FancyBox for WordPress
Fancybox not compatible with WP 3.5.1? Need help with gallery images (2 posts)

    In an existing site built with a commercial theme called Thesis, I tried to intall first Jetpack for its Carousel feature (didn't work) and now Fancybox--which also doesn't seem to work. I'm a novice, but could it be that since it says Fancybox was last updated a year ago it is not compatible with the latest WP release? Although, someone told me they just created a new site using Fancybox, so maybe that's not it.

    My site is http://www.findagoodwriter.com and I'd like the gallery pages (Work Samples) to have the carousel/lightbox functionality. As it is, it takes 2 clicks to get the images large enough to read the copy, and then when you close out of the image, it takes you out of the site.

    I installed Fancybox but I cannot seem to edit the gallery settings so that the images link properly to get it to work. Anyway, the gallery is the same as before I installed Fancybox.

    I had the same issue, but i´m already working fine with fancybox for wordpress and galleries.

    The problem is not because of the plugin, but a known bug of wordpress 3.5.1

    To work fine, Fancybox needs the gallery to be linked to the image file, but wordpress 3.5.1 is not saving this option.

    You can see some solutions here:


    I hope this information will help you!
