Auto Thickbox
[resolved] Caption size and close box (4 posts)

    It sounds like Auto Thickbox and WordPress 3.9 have a style incompatibility.

    If you go there and clic the first image, you will see the caption is bigger than expected, and the close box is upper right instead of lower right.

    Step to reproduce :
    - WordPress 3.8.x + Auto Thickbox : ok
    - upgrade to WordPress 3.9 : ko

    By the way, thank you for this great plugin.

    Best regards.

    Thanks for reporting this. The plugin makes use of the bundled thickbox.js file and the accompanied thickbox.css file from the WP core.

    In 3.9 they removed a some of the styling the thickbox display which is causing the captions to be different. I was getting ready to release a 3.9 version, but since you pointed this out I'll need do some tweaks around the thickbox css.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond and explain the issue.

    I noticed you fixed the caption, but it doesn't look like the close box is getting better.

    By the way, I don't know if you fixed that, already, but in the past, I had to change #branding index of built-in theme 2011 to fix the menu bar being displayed above auto-thick view.

    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");
    /* Auto Thickbox stack order fix */
    #branding {
            z-index: 99;

    Actually with WP 3.8 and the "modernization" of the dashboard, the close box got relocated to the top right hand corner as also became a dashicon (webfont) as opposed to an image.

    I had to essentially fork the thickbox.js and a portion of the .css in this release to maintain some backwards compatibility. On the converse WP uses thickbox for several of it's internal needs so I opted to keep the revised version of the close box. Pre-WP 3.8 versions should have the old style bottom right close icon.
