    To use your own Lightbox simply disable CataBlog’s Lightbox and add whatever appropriate HTML markup your Lightbox needs to the CataBlog Template you are using.

    I cant do it, can you give me an example?

    I am not familiar with the Lighbox plugin you are using, but something like this usually works. Pay special attention to the rel attribute of the anchor tag.

    <a href="%LINK%" class="catablog-image" rel="lightbox" %LINK-TARGET%>
    	<img src="%IMAGE-THUMBNAIL%" alt="" />
    	<strong class="catablog-title">%TITLE%</strong>


    If I disable the lightbox in Catablog, I am successful with using WP Lightbox 2 plugin, but I don’t know how to get the description info in Catablog items to show in that case.

    On this page each item has a description and a buy button.

    Can this render in the other lightbox? I’m using the Gallery view.


    Hi @turiyamoore what catablog template are you using?

    gallery template.

    Hi, the gallery template has the proper tokens. I don’t use WP Lightbox 2 plugin. So I can’t really help you with this.

    However there has to a be a way for you can call CataBlog token in WP Lightbox 2 plugin.

    Kind regards

    You should be able to set a selector or some kind of markup requirement for lightbox 2 to work with an image. I recommend enabling both catablog lightbox and lightbox 2 and setting it so that lightbox 2 ignores catablog items. I am not sure how to do this off the top of my head, since I am not familiar with lightbox 2, but I am sure it is possible.

    macguru2000, Thanks. Is there another lightbox plugin you are familiar with, so you can help me make this work?

    thanks! Any tips at all would help.
