Support » Plugins and Hacks » [Plugin: Shadowbox JS] navigation controls not showing

  • Hello,
    I am using shadowbox js on a category archive page to open posts within shadobox. Within my loop, I have rel=”shadowbox” and it is working but the plugin is not recognizing the collection of shadow box links as a gallery type page. I can get the navigation links to show by changing the css but clicking them does nothing. In addition, when I enable smart loading, Shadowbox JS is not loaded on this page even thought the rel=”shadowbox” tag is there.

    Any help will be much appreciated,

    Have you tried using rel=”shadowbox[album]” on the links? The “[album]” will allow Shadowbox to group the links together.

    KeesdeBruin is correct, you will need to specify an “album” in order to group them.

    this is excellent, is there documentation of these functions?



    My Shadowbox nav controls are also not showing. I have specified an album in the link rel field, and Display Navigaton (in the Shadowbox Settings panel) is set to “true.”

    The Shadowbox plugin does recognize that I have a gallery, because I can view all the images in the gallery using the arrow keys, but I can’t see the forward, backward and close buttons.

    Is it a problem with the shadowbox css? I am using the Thesis theme, by the way.

    Here’s the link:



    er, nevermind, found the solution here:

    The PNGs were corrupted when uploading, I uploaded them again in binary mode.
