Support » Plugins and Hacks » [Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Lightbox effect with Shadowbox JS

  • Is there a way to make the lightbox effect work – even if I have the Shadowbox JS plugin active?
    As it is now, I can make the lightbox work (by use of the Lightbox 2 plugin) but with both plugins active, both effects show up one on the top of another.
    Any ideas for other Nextgen addons that could fulfill our needs? Any tag I could use to
    Grateful for any tips,

    PS Needless to say, I need Shadowbox JS for other purposes (videos and QTVRs).
    AND I’ve had a look at other plugins, but they’re either not WP263 compatible or do not support eg Quicktime movs (tried Multibox, another Lightbox plugin and the Slimbox plugin.)

  • Basically I need help to find some other way to get the Lightbox effect – some plugin, a lightbox code I can use in the settings or something.

    To make things more clear:
    Shadowbox JS overruns some effects in NGG because it responds to tags like ‘shadowbox’ but also ‘lightbox’ – which are both used by the Shadowbox plugin.
    So, I’ve tried to alter the lightbox settings in NGG to eg
    ‘rel=”lightcase[%GALLERY_NAME%]”‘
    (lightcase instead of lightbox in code setting), but as long as the Shadowbox plugin is active I either get no lightbox effect (the image just opens in a new browser window) or a lightbox effect on top of a shadowbox (if a lightbox plugin is also active)
    The source code then reads
    ‘rel=”shadowbox[post-324];player=img; lightcase[acquafredda]”‘
    (in this case now lightbox effect)
    I’m on WP251, soon upgrading to 262/263 using NGG v0.99.1 and Shadowbox JS v2021 (not the newest 2032, not WP251 compatible).
    Any tips?
    Thanks

    have you tried setting the Shadowbox image automation to off?
    Settings>Shadowbox>Automation>images – OFF

    Seems to work fine. Shadowbox will still work with images with the rel=shadowbox tag.

    This seems like a pretty basic issue – Nextgen does some cool stuff, but is restrictive.

    And don’t expect much help from these forums!
