Support » Plugin: Simple Lightbox » Group gallery items

  • Resolved Danny


    Does the “Group gallery items separately” mean that if I had 3 galleries with 3 images each, then the slideshow should be 1/3 only?

    If Yes, then I think it’s not working. Because it displays 1/9.

    Yes, this option displays links in the same gallery as an independent slideshow in the lightbox.

    Grouping is currently supported for classic WordPress galleries. If you are using classic WordPress galleries, please provide a link to a page that exhibits the issue you are experiencing and I would be glad to take a closer look.

    Support for block-editor galleries is planned for a future update. You can vote on this feature, as development is prioritized by demand.

    Just following up to see if you were experiencing this issue when using classic galleries?

    If so, please provide the previously-requested details, and I would be glad to take a look.

    This ticket will be closed in 24 hours due to inactivity.

    Here’s the link;

    Each “portfolio” is using a separate gallery created with the classic editor. Except, if you click on any thumbnail it loads not 1/3.

    Hi, it looks like the page is built using more than just WordPress’ classic editor– Elementor, a table plugin, etc. It may be possible these other plugins are affecting how SLB sees the galleries.

    Please provide more details of how you are building the page, including links to other plugins used so that your issue can be reproduced.

    It may also be worthwhile to create a test page/post solely using WordPress’ classic editor (e.g. without any extra plugins/shortcodes) to isolate the issue further. Please provide a link to this test page once created.

    Thank you.

    Okay. I’ve created 3 test variations and each of it has 2 galleries of 3 pictures each.

    1. Classic editor – works (each gallery slideshow shows 1/3 each)

    2. Guternberg / Block editor – nope (galleries combined into slideshow showing 1/6)

    3. Elementor (text editor element) – nope (galleries combined into slideshow showing 1/6)

    Thank you for the additional details. Elementor must process galleries differently than WordPress itself.

    Gallery Block grouping is planned. You can vote for and add feedback to this feature here, as development is prioritized based on demand.

    Due to the way Elementor processes its elements, an extension would likely be required for full support. You can vote for and add feedback to the Elementor extension here.
