[Plugin: Lightbox 2] v2.7 still not working in IE7

  • yeah it doesnt work great at all in IE……

    I wouldn’t care but as much as people deny it IE is still the most used browser.

    I use FF but my visitors probably do not.

    to me, in IE, does not overlay flash banners and does not display title, well, it displays title always as “null”

    Read the updated FAQ included in 2.7.4. Not sure why 2.7.4 is not shown as the current download….


    SHort answer: the problem is neither LB nor IE. A visit to my site confirms that, as I have always checked in both IE6 and 7….

    I’m using 2.7.5 and the bottom caption/close/prev/next images don’t show up at all in IE7.

    i have this exact same problem.. i just bought a brand new Dell laptop 7/2008 running vista home premium.. and on FF works great… but on my IE it dim the page.. but then open the image onto a new page.. just like w/o the plugin install.. all my other computers run on win XP and doesn’t have this problem…. i went onto the plug-in homepage http://stimuli.ca/lightbox/ to test it out as well.. same problem… i guess it has something to do with the browser setting? i hope someone would know how to solve this problem…

    i found something else too..
    if you go to my website http://3down7up.com and when you click on any image it would open a new page.. but when you go to the photos section http://www.3down7up.com/photo-albums/allan-hangs-engagement-ii/# and click on the image.. it worked.. but not properly.. it pop up another window showing the same image.. please help look into this.. thanks!!!

    i found the fix from here http://www.huddletogether.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=600

    First put the following code on top of the lightbox.js:
    var IE = document.all?true:false;

    function GiveFalse() {
    if(IE) {
    event.returnValue = false;
    return false;

    Now search for the following line:
    anchor.onclick = function () {myLightbox.start(this); return false;}

    and change it to:
    anchor.onclick = function () {myLightbox.start(this); GiveFalse();return false;}

    Iยดm experiencing the same problem. Tried all the above mods but no cigar… here’s a text site, please somebody try it on IE 6:

    Could some css be preventing it to working right?
    here the css effecting images in the post:

    .entry{ margin-bottom:8px; border-top:1px dotted #999999;min-height:160px;}
    .entry img {float:left;margin:0 10px 4px 0;border: 1px solid #cccccc; height:140px; width:140px; overflow:hidden;
    .entry p{padding-top:6px; width:520px;height:160px;

    I stand perplexed… ๐Ÿ™

    Ok… I solved it! It was just a collision between mootools and lightbox. Since I was using a mod of the “Massive News” theme, which had a call to scripts involving motools, I just commented the 3 calls to these scripts, and voila! the problem dissapeared…
    This is what I commmented, inn the header.php:

    <script src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/scripts/mootools.v1.11.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <script src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/scripts/jd.gallery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <script src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/scripts/jd.gallery.transitions.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
