Easy FancyBox
[resolved] Overlay is over images (7 posts)

    Hi,

    First of all thanks for this plugin, it serves me well.

    However, I have a problem with overlays: they are not around the picture as they should be, but cover all the page, which greys the picture. Note that I am using Nextgen Gallery, with the class="fancybox" rel="%GALLERY_NAME%" custom effect.

    How can I solve it?

    Link to an example (click any picture):

    The NExtGEN Geo plugin seems to include a second fancyBox stylesheet (twice! and for another version of fancybox) that is causing the z-index of the overlay div to be raised above that of the image div... No idea if you can disable inclusion of this stylesheet. You'll have to ask the plugin devs.

    Ok, thanks for the answer. The thing is I need fancybox/slimbox activated in Nextgen geo (it is necessary to display galleries on a map), and I need yours too for nextgen gallery.

    I noticed there was a conflict between both versions if I use fancybox in nextgen geo (it gives the option to use either fancyox or slimbox, both being included in the plugin), but not if I use slimbox. Strange that it interferes with the overlay only.

    Anyway it's a minor problem, I'll just disable the overlay for the time being, and post a message in nextgen geo's forum anyway.

    Is there an example page where this Geo plugin is using its own version of FancyBox? Maybe there is a way to get the two plugins to work together...

    For instance here:
    http://ailleurs.kanka.ch/carte-photos

    Mouse over a thumbnail, then click on 'More photos of this gallery': the gallery is displayed using NextGen gallery Geo's fancybox - or actually slimbox, as fancybox was conflicting with yours.

    By the way, I also reported the problem to the dev of thi plugin, frest.de. Link here:

    I see... the way the lightbox link is set up, it does not seem to be possible to make that work with Easy FancyBox.

    Anyway, I'll bud in on that other thread with my perspective on the issue ;)
