Support » Plugin: Lightbox Plus Colorbox » Not working properly

  • I’ve installed this plugin, unfortunaltely I must admit it does not work properly, way too buggy to be reliable, and the support is very poor. But it is not the only one: I’ve tried many modal popups plugins and none of them works like it should, even premium ones. Very disappointing experience, I think I’ll have to forget all this mess and code my own modal window functionnality.

  • I, too, installed this plug-in with great hopes that it would work. I watched the excellent videos by Phillip Gledhill, read all the developer’s support, and still it’s not working correctly. I disagree with you, Eric, about the support – it’s good. The developer in the past has even written posts on this forum, which I’m told doesn’t often happen. The plug-in, however, still doesn’t want to work for me. I entered the recommended code into the posting with the gallery (yes, I set Lightbox Plus to work with WP galleries) and still it only takes me to a browser window with the image and no interactivity. I inactivated my other plug-ins. Nothing. The only thing I haven’t checked is whether my jQuery is up to date. Where do I do that?

    I installed another plug-in that automatically updates to the latest version of jQuery and Lightbox Plus still isn’t working. Time to move on and try something else, I guess. (I’m pessimistic that I won’t have the same problems with any one that I try.) Oh, I’m using Headway Themes – build your own WordPress theme, if that makes any difference.

    Will you be updating for WordPress 4?

    Well geez, Eric, it’s not like I get paid for this. What do you mean it doesn’t work properly? How is it supposed to work?

    9 times out of 10 there is another version of jQuery loading incorreclty from a theme or another plugin that causes conflicts.

    Give me some more details and I’ll see what I can do.

    Also Eric, if you are going to code you own you might take a look at the Colorbox jQuery plugin I use, it works very well on it’s own.
