Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Activity Plus » Lightbox replacement

  • Hi Bojan!

    Thank you and your community for this fine plugin!
    I’ve stumbled across an issue when viewing pictures. I’ve installed a seperate lightbox plugin to allow a better showcase of the images, but this is not reflected in the uploads I post using Activity Plus.

    From what I gathered from previous posts, the plugin has a build in lightbox?
    Is there anything I can do to override this?

    Much appreciated!

    Hey shyparo,

    How are you doing today?

    This would be possible by using a peice of code that you can add to your wp-config.php file.

    The one you’re looking for is this one:

    define('BPFB_USE_THICKBOX', 'ltb-special');

    This method would require you knowing the class that is being used for that specific lightbox, and once you know that you would replace “ltb-special” with the name of that class.

    This would make plugin to use this lightbox instead of the default one if that makes sense.

    Hope this helps 🙂


    Hi Bojan,

    Superb! I’ve just tested it by adding the piece of code you provided ( ACE! ) and it worked out of the box. Not sure if this is a coincidence, but thank you very much!

    I’d like to mention one little apparent bug I’ve found too, or would you like me to put this in a separate topic?

    Thank you again!

    Is there anyway to get the Activity Plus working in the forums or post replies so members have a visual as reference. That would be WAY cool.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hey shyparo,

    Glad to hear that worked 🙂 In relates to the bug for me personally either is fine really. However opening a new one would probably be more helpful for other members that are potentially searching for the same problem if that makes sense 🙂

    @be-sting Unfortunately there is no way to do that out of the box, something like that would require custom coding.


    Hey @shyparo can you please specify which lighbox plugin you used to override the default lightbox…..i m in a similar situation right now…..



    not working for me. using “td-modal-image” but no result. Any help?
