[resolved] [closed] Hatch, native gallery Lightbox captions (3 posts)

    Hello, I am using the hatch theme and I have captions under all my thumbnails that I would like to show up in the lightbox gallery. I am using the native WP gallery, and I have found plugins that will create the type of lightbox with captions I am looking for BUT when they are active and you click a picture, it opens two lightboxes- the native one and the new one from a pluggin. Eek.

    I'd rather stick with the native gallery, I like the way hatch displays it. I just need captions, title, or a description to show up.

    Check out http://micheleboyer.com/?page_id=296 to see the thumbnails, captions, and lightbox. Thank you thank you.

    Fixing all my own problems today since getting a response on here seems to never happen. Anyways...

    Deleted this

    wp_register_script( 'hatch_fancybox', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.pack.js', array( 'jquery' ), '1.0', true );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'hatch_fancybox' );

    from my functions.php

    and activated a different lightbox. The hatch theme uses a it's own fancybox pre installed with the theme in the functions, so you have to delete it if you want to use another, otherwise you'll have two lightboxes and people will think your site is ridiculous.

    Hey, I'm also trying to do this. I'd rather use Jetpack gallery (slides better on mobile) but when deleting the scripts from the functions.php nothing is working.

    It's a great theme but I wish there was a way to not use the baked in gallery options. Still looking for way to remove it completely.
