[resolved] What Lightbox to use as of WPPA 4.3.11 (14 posts)

    For 4.3.11 you write:

    The embedded lightbox has been removed due to licencing problems. You can still specify links to lightbox but you will need a separate lightbox plugin to make it work.

    What Lightbox should I use ?
    What one will work for sure. Do you have any advice so that I can install it prior to the WPPA upgrade.

    Thanks,

    That works more or less... I liked the embedded version much better.

    This is very "jumpy" and sometimes it shows the box but as often it shows a Browser-window (timing ?).

    I'll later test with other Lightbox editions.
    Thanks,

    There might be a problem with using the Lightbox.

    In a slideshow, when I click a FS for the first time the lightbox pops up.
    However when I scroll left/right and click the next FS the photo shows up in a browser window.
    This happens all the time.

    PS .... have to test with lightbox-plus ... too many settings for now !

    Tested a few more... like lightbox 2 and 3. The links from the widgets all work, the first slide only if the page did not got complete from an ajax operation, so my conclusion is that all the lightboxes take only effect on images (that have rel="lightbox") at the moment of document.ready.

    I am afraid that we have to live with the fact that lightbox does not work on fullsize images for the time being.

    After all i do no longer understand why it used to work anyway...

    Didn't know there are so many Lightbox plugins......

    So far this looks good in your test ... I'll patiently wait as this is more of a nice to have than a must have.

    Yes works great. Thanks again.
    Works fine for me in all Browsers, using all Lightbox-3 defaults....

    There may however be a problem using something else than the Lightbox-3 default settings.
    I'll have a look at the Lightbox-3 forum and report it over there.

    FYI:
    The Lightbox-3 plugin adds a menu option: BoiteAWeb
    If I select that I get:

    Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function 'baw_about' not found or invalid function name in /home/deb9580n6/domains/whiskydesignaward.com/public_html/wp/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 405

    Also when I change "Lightbox Appearance" to a differen colour, I do not get to see any lightbox ?!

    But, what I needed is there ..... Thanks again,

    As it currently works for me I too am not in a hurry .... and that is good because it is very quiet over there on the Lightbox-3 forum.... ?!

    Have a nice weekend,

    Thank you.

    FYI: what i did was (in wppa-slideshow.js):
    a very early init (way before dom ready):

    var myLightbox = null;

    and a magic line of code right after the fadein of a new slide:

    if (myLightbox) myLightbox.updateImageList();

    It took a few hours but the simplicity is charming.
    As soon as i have nothing else to do i will see if i can find a similar trick for other lighboxes.
