  • Hi!
    I don’t really see what the problem is. Your pics seem to be displaying just fine in Thickbox when clicked on.

    Usually you have to chose between a thumbnail viewer and a gallery with built in thumbnail viewer. I’ve tried to use both and it never works out. Can you not put descriptions on the images in Nextgen?

    Hi, Having a similar issue as meadpointofview.

    When images/thumbs are clicked to be viewed larger, it’s showing two versions of the gallery overlayed. No descriptions involved though.

    Any suggestions are welcomed.


    @masubi: Could you please share a link to your site?

    I turned ThickBox back on so people can see what is going on. Anyone able to provide some insight?

    Hi Meadpointofview,

    I can see the issue as described, unsure what it is though.

    I would try tweaking the settings in a systematic order, refreshing the page and see if anything changes. Try using colorbox or one of the other effects to see if it stays the same. Also try in different browsers as the more information the better.

    Hi. The problem is that you have two different lightbox interfaces running at the same time. It could be because your theme already includes lightbox functionality and you have a plugin as well, or two different plugins at the same time.

    Hi Marventus,

    Curious how you found this, was it just through observation/experience or something like Firebug?

    I ask as I want to improve my problem solving of web issues.




    I looked at your source code (Ctrl+U or Right click–>View Source) and found calls to the Next Gen Gallery and Thickbox slideshows. The first slideshow comes from that plugin, but the second one could be coming from a plugin or a theme.


    Hi Marventus – I removed the additional plug-ins even though they were not active and I still have the problem.
    It is not a compatibility issue with additional plugins.

    You are still loading two gallery / slideshow interfaces: your theme, Origin, is loading Fancybox 1.3.4, and you are also running Next Gen Gallery, which uses Shutter by Andrew Sutherland.
    To fix the issue, you can either disable the plugin or edit your theme to remove Fancybox support. To do the latter, look in your theme folder for the file js/footer-scripts.js and delete this chunk:

    /* Fancybox */
    	jqu( "a[href$='.jpg'], a[href$='.jpeg'], a[href$='.png'], a[href$='.gif']" ).attr( 'rel', 'lightbox' );
    	jqu( "a[rel^='lightbox']" ).fancybox( { titleShow: false, overlayOpacity: .8, overlayColor: '#000' } );

    While you are at it, you might also want to delete:

    /* <![CDATA[ */

    as well as:

    /* ]]> */

    CDATA tags are not needed when calling JS scripts externally.

    Thank you Marventus!

    I commented out the Fancybox code and that did the trick!

    Cool! Don’t forget to mark the thread as resolved whenever you can.
