Support » Fixing WordPress » Stop image showing under lightbox slideshow

  • Resolved berchman


    When viewing a gallery on a page I see thumbnails of all the images.
    If I click on an image, that image opens AND then a lightbox slideshow comes up on top of the image.

    When I close the lightbox slideshow I want to go back to the thumbnails.

    Instead the lightbox slideshow closes and then I’m shown a single image showing in lightbox (the original one I clicked on) and I have to click AGAIN to dismiss it.

    I want to make the single still image disappear and never display.
    I only want the lightbox slideshow to display.

    In the shortcode it says,

    [gallery link=”file” ids=”547,548,…..

    I tried changing link=”file” to link=”#” but then get the error:
    Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist.

    I’ve checked here:
    and here:

    You can see it in action here:

    Anyone know of a way to stop the underlying image from displaying?
    (other than a CSS hack?)

    Let me know if you have any questions.

  • I found not the perfect solution, but something that works.

    I added a CSS class to override the overlay and image displayed under the slideshow image.

    div.pp_overlay {
    	display: none !important;
    div.pp_pic_holder {
    	display: none !important;

    Hope this helps someone.
