    when I left click on the image it brings up the lightbox viewer. However if I right click > open in new tab the page opens fine

    Also how can I get the images to come across by 3 as default on a full width page like how it is displayed in the example screen shot?

    I am also experiencing the exact same issue as Jewelmint. I am trying to use the portfolio plugin to access documents.

    I am trying to open a document on my network by clicking on the image of the portfolio item instead of the default lightbox appearing with the thumbnail preview of the image. So essentially I would like to replicate the "View Project" link functionality when clicking on the image of the portfolio item

    Every time I left click on the image, the light box opens instead of the file. If I right click and open in new tab, the file opens. How do I get it so that I can left click on the image and it open the file directly?

    Is there any way to get around this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind Regards

    @Esmi: please can you point out the relevant section to me? I have read that through and cannot see anywhere that states, if you are experiencing the exact same issue as someone, to start an entirely new thread. It definitely states similar, but not exact.

    Hi, one way to fix this is remove colorbox from the link. If you open the afp.php file and remove class="colorbox" from line 1051, this will make the image link open as the projects page rather than color box (assuming the Image link is set to a projects page in the admin section). This is my page: http://flowingstone.co.nz/projects-3/

    As this will be over-written when the plugin is updated, I've actually created a copy of the plugin and re-named it so the change won't be overwritten. I'm not sure if this is the best method for editing plugins though?

    Hope this helps....
