[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Running NGG with Shadowbox – Images will open twice

  • Hey there!
    I’ve got the problem using NGG with Shadowbox JS.
    If I use any NGG effect (thickbox etc.) and at the same time Shadowbox for the whole page, any image will open in JS twice, if I click on it. Once by NGG effect and once by Shadowbox JS…

    Is it possible to use Shadowbox with NGG somehow? At the moment, I’ve got the ngg-effect deactivated and Shadowbox works fine with the ngg-gallery, but it doesn’t work with the sidebar widget?

    Anyone with a solution?

  • same here with lightbox 2 for posts and NGG on sidebar …

    it seems NGG can’t proccess your post pics backward. so we have a problem unless somebody finds a solution. we would have to change all post pictures to be set up with NGG and turn off other JS afterwards. then it would work, but to be honest: I wouldn’t like to make all pictures chained on NGG. What if NGG support stops. Changing all 200 posts back? No … there MUST be another solution …

    Good to see someone else having the same issues I did.

    The way I solved it was simply by enabling Thickbox for NextGen Gallery slideshows (Gallery >> Options >> Effects.

    Both now work fine. Admittedly, we didn’t resolve the Lightbox issue, but the .js craziness was getting way out of hand. Thickbox seems to have a much more compatible footprint.

    Another way to handle this is noted in this post:

    Just set the automation for Shadowbox to “off” here:
    Settings>Shadowbox>Automation>images – OFF

    Hope this helps…
