  • Resolved graphicbear


    I have a page full of images (an image gallery) and want to click and have each image enlarge and move to the previous/next image in the series. My problem is that it shows 2 of each image in the series, so the image pops up and shows image #(1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4…). This is the same for jpg images and external content.

    I’ve tried entering in as shown below: (links are examples)
    image #1
    image #2
    image #3

    What do you think is causing multiple copies of every image to be shown in the lightbox slideshow?

  • The code is like this:

    <a href="images/image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #1</a>
    <a href="images/image-2.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #2</a>
    <a href="images/image-3.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #3</a>

    I have exactly the same problem 🙁

    I’m not sure if this might help:

    I tried Easy FancyBox and it had the same problem. I thought it was a theme conflict, but it’s actually because I have captions for each image.

    I have a caption for each image, and then inserted it into the page. WordPress puts a [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="133"] [/caption] tag around the image link when there’s a caption. However, the plugin seems to automatically show the caption, even without these tags. The Solution: remove these WordPress [caption] tags and the duplicate slide problem disappears. Well, that worked for me anyway.. and I kept with Easy FancyBox, so I’m assuming this would fix Lightbox Plus, but not sure.

    I hope this was of help to someone. I know it annoyed me for a while.

    Thanks for the Easy FancyBox tip. I’ve been struggling for hours trying to figure out why I was getting duplicate images with Lightbox Plus ColorBox (latest version installed today).

    Got rid of it and Easy FancyBox did the job!
