[Resolved] [Plugin: Easy FancyBox] not working with my theme

Viewing 5 replies - 1 through 5 (of 5 total)
  • It must be a custom theme thing. It’s not working and I’m using a custom child theme I made, instead of a new theme altogether. Easy fancybox won’t work.

    This is just an update. As mentioned above, I use child themes in WP 3.5 in combination with the twenty twelve theme. I couldn’t figure out why easy fancybox or other lightboxes would not work. So I got to tinkering with the images in my posts.

    I edited the image link to “link to image” This is the same setting as set to “media file” vrs (attachment page) when uploading an image.

    So to sum it up, if your images are set to the attachment page in the upload section, the lightboxs won’t work. Set link to image so it calls from wp-content instead of your catagory/post page (whatever it’s called can’t remember) If it is NOT set to media (wp-content) then you only target another window when the image is clicked on. If the image link is set to the image/media file, the lightbox will display it. You can see how it works even with child themes and using tewnty twelve here:

    Hi, fix your custom script /wp-content/themes/xxxx/js/site.js as it causes an Uncaught TypeError in jQuery, breaking all other jQuery extensions. It looks like it has some invalid characters there at the end:

    Â Â $('.flexslider').flexslider({
    Â Â Â Â animation: "slide"
    Â Â });

    You tried to put in tabs maybe? Make sure you use a text editor that does only plaintext. Or use the WP theme editor and just leave out tabs as they only serve an optical (human readability) purpose… Make that part look like this:

    animation: "slide"

    Hi Ravan, thanks so much for taking the time to help me out – I’ve implemented those changes but it still isn’t working I’m afraid.

    I’ve even changed the media settings to look for the links in the correct div name.

    The error remains. Apparently, there is no flexslider extension (did you forget to include that file?) so just remove those lines.

    NOTE: do not take out that last }); because that is part of the wrapping that starts with jQuery(document).ready(function($) { at the beginning of the file.
