Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » Lightbox – problem with open link on the picture

  • Resolved arwaiden


    Enabled Lightbox blocked opening link on the picture (advertising banner) on the top of webpage.

    When I click to advertising picture where is link to some URL, no new page is open, only with the right mouse button.

    In Setting of NextGen: “What should I use for a lightbox?”
    a) Apply only to NextGEN images – LINK WORKS
    b) Apply only to NextGEN and WordPress images – LINK DOESN’T WORK

    In the header of WordPress page is standard widget Picture with link to URL.

    Is the mistake in Java code of NextGEN?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello @arwaiden,

    The image bellow DOPORUČUJEME seems to work, and it’s a linking image as well.
    What’s the difference between the two of them?

    Another thing we can try is to check for any existing conflict
    – Temporarily deactivate all your plugins except NextGen Gallery.
    – Is the problem solved? Then, it was caused by one of your plugins. Please check one by one and find the one causing the problem.
    – If the problem is not solved with the deactivation of the plugins, try changing to a standard WordPress theme, it could be a conflict with your current theme.

    Please, keep us posted, we are happy to help!

    Hello @gabyimagely,

    I deactivated all plugins except NextGen Gallery, but the problem was the same.

    Then I changed it to the standard WP theme and it didn’t work too.

    The image bellow DOPORUČUJEME is at the widget “Text” with HTML code:
    <p><a title="Text" href="URL" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img src="URL" alt="Text" /></a></p>

    The image on the top is at the widget “Header 1 – Advertisement” with “Picture” widget inside. The picture was added from WP Gallery and Setting view of file:
    1. Link to: Own URL
    2. URL: …
    3. Size: Original size
    It’s diffrence between the two of them.

    I tried replace “Picture” widget with “Text/HTML” widget and added the picture with link by HTML code and it worked good, thank you!

    But I don’t understand, why it don’t work with standard WP “Picture” widget.

    Good to find this solved. I am not entirely sure why it happened as I personally, wasn’t able to trigger the lightbox if adding an Image widget to a sidebar area. Perhaps in your case it adds a media class that makes NextGen recognize it as a regular WordPress Media image and respectively it applies the lightbox.
