Support » Plugins » [Plugin: Magic Gallery] images open in a blank page instead of lightbox

  • Hi from Vienna!

    I’m using Magic Gallery Version 2.0 on WP 3.1 (may this is causing the troubles).
    It works fine displaying the thumbs, but when I click an image it opens in a blank page, like leaving my theme or like target=”_parent”

    any idea about this issue?

    Thanks and greetings from vienna

    PS: late but just noticed, that my Featured Content Gallery slider on the startpage of my site is not working anymore since magic gallery is installed, so I disabled magic gallery for now.
    Any idea how to solve this interference?

  • Hi there mmtomm!

    I’ve checked the source on your website, it’s conflicting with some other scripts you are using.. You should disable one of them i guess.

    Hi Gerben,

    yes I’m affraid so, but thank you for looking!
    You think it is a lot of complicated coding to use Pikachoose at the startpage instead of Featured Content Gallery but getting the images from the userdefined field of the posts
    OK, when I write this it seems tooo complicated already 🙂

    But: is it possible to use on one page lightbox and on another pikachoose?

    Thank you very much!

    Hi mmtomm,

    You could open up gallery.php and remove the lines 91-136.
    This will stop the loading of scripts of my gallery.

    Then in your header.php (in the theme), add something like this:

    <?php if (is_home()) {
    echo 'links to scripts and styles of pikachoose here';

    More about the WordPress function is_home can be found here:

    Hi there,

    You could try this, I’m not sure if it will work but you can try it out:

    <?php if (is_home()) {
        wp_register_style( 'pikachoosestyle', ''.WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/magic-gallery/css/styles.css', null, null);
        wp_enqueue_style( 'pikachoosestyle');
        wp_register_style( 'jquerylightboxstyle', ''.WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/magic-gallery/css/jquery.lightbox-0.5.css', null, null);
        wp_enqueue_style( 'jquerylightboxstyle');
        wp_register_script( 'jquery', ''.WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/magic-gallery/js/jquery.js', null, null);
        wp_register_script( 'pikachoose', ''.WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/magic-gallery/js/jquery.pikachoose.full.js', null, null);
        wp_register_script( 'jcarousel', ''.WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/magic-gallery/js/jquery.jcarousel.min.js', null, null);
    	wp_register_script( 'jquerylightbox', ''.WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/magic-gallery/js/jquery.lightbox-0.5.js', null, null);

    Good luck, I hope I was of assistance!

    🙂 good luck is good 🙂

    question: it is not possible to add such options in the post itself, isn’t it?

    like instead of saying:
    [gallery id="1"]
    to say:
    [gallery id="1" album_type="pikachoose"]

    To summarize your above tipps (because I’m a non coder)

    1. removing the lines 91-136 in gallery.php
    2. put one of the options of your last post in the appropriate php-file i.e. `<?php if (is_home()) {

    wp_register_style( ‘pikachoosestyle’, ”.WP_PLUGIN_URL.’/magic-gallery/css/styles.css’, null, null);
    wp_enqueue_style( ‘pikachoosestyle’);
    wp_register_script( ‘pikachoose’, ”.WP_PLUGIN_URL.’/magic-gallery/js/jquery.pikachoose.full.js’, null, null);

    sorry to bother you

    At the moment it isn’t supported like that indeed, and I don’t think I will make support for that, sorry 🙂

    I would suggest to you just to copy the code I sent you. This makes sure the widget will work too.

    Hi there mmtomm, did you solve the problem?


    I solved it by disabling featured content gallery and adding dynamic content gallery with jquery.
    Now they work both


    Ah, yeah i’m figuring it will conflict sometimes with other plugins also trying to use jquery or using a different version of jquery.. Nothing I can do about that I’m afraid 🙂

    Glad to hear you solved it!

    I really hope you can help, I am having trouble getting the lightbox to work when I have Pikachoose selected.

    The lightbox does not open and when I click on the larger image it just jumps to the top of the page?

    Any ideas?

    Many Thanks

    Hi mumford. The lightbox is not supported inside Pikachoose. You can choose either pikachoose, or a lightbox. In the new 3.0 version there will be an option to do this, check out for more info.
