    Hi,

    All my images on my site are not opening up with Lightbox overlay anymore? They are going directly to the file location eg domain.com/images/picture.jpg

    Is there a compatibility issue with the new update to WordPress?

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hi I am having the same issue,

    Latest wordpress version, and I have just un-installed and re-installed the latest version of the plugin, it appears to not be working for images (goes direct to image url as above) or for Iframes (goes direct to external page URL).

    Any ideas?

    Cheers!

    The most common cause is a jQuery conflict somewhere. Often it's in the theme using an outdated or incorrectly implemented copy of jQuery. if you can shoot me a URL to look at I can see if there's anything out of the ordinary.

    I will say that I've also had this issue with sites I run and Lightbox Plus and it's always been because of jQuery.

    Hey Dan, Thanks for the quick response,

    I have had to disable your module and install an alternative one for the time being that the lightbox works for images on. I still want to go back to your module as it functions better. Let me know if you need me to enable your mod for you to diagnose it properly.

    I have not had any issues until upgrading wordpress to the latest version.

    Take a look though and let me know if it is anything obvious. If it makes any difference the iframe lightbox does not function on the admin side anymore either.

    Cheers!

    Hmm... ok unfortunately I won't be able to tell what's interfering with LBP with a different plugin. I'll see what I can do though.

    Odd, Dan I appear to have wasted your time as it is working again? !!!

    I tried it on 3 different machines last night and even uninstalled it twice.

    Sorry for the bother!!!

    EDIT

    It works on the home page but not on posts?

    the links for new and used should be working on this page as a lightbox, also all the images should show in the lightbox.

    I'm not seeing any errors on the page. Could there be any malformed HTML in there. I took a snapshot of the page source so I can work from that if you need to get a functional lightbox back in place for the time being.

    There should not be any, it was working right up until the WordPress update :/

    I have note edited the theme or anything in this time only installed the update.

    No worries. I'll keep looking at it though I have to admit I'm pretty baffled as there are no errors and everything looks correct in the page source.

    No Problem.

    Thanks again, seems of that it works on the home page (see the sidebar link to the trader) works but not the posts.

    Well, I honestly have no idea. I'll still look at it but I'm drawing a blank. Please try the very latest release in the event that corrected the issue.

    Hi Dan

    I have the same problem with WP 3.3 and the last version of the plugin. Could you please give me a clue? I didn't change anything in my blog.

    Thanks a lot.

    I'm still looking. No errors showing up that would indicate it shouldn't work.

    Hi Dan,

    I've deleted version 2.5.5 and installed the beta from your zip-file, but there is no change in displaying the images. I tested an other browser too (standard here is firefox and I tested with opera too) to avoid caching failure

    best regards

    for testing purpose I removed the additional ' rel="attachment wp-att-426"' from the second image at the post from the 12th of january, but this also doesn't effect the display

    Your Sharedaddy buttons also have a problem.

    In your Dawanda widget try remove this

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

    Widget will work as correct jQuery file is already loaded. Comes with WordPress. If it does not work their slider script is broken or not usable with current WordPress. If site was almost blank then jQuery might not be loaded already but is on your site.

    Problem is they tell you to do this, here http://de.dawanda.com/cms/c/de/Verkauferportal/38-FAQ/386-WerbeWerkzeug-Widget#Wie-kann-ich-mir-das-DaWanda-Widget-auf-meiner-Wordpress-Webseite-auf-meinem-eigenen-Server-einrichten but is wrong. They have no clue of WordPress. Loading 2 jQuery files is dumb. Different versions or loading one via a widget does not help.

    Also you have Fancybox loaded. Dont know if that is a problem or not. I would think a big yes. Since you use Eleganttheme I doubt there are options to disable. Not even sure it does anything actively but should it be a problem you can disable manually, somehow. Should probably check their forum.

    May be there is issue related to Lightbox Plus but you should fix these first.

    I aslo have the same problem.
    Latest version of WordPress and Lightbox Plus (2.5.5)

    http://www.designfather.com

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance :)

    This thread is going places :)

    Your problem is this http://cdn.designfather.com/wp-content/themes/open/js/jquery.tools.min.js Name hints file consist of jQuery.tools stuff and it does but oops, also includes jQuery 1.3.2 and then all bets are off. You can see in JS error console that Lightbox Plus think jQuery is 1.3.2 and so its .delegate http://api.jquery.com/delegate/ does not compute as it was added in 1.4.2

    Also has some "jquery.event.wheel.js" thing. Besides of course jQuery tools script. That is another jQuery library thing used for tabs etc.

    I see theme is from Themeforest so you should be able to contact dev. and ask for a fix? You cant because he removed theme? (I cant find it!) Well, then find another. May be from someone who updates their premium stuff? Idea of bundling is pretty good as an optimizing tweak, less http request, but not for mission critical scripts like this. No need to say jQuery 1.8.3 is ALSO loading. This bundle script is not identified or can act as a genuine jQuery = mess. And besides it is dirt old and probably wont work with lots of newer plugins, Lightbox Plus is one of them.

    If you can fiddle with theme code you can fix this with no dev. Brute force is simply to edit out the ancient jQuery. That would be hmm the first 2 lines under

    * File generated: Fri Sep 18 05:25:32 EDT 2009

    both starting with

    (function()

    Next problem could be jQuery tools as that is also very old. http://jquerytools.org/release-notes/version-1.1.1.html from 2009 so if compatible with jQuery 1.8.3 or not I dont know.

    If I am not blind and dev. really has removed theme you cant re-download it so make backup before doing anything. And perhaps start looking for new theme. Since this is crazy outdated other things probably are less than great. Time to die...

    Dev is still selling there http://themeforest.net/user/Maximus/portfolio so you can always ask if he can help. Oh, they have own forum and there is one for "Open" theme http://support.themedemo.net/forum/open

    Hi Dan,

    I've found the reason for my problem: it comes from the new media manager in WP3.5. As default at the insert of a new image, the link will be set to the side of this image instead of the image itself (see screenshot, sorry, it is a german side with german letterings :-) ).

    hope this helps others

    best regards
    Uwe
