WP jQuery Lightbox
wp-jquery-lightbox V 1.4.5 suddenly not working (10 posts)

    It could be that I updated a few plug-ins (although I have done it before), but jquery-lightbox plug-in had suddenly stopped working. All galleries had gone from nice to just sending me to image in the blog post?! or in the tab, when I click on image. The link goes directly to the image file. I have also updated WP to V3.6.1 recently

    Every listing has a gallery. I found jQuery Lightbox very convenient and simple. It worked well until now. I haven't made any changes in the code and all plug-ins are pretty much the same as they were for quite some time. I checked header.php and footer.php to make sure that everything is OK there, after reading these lines :
    Make sure your theme calls wp_head() and wp_footer() correctly.

    In one of the forums people attributed malfunction of jQuery Lightbox to WP recent migration?!?! Something about image links directed to the old ... whatever... servers or something.

    Funny (well... not really in fact). Same for me since I updated my WordPress to 3.6.1.

    Is there a fix for this bug ?

    Well, I couldn't find any solutions for this problem. I have found out however that this problem occurs with nearly every plug-in that uses jQuery Lightbox. Subsequently, they all didn't produce Lightbox effect. Some plugins were partially broken, some 100% broken.
    My "FIX' was simple. I needed galleries and so I researched for what was available on the market and after trying out a few, I stumbled upon SimpleViewer Gallery plugin. Although it works more like a gallery, I didn't have to redo my old galleries. Plugin picked up on all images "uploaded to this post" and generated a new gallery.
    It is a bit of a tedious process, to regenerate new gallery in every post (listing in my case) but I found it a suitable replacement. I am unaware if this problem will be addressed in the next WP release. You certainly can wait. I decided not to...

    I had the same problem on a friend's site that I take care of. The problem is with nextgen gallery. Rolling back to version 1.9.12 fixed it. (I knew to try this because I was having other problems with the newer versions of NextGen, and rolling back fixed those previously.)

    I think it's is from the most recent WordPress update

    It also never worked for me, maybe because this is the first time I install this plugin using the latest WordPress version as well.

    Never mind, my issue is solved by adding <?php wp_footer(); ?> in the footer. I forgot that in my theme.

    The plug-in (1.4.5 on 3.7.1) works only when I am logged out. I get an error on the firebug console on /wp-includes/js/admin-bar.min.js?ver=3.7.1
