Ajax Compatibility (2 posts)

    I started a thread a while ago on the topic, but was able to work around it, as I disabled Ajax on the site. We've since noticed that with Ajax disabled, the site loads *way too slow* and we have to re-enable Ajax. Unfortunately with Ajax enabled, Alpine Phototile doesn't work correctly. Instead of loading an image in lightbox, it'll load it standalone. Redirecting to other sites (such as statigram) works, it's just the lightbox/prettybox/etc that doesn't work.

    Here's the link:

    This works:

    but not the previous. I tried to redirect the page to the 2nd link, hoping it'd be a nice work around, but that's leading to errors of it's own.

    Any ideas or suggestions? I'm using the Gleam theme, but elegant themes.

    Both of those links took me to a blank page with a loading icon.
    I am aware that the plugin does not work well with dynamic themes or themes that use a lot of JavaScript. Particularly with what you are experiencing, "loading it standalone" means that another script has crashed and prevented any script that tries to load after it (like clicking on an image to load the lightbox) from working. This is a known limitation of JavaScript.
    Sorry I don't have any better advice, but I am really not sure what is causing the problem.
