Lightbox Pop
[resolved] Not working. Dunno why. (6 posts)

    I'm having no success getting "lightbox-pop" to work, and by all accounts, it should.

    I installed the plugin and disabled any other plugins that might conflict with it (like my current lightbox plugin and "Use Gogle Libraries"). I'm running the latest WP v3.3.1 with PHP-5.

    I found no info claiming I need to add any special parameters to my tags, so I simply wrapped my "<img" tag with an anchor ("<a") link:

    <a href="mypic.jpg"><img src="mypic.jpg"></a>

    All this did was open the image in a new tab. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    Hi Mugsy

    I think you have misunderstood the purpose of plugin.
    The plugin is used to render custom content using lightbox.
    Right now it wont support loading the image gallery inside the lightbox.

    Based on the description, I'm under the impression that the purpose of the plugin is to display a single image (or video) in a fullscreen "lightbox" (like a popup, the same way other "lightbox" plugins do.)

    My ultimate goal is to display an FLV video in a lightbox. Is this not possible using this plugin?

    Yes definitely it is possible to show images and videos inside lightbox.

    If you could post the complete code that you have entered in the lightbox from admin area, I could help you.

    You are probably correct that I'm "misunderstanding the purpose of the plugin". It's not a Lightbox, it's a "Popup Window that resembles a Lightbox". One where you can't control if/when it opens or vary the content.

    Is there any way to only open the Popup when a link is clicked and change the content based upon that link?

    That would be much more useful.

    Please find the answers below

    it's a "Popup Window that resembles a Lightbox"

    Infact it is a lightbox, because a ligthbox is indeed a popup window that is displayed above a webpage.

    vary the content

    Since you are configuring the content from admin panel , you might feel that only static content can be displayed in it. But infact you can make it dynamic by any of the following mechanisms

    >place your dynamic content in some web page and load it as an iframe inside lightbox.
    >create dynamic contents using javascript and place it inside lightbox

    Is there any way to only open the Popup when a link is clicked and change the content based upon that link?

    Onclick trigger is available only in premium version. If you are comfortable with javascript you can setup different contents based on clicked element.

    If you are interested in any kind of customization or related services, please contact support desk
