Overlay greyed out with NextGen 2.0 and 2.02 and WP3.5 and 3.6 (9 posts)

    With NextGen 1.9.12 and 2.0. WP 3.5 or 3.6, Jetpack 2.3.4, the popup overlay for an image occurs, but is then immediately covered in dark gray - perhaps the gray that should appear behind the image?

    Please help resolve this!

    Thank you.

    Same here in Safari 6.0.5, FF 22 and Chrome 28 on OSX 10.7.

    It seems to be a z-index-issue. I have an incomplete fix by adding

    #lbCenter { z-index: 10000 !important; }

    to my themes style.css so at least the picture is visible but not the text below it

    I have the same problem; for chrome, it appears without the grey cast but there is nothing showing in the text.

    I ran into this too on my site. I found the fix over at stackoverflow. Browse to the plugin area of wordpress go to slimbox and click edit. It takes you to an edit plug-in page. Then select the slimbox/stylesheets/jquery.slimbox.css file and do the following.

    add z-index:1; to #lbImage { }
     remove z-index:9999; from #lbCenter, #lbBottomContainer { }
    and remove z-index:9998; from #lbOverlay { }

    Credit goes to Lodder over on stackoverflow

    @ebarb thanks that works in WP3.5.x but it gets broken again in WP3.6 and there's no fix in the slimbox css file.

    I think it's jquery 1.8.3 vs 1.10.2 from 3.5.6 to 3.6

    Same issue here.

    Add this to your themes style.css for a temp fix (does not fix caption only the image): It appears the overlay is being appended to the caption container.

    #lbBottomContainer {
    	z-index:9998 !important;

    The solution by advancedstyle works fine for my site. 1.9.13 of NextGen, and 3.6.1 of WP. Thanks very much for this, its a great help.

    Thank you for finding and sharing the fix! I noticed that if I made the first suggested changes to the plugin stylesheet, it over-wrote the theme stylesheet (which makes sense, but I had to try it anyway). So, I removed the edits to the plugin stylesheet.

    If anyone is able to find a fix to the captions being grayed out, I'd greatly appreciate it!
