[Plugin: Lightbox 2] Cannot get it to work (17 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm having troubles getting the plugin to work. It doesn't auto-add the html code to images (even though I have auto-append html enabled). I also couldn't find what was I supposed to add exactly to the html if I have that disabled.

    Lightbox 2 is great, hope to get it working on my wp too :(

    I'm using http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shadowbox-js/ now, which works perfectly - and requires zero special setup or tags.

    Maybe you set it up wrong, because it works for my website: http://mudlet.org/screenshots/

    works like a charm

    just need to add: rel="lightbox"

    inside your <a href code

    also add: rel="lightbox[group]"

    if you want to group a slide show

    Had exactly the same problem, auto lightbox doesnt work. jperez23's suggestion works perfectly.

    On the otherhand I have this plugin installed on a different blog and auto lightbox works fine.

    very strange.

    On a clean install, this plugin isn't working.

    I can see that the JavaScript is load in the header, and I also manually added the rel="lightbox" attribute, but still nothing.

    It was working with my old blog...

    Can't get it to work either. What's weird is that it was working about 2 weeks ago and I didn't install any new plugins. It just stopped working one day. Can anybody help, here' an article that's suppose to use lightbox but doesn't pop up at all:

    Not sure if you folks saw the same issue, but it's not working for me in 2.7.1. Previously was fine in 2.7.0 though.

    Just to add a bit more information here, I can see why Lightbox isn't working. It is not adding rel="lightbox" to the link any more. Any ideas?

    Actually, unless I'm mistaken the culprit in my case is the Cleaner Gallery plugin. On a page where there's no gallery the rel="" tag is inserted fine.
