Support » Plugin: Polaroid Gallery » Fancybox feature not working on single images

  • Hi,

    I tried out Polaroid Gallery and I really, really like the look of the Polaroid style galleries it produces. Great!

    However, the fancybox/lightbox feature that enlarges immages with a zoom effect animation when you click on a thumbnail does only work in WordPress galleries, but not in single images that were inserted in a post or page without using the gallery feature. If you click on one of these single thumbnails, the large version linked to it is popping up immediately, but without any fancybox animation effects and without any navigation elements. It’s just the same standard behaviour as without any fancybox plugin installed.

    This prevents me from using the Polaroid Gallery plugin in any of my WordPress installations: I’d really like to use it for galleries consisting of two or more images, however individual images outside galeries just have to be handled in the same way, i.e. with all the fancybox effects as well. I think that most (if not all) other users would appreciate if you could fix this annoying issue…

    Thanks,
    Ralph

    Hi,

    Polaroid Gallery works only with images from the galleries it is true.
    If you want to have same effect for one image you could create gallery with only 1 images and that’s it.

    I find this case one of the particular cases because you are the first person of some thousands PG’s users who need such PG behaviour.

    Best regards,
    Tatiana

    Hi Tatiana,

    creating galleries with one image was my first idea as well. However, this is no real option due to it’s aesthetic limitations: While a single image may be regularily inserted in an article aligned left or right with the text flowing around it, you can’t achieve that with a gallery (which always uses the total width of the page with no text allowed aside to it). Plus it would require to edit a lot of articles manually.

    Here is an example post to show what I mean:

    http://www.fuerther-freiheit.info/2015/11/06/wie-die-rettung-des-lokschuppens-versemmelt-wurde-ein-erlebnisbericht/

    The first image at the beginning of the article should remain as it is, but it would be nice to have the four rows of three-image-galleries further down spiced up with “Polaroid Gallery”!

    A quick way to achieve this would be an option to enable/disable the lightbox functionality of “Polaroid Gallery”. With the fancybox disabled, I could continue to use another plugin for just that (like “Easy Fancybox”) without having two plugins with similar functionality struggling for air superiority… 😉

    P.S.: I’m fascinated by your traveling blog. I can’t decipher the cyrillic characters, but the photos are awesome!

    Yours,
    Ralph
