    When is Lightbox 2 going to be compatible with WordPress 2.5? The current version does not work and most people have upgraded their wordpress and can't use Lightbox 2. Please upgrade Lightbox please!

    I have the same problem, I have already post on it a few days ago and I had no reply.. We have to wait a new upgrade I guess...

  3. I use this lightbox2 plugin http://www.m3nt0r.de/blog/lightbox-wordpress-plugin/ with 2.5 with no problems at all.

    I install the plugin you recommand but I still have the same problem: the plugin works but I can't see the next and prev and the title... as you can see: http://francois.galea.free.fr/
    Have you got any idea?
    Thank in advance.

  5. Whoops, I hadn't used the next/prev buttons.

    When I get back this evening I'll try to set up a list of photos and see if I can figure out what's going on.

    Tweak line 45 of the lightbox.css file to read width: 45%

    Here it is inline:

    #prevLink, #nextLink{
    	width: 45%;
    	height: 100%;
    	background: transparent url(../images/blank.gif) no-repeat; /* Trick IE into showing hover */
    	display: block;

    I hope Lightbox 2 will be upgraded to support 2.5 gallery feature.

    FYI: I"m using the combination of 3 plugins and Lightbox works like a charm on WordPress 2.5:
    wp-lightbox- http://www.m3nt0r.de/blog/lightbox-wordpress-plugin
    lightbox-auto- http://mdkart.fr/blog/plugin-add-lightbox-pour-wordpress
    Flexible Upload- http://blog.japonophile.com/flexible-upload

    Hope that helps.

    I would recommend slimbox

    It does the same as lightbox 2 but is much 'lighter'

    Slimbox Plugin
    Wordpress plugin used to overlay images on the current page into neat Javascript-powered overlay popups. This plugin includes the new Slimbox 1.41 javascript written by Christophe Beils and got transformed into a WordPress Plugin by me. Slimbox is a 7kb visual clone of the popular Lightbox JS v2.0 by Lokesh Dhakar, written using the ultra compact mootools framework. It was designed to be small, efficient, more convenient and 100% compatible with the original Lightbox v2. Plugin Homepage

    hey all. here's what you need to do to fix it:

    download the latest version of lightbox: http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/#download

    then, open up the lightbox plugin folder in your plugins directory. open lightbox.js that came with the newest lightbox, and paste into and over the content in the lightbox.js file in the plugin folder. then, navigate to the Themes>Black folder in the lightbox plugin dir and open lightbox.css. Copy the contents from the lightbox.css file from the updated lightbox into that file. Assuming you're ok with the standard black theme, you're good to go. If you want, play with the css to change the overlay color, etc.

    hope that helps. would update the plugin if i had the time/permission

    I cant seem to get this to create the links for my images. Is there any code that needs to be added to a post to make the images become lightbox images? I am posting links to the post not using a gallery.

    Does this scan all my posts for img tags and adds the script code to it? I have disabled all my other plugins and still nothing works for this and am using the basic theme.
