Support » Plugins » Flickr Gallery Lightbox not working

  • I have installed the latest Flickr Plugin with its own lightbox built in. Everything works fine, except the lightbox feature. Any ideas? It currently just links the thumbnails directly to the larger version on Flickr’s site.

    If you check out the plugin’s author’s website and click his thumbnails you will see how it is supposed to function.

  • Oh, and I am wondering if it is just something that needs to be put into the short code to call the lightbox script?

    My current short code for testing is:
    [flickr-gallery mode=”photoset” photoset=”72157614364568987″]

    Right now, the lightbox doesn’t get enabled for the shortcodes like that. I’ll set that up soon so it’ll be in the next release.

    I tested run the plugin on my local box and the lightbox effect looked like coming in by default. Then today I use it on a production site the lightbox effect is no longer there. I then tried activating the [lightbox 2] plugin but in vain.

    I enabled “use lightbox” option in both cases.

    I really need that lightbox effect for this great plugin.

    Could you send me a page where the lightbox is not working? I can’t be sure what is breaking it without at least seeing the page.

    Lightbox doesn’t seem to activate in Safari 4. It works fine in Firefox 3.x however


    It works in Safari 4 on my site. Can you show me an example?


    in my gallery, when you click a photo it doesn’t lightbox it just goes to flickr!

    Quire new to wordpress, so lay easy on me 🙂


    I am also having trouble with Lightbox. Here is the page I’m trying to get to work. The funny thing is that the lightbox DOES work – but only AFTER clicking “next page”. I am baffled.

    Nobody knows what’s happening? 🙁
    I’d try to tinker with it myself, but I’m a Javascript dunce.
