Support » Plugin: jQuery Colorbox » [Plugin: jQuery Colorbox] Colorbox works on some images but not all….

  • Resolved Agnes


    I have installed colorbox and tested it against other plugins: it seems to me much better!
    (I had an old wp-lightbox that I am trying to replace)

    However, I cant get it to work in one instance and dont get why….

    On this page: (demo/demo) it works on the featured image as well as gallery

    On this page
    It should work on zoom (other plugins do) but it does not.

    My code is like:

    <a rel="lightbox[objects]" class="thickbox-link" href="
    <?php echo $image_url[0]; ?>" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"
    title="<h5><?php the_title();?></h5>
    <?php the_excerpt();?>
    <a href=&quot;<?php the_permalink();?>
    &quot; class=&quot;link-more&quot;>Read more</a>">ZOOM</a>

    And it renders in HTML:

    <a rel="lightbox[objects]" class="thickbox-link" href="" target="_blank" title="<h5>Demo for Meri</h5>
    <p>This is just to show Meri how the admin will work for her.</p><a href=&quot;			&quot; class=&quot;link-more&quot;>Read more</a>">ZOOM</a>

    I have tried remove both rel=”lightbox[archive]” and class=”thickbox-link” from the link, but it still does not work.

    Any idea?

    The theme uses other jquery stuff, but because it works in toher places, I dont think it is the issue…?

    I just took a look at your page, and jquery-colorbox doesn’t seem to be active.




    Indeed, I ended up using a prettyphoto lightbox that was built in with my theme.
    I could not get it to wwotkk with this one
    But I appreacieaed it and certainjly will use it on anoter site!

    i tried installing other similar plugins and it was staying all the same – old posts were showing galleries/colorboxes/lightboxes normally while new didn’t…
    was looking for differences between new and old posts and bingo! – looks like i found solution!

    In gallery settings (inside the post)>
    Link thumbnails to:
    “Image file” should be checked, not “Attachment page”
    //when “attachment page” is checked gallery/colorbox is not working

    hope it will help others as well :))



    I am curious what is the output HTML when ‘image file’ or ‘attachment page’ is used!
