Support » Plugin: Easy FancyBox » javascript error when the plugin is activated

  • Resolved hannakost


    hello everyone,

    I’ve download the plugin as a .zip file, extracted it, and uploaded the files to a new folder in my /plugin folder. then I activated the plugin via the wp-admin, but when the plugin is activated all of my .js files don’t work because of a problem.
    it seems that the problem is here:
    jquery.easy-fancybox-1.3.4.pack.js, in line 18, the error message is: “can’t read property ‘msie’ of undifined”.

    Hope that you can help me with it.

    Hi Hanna, could you share a link to the site where this error is occurring?

    I came across that msie error with another lightbox plugin i used- it has something to do with a deprecated method jquery.browser method.

    They’re dropping support of old ie versions, so old method will become unknown to browsers with the latest jquery.

    Yes, this is due to incompatibility of Fancybox with new jQuery.

    My theme loads jQuery 1.9.0 and Fancybox gives errors:
    b.browser is undefined in Firefox,
    Cannot read property 'msie' of undefined in Chrome.

    Changed jQuery to 1.8.0, error is gone.

    Please fix.

    A fix is planned. I hope to have time to implement it before WordPress 3.6 is released…

    Oh, thanks,
    I changed to 1.8.3 and it works now, but I have other problems with two jQuery plugins I have….

    Thanks again 🙂
