posts)

    Anyone have a clue why lightbox isn't working?

    I'm using chrome and lightbox2 plugin. The image activates properly, but I cant seem to close it unless I refresh the page.

    could it be a z-inex issue?

    You're missing a key part of the code:

    rel="lightbox"

    So I can only assume you've not ticked the box to enable the lightbox feature in the post.

    As a side note, try and optimise you JavaScript calls, you're doing a lot of JS HTTP requests for files that could probably be combined into one file.

    the box is ticked.

    Not really sure where to start with optimizing the JS, but thanks for the advice, I'll look into it.

    Even if I manually add the rel="lightbox" it doesn't seem to work.

  6. Use Firebug with Firefox, or the Chrome or Safari developer tools to see what JS is loading on your site and fix the JS errors I see.

    Looks like there's a ton of errors, but I haven't actually changed anything in the script since I got the theme... I don't even know JS so I don't know where to start even... Any pointers?

    thx

    Try a different theme and see if that resolves the issue. If it does rattle the theme creators cage in regards to the issues.

    Hmmm, even changing the theme didn't seem to work. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks
