Support » Plugin: Shadowbox JS » Shadowbox conflict with Nextgen Gallery

  • Hi.
    I’ve been having big problems on my site caused by Nextgen Gallery – and apparently Shadowbox. After updating Nextgen, it started throwing in small thumbnails of all my galleries in my section widget and Banners (feature with Pagelines) while disabling shadowbox – where I had videos sat to pop up with shadowbox when clicked. For the record – the places it throws in these thumbnails, are place I’ve never had or gonna have pictures – beside them in the html video. Nothing has seemed to work and after troubleshooting with Nextgen and Pagelines, a member of the Pagelines staff seemed to have find a confilct between Nextgen Gallery and Shadowbox.

    This is the page with the issue in section widget (only the two videos “The Drop” and “Magt” were supposed to be there and pop up with shadowbox as it used to – as well as the Player which is in the Primary Sidebar (the Player acts normal):

    This is where it completely messes up my Banner sections, which also used to be videos popping up with shadowbox when clicked.

    The html I’ve used in my Banner section (as well as section widget), used to work.
    When I remove [album] in the code, all the mysterious thumbnails disappear, but then the videos will not show up on my site in a Shadowbox, but instead go directly to Vimeo.

    This is the html in my Banner section (which used to work):
    <img src=”” />.

    I really hope this can be fixed.

  • No one knows? Does anybody know how to write an html code, where I use a picture as link – and when clicked – the video pops up in a shadowbox? As the one above used to do.
    If I remove [album] (which seem to cause the problem with the thumbnails), then it goes straight to Vimeo instead of opening in a shadowbox.
    Please, any help would be highly appreciated…

    What’s the point of a support forum if there’s never gonna be an answer.
