Support » Plugin: Simple Lightbox » Conflict with The Events Calendar Plugin

  • Resolved Andrew Leonard


    Have a look at the above page and especially at the left hand side bar
    It shows the Events Calendar Upcoming Events Widget
    Click on any image in the main page and it will open up in the lightbox, courtesy of your plugin
    Close the lightbox and wait a second or two an you will see the Event calendar Widget dissapears from the left hand sidebar and some other Event calendar content appears
    Any ideas about what is going on here and how I can prevent it happening?
    I have repeated this in my localhost with only the Events Calendar and your plugin activated and the same thing happens
    It happens on any page/post with an image that opens up in the lightbox, not just this page

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi, it appears that the sidebar widget may be reacting to an event the browser. I would recommend contacting the developers of that particular widget as they will likely have a better idea of what their own code is reacting to.

    I would also recommend disabling all other plugins to ensure that the behavior is not being caused by a different plugin altogether.

    Let me know what you hear from the widget’s developers and I’ll see if anything can be done from SLB’s end.

    Thank you. From the other thread, it looks like the issue is related to how the Events Calendar plugin handles browser history states.

    As this behavior is outside of SLB’s control, I’m closing this thread for now.

    Please update this thread if the other plugin’s developers provide details on what can be done on SLB’s end, and I would be glad to reopen this ticket and take another look.
