Support » Plugin: Lightbox Plus Colorbox » Everything but the external links

  • [I’m actually using WP version 3.8.4 but there’s no option for that in the pull-down.]

    I just installed Lightbox Plus Colorbox and started out by testing the code from the demo page on your site. Everything worked except the external link:

    Secondary Lightbox (External Page Demo – WordPress.Org in iFrame)

    and the interactive flash demo also didn’t work. When I say “didn’t work,” what I mean is that they simply linked to the external sites but did not open them in a lightbox.

    I’m using the WordPress 2014 theme out of the box.

    Where should I look for the problem? Is there a dependency I’m missing?

    Thank you!

    If the demos are working for you on my site check out the source and grab the code from there in the event I screwed up the example code at some point.

    If the WordPress link is loading the https version of the link that won’t work, which I recently just discovered. Not sure why, something about mixed SSL/non-SSL sites and new browser security measures.

    The flash demo works for me – do you have anything that might block flash in your browser?

    Dear Dan Zappone,

    is there any solution to make https links work?


    I’d be interested in this as well. I frequently display Facebook photos (https://) in posts and would like them to open to a lightbox.
