Support » Plugin: Meow Gallery (+ Gutenberg Gallery Block) » No longer compatible with lightbox?

  • Resolved etimager



    Meow is hands down the best gallery I’ve found- I love the ease of use. However, I use your gallery in conjunction with WP LIGHTBOX 2 and they recently quit playing nice together. This was around early/mid December. I thought I had a solution working, but no luck. Any chance you know hoe to fix this?

    Side note: I would prefer to use your Meow lightbox, but WP Lightbox 2 is the only one offering an integral option- They have a “download photo” button on both mobile and desktop lightbox. Once my clients purchase images, galleries are used for sharing with friends and family but ALSO downloading photos individually to mobile devices. The WP Lightbox 2 “download photo” button does not force download, rather opens the file in a separate page to right click and save. I would gladly pay for this feature if you ever decide to add it to Meow!

    Hi Emily 🙂

    Normally, this download feature is available. I have enabled it on my website, here: Any click will trigger the Meow Lightbox on this website, then there will be a Download button at the top right. Can you see it? It does what you said, it opens the image directly in a new window 🙂 This is possible through an option in the Meow Lightbox settings, called “Download Link”. Can you try?

    Hey Jordy,

    Thanks so much for your help! I got it working just in time for a wedding client. The Meow Gallery is an absolute lifesaver!

    Thank you!
