Support » Plugin: Simplest Gallery Plugin » "Image" in front of title and number on Fancybox overlay

  • Resolved aecorn


    I’m fiddeling a lot with CSS, and trying to get rid of “Image” in front of the the text overlay title in fancybox.
    To this point, ive been doing it by going into the php file and commenting it out, but this gets overwritten every time you update the plugin.
    Could you possibly remove it, or add a “translation box” to the plugin-settings? Im guessing this must be slightly frustrating for people who have sites in other languages than English as well. The easiest solution would maybe be to give it an ID/class, so we could disable it via CSS etc.

    Thanks again!

    sure, this is interesting.

    Can you send me a ZIP of the modified file to info (at) so that I can make a DIFF and implement a comfortable solution?

    I just added a span ID to the “pretext” so it can be hidden via CSS

    	display: none;

    line 145, lightbox.php

    return "<span id=\'fancybox-title-over\'>'.__('<span id=\'fancybox-title-pretext\'>Image</span>','simplest-gallery').' "+(currentIndex+1)+" / " + currentArray.length + (title.length ? "   " + title : "") + "</span>";

    Your solution puts some HTML in the “Image” text which I don’t like, but I just quickly implemented a variation of this with works better.

    I also added a “Custom CSS” box in Simplest Gallery global settings, so that CSS tweaks you apply will always stay there throughout updates.

    If you would like to beta-test it, just email me at the above address, otherwise just wait a few days for the new release.

    With this new release (5.3) you will just have to set

    #fancybox-title-pretext {

    in the new Custom CSS settings box and you’re done for good.

    Already tested, works like a charm 🙂

    Wow, cool! Thank you!
    Ive seen custom CSS-boxes like this in a couple of plugins already, and they work well, as long as you dont migrate site, or loose connection to your database somehow etc.
    I can always set it in my theme’s css as long as the “pretext” has an id I guess. But this will work great!

    Yes, just be sure to update next week, I’ll release version 4.3 on July 5th.

    Then let me know if it worked for you.

    Hello, new release is out, you should be now able to set that labels hidden as above described, by using the new Custom CC box in the settings.

    I am marking this topic as solved, if it necessary, feel free to reopen it.


    Great! Works perfectly thanks!
