  • After tinkering for quite a while, I finally got the plugin to work. Turns out I needed to “transition” and “easing” effects to make it work on my site. Awesome plugin. Works wonders! I still have a few questions.

    1. Say I have two WordPress galleries inserted into my post in different sections. They show completely different objects. Is there any way to fix Easy FancyBox so that when I click on an image from the first gallery, it only scrolls through images corresponding to that first gallery and excludes the rest?
    2. Is there any way to set a maximum pixel width/height for images? I’d like them all to pop up in one scaled size if possible.
    3. How do you activate the “mouse wheel scroll” effect seen on the FancyBox website?
    4. Thank you to the developer for this awesome plugin.

  • I figured out my own answer to question #1. I was reading that wrong.

    Also, is there any way to make the title read from the “caption” in WordPress, not the title or alt tags?

    1. Please share what you did to make it work for you. Others might learn 🙂

    2. FancyBox is designed to always scale to the full image size (unless that would exceed the view port / browser window size) and there is no option to turn that off. The only way to get all your gallery images be depicted in the same way is to make sure they all are of the same size.

    3. Mouse wheel scroll should be active out of the box. If it is not, there is something going wrong. Give me a link if you want me to take a look.

    About the caption as title: I’ve had that request before and I’m considering it as a pro feature in the upcoming version…

    1. I simply had to change the transition type from “elastic” to “fade.” For some reason, “elastic” mode does not work with my set-up.
    2. Okay, that’s no big deal. Thank you!
    3. Very odd. Here’s my page. I also seem to have a new problem (that didn’t exist before) where the close button and gallery navigation arrows are invisible.

    Thank you for the awesome support for your plugin. Do you have an email list? I’d love to be notified when you release a paid/pro version. Great work. Yours is by far the best gallery implementation I’ve seen.

    It appears that the missing buttons are due to “WP Minify” incompatibility. The image sources are all changed into plugins/wp-minify/cache/fancybox. But, there aren’t images in that folder. I temporarily placed them in there to kind of fix the problem.

    Hmmm… it looks like your theme is missing a crucial part:

    Place the following code right before the closing </body> tag:

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    It also explains why elastic transitions do not work on your site.

    The incompatibility with WP Minify is known. If you can exclude from minification the plugins css and js files (they are already minified except for some jQuery extension licensing text) all should be fine.

    For updates on the plugin you can subscribe to the Easy FancyBox feed 🙂


    Thank you for the footer note. Also fixed other site problems. 😀

    Also, the reason my excludes from minification didn’t work before was that I needed a ?ver=1.3.4 after the JS files. Hope anyone else with this problem will land on this page from Google and see these problems solved.

    Thank you for your help!
