Support » Plugin: Simple Lightbox » Does not work with featured/thumbnail image

  • Resolved RogerUsh


    In my theme I am using this code to show the featured/thumbnail image of the post:

    if ( has_post_thumbnail()) {
       $large_image_url = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id(), 'large');
       echo '<a href="' . $large_image_url[0] . '" title="' . the_title_attribute('echo=0') . '" >';
       echo '</a>';

    But Simple Lightbox does not hook into the code on the front end and the link goes to the image source.

    I tried adding data-slb-active="1" data-slb-internal="0" to the img tag, but it did not work. What is the best way to get Simple Lightbox to work with the featured image?

    SLB activates links inside post, page, or widget content. Post thumbnails may be supported in the future however.

    I’ve moved on to this jquery plugin:

    Works real solid!

    Glad you found a solution that works for you 🙂

    I did this and it worked for me:

    <?php $FeaturedImage = wp_get_attachment_image_src ( get_post_thumbnail_id ( $post->ID ), 'single-post-thumbnail' );  ?>
                        <?php if ($FeaturedImage) { ?>
                            <div class="ListedImage four alignleft"><a href="<?php echo $FeaturedImage[0]; ?>" rel="slb slb_internal" data-slb-active="1" data-slb-internal="0"><img src="<?php echo $FeaturedImage[0]; ?>" /></a></div>
                        <?php } //End - if there was a featured image ?>

    I’m glad you found a solution that worked for you. Just wanted to note that all of SLB’s undocumented attributes (e.g. data-slb-internal, etc.) can change at any time, so hardcoding these values could cause unexpected behavior in a future update.
