[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Thickbox not working WordPress 2.8.2 / NextGen 1.3.5 (28 posts)

    The effects do not work when I was running older versions although I cannot remember which versions I used. I am running WordPress 2.8.2 / NextGen 1.3.5. They used to work but now the images get displayed in the browser window as the image itself instead of a javascript pop over effect.

    Here is an example:

    http://www.maverickwebcreations.com/2009/07/20/maverick-keyword-researcher-preview-7-microsoft-oci.html

    Click on the thumbnails and you will see there is no thickbox even though it has been enabled.

    I tried disactivating all plugins except the nextgen and it does not work too!

    I have the same problem as vincentrich and I can't find the solution. Please help...

    for example: http://www.radiokvit.com.ua/?page_id=1536

    also I want to add that this problem with Thickbox actual only for my current template. When I try another - everything ok. But when I used previous versions of WordPress and NextGEN with this template everything was ok.

    Same problem.

    It worked perfectly until I updated it.

    WP 2.8.2 and Next Gen 1.3.5

    Anyone who have figured out a solution?

    Does it have something to do with the fact that the browser downloads a css named: nggallery.css?ver=1.0.0 ?

    I have deleted and reinstalled Next Gen but the problem is still there... My website was almost finished and then suddenly a problem like this appear... Argh!

    i dont think its nextgen that's the problem.. its a bad upgrade/upload of WP core files

    i have the same issue (with all javascript related things not working in the admin, IE adding tags, thickbox for image uploads etc) and when i looked in the head of the doc, jquery & all the other standard jscript libraries aren't in the head...

    Hey everyone,

    I had the same problem, but I realized that I did not have the

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    hook in my footer.php file. Once I added that in, the thickbox javascript was added and it fixed the way the images displayed. Worth a try. Hope that helps!

    You genius dleek! Must admit I thought you'd pasted in the wrong tag there but I added <?php wp_footer(); ?> as the first line in my footer.php and it solved the problem!

    I wonder how come it's missing?

    Many thanks,
    benz1

    I don't know why it wasn't in there benz1, but from my experience, not all themes have that hook included.

    Either way, I'm glad it helped you all!

    @bluewavecoast, try putting the <?php wp_footer(); ?> just before the </body> tag, or before the </div> at the end of your footer.

    If that doesn't work, check to make sure you have the <?php wp_head(); ?> hook just before the </head> tag in the header.php file.

    @dleek: You're the best, the <?php wp_head(); ?> worked for me! I'm so happy :D

    dleek, You are my life saver!
    I had been spending so much time on resolving this problem and almost given in to switch to other plugins or blog system.
    Thank you!

    Putting the missing pice of code inside the footer.php is not a problem, but when I search for that file: wp-footer I can't find it on the server/ any folder ???

    Anny help is welcome!!!

    Kind regards, MMike
