    I’ve checked the website and fancybox is causing some JS errors and stopping the execution of the rest of the code. So i’ve the following question:

    Are you adding the fancybox by yourself or by a wp plugin?

    Because it’s throwing an error that $ is undefined, WordPress doesn’t use $ as jQuery object, use “jQuery” instead

    Hi Miguel,

    Thanks for the reply!

    I’m using the Easy FancyBox plugin –

    It was just updated today, and I updated it on my dev site, but it’s still causing the conflict.

    Do you recommend editing the Easy Fancybox plugin, or is there another lightbox plugin you’d suggest?

    Oh sorry, i don’t think it’s Fancybox, it’s

    If you’re using this file inside wordpress, you should add it after jquery is being included, also change $ simbols to jQuery:

    $(document) to jQuery(document)

    I just deleted the reference to that javascript file. Unfortunately, the issue persists, when a month is clicked, instead of starting the dropdown animation, it goes to the year archive – i.e. /2012/.

    Do you know of anything else I can try? Thank you.

    The problem disappear but another one appears, I’m testing the site using Firebug (firefox web console tool), if you use Chrome you can use the Javascript console, then go to the website and you’ll see all the errors.

    Try to fix one by one, i used to have a problem with easybox because it removes the jquery included in wordpress and adds its own which is older, i would to deactivate all the plugins thar require JS and let mine on it, if it works, then start activating one by one, until it doesn’t work. Then you’ll know the plugin confict.

    The only plugins enabled are Easy Fancybox and jQuery Archive List Widget, and they are conflicting. jQuery Archive List Widget stops working when Easy Fancybox is enabled.

    Any ideas how to get jQuery Archive List Widget working with Easy Fancybox?

    Yes, the problem is that easy fancybox removes WordPress’ jQuery and includes an old jQuery. You can check fancybox’s source code and look for

    wp_register_script(‘jquery’,’url to fancybox’);

    and remove those lines to have newest jquery version, i haven’t tested but that’s the problem, easyfancybox remove wordpress jquery version and adds an outdated one.

    Your 1.4.2 update has fixed the conflict. Thank you!
