  • Same problem here. Update to 2.0RC3 seems to cause a failure.

    @junphotostudio: This is likely due to the origin policy of the site. If your site’s URL is, then you need to make sure it’s set as this in WordPress’ admin. It appears that this is set as (i.e. no www subdomain) for your WP site.

    Aligning this setting in WP will allow AJAX to properly work on your site for SLB and any other plugin that uses it.

    @cooperanet: As different server/site configurations can result in similar issues, please post a link that exhibits the issue you’re experiencing so that it can be properly evaluated.

    Thank you for your response.

    This is the URL where Simple Lightbox doesn’t seem to work anymore after upgrade:

    @cooperanet: The images on that page appear to be loading properly in SLB when I view it. What OS/browser are you using? Also, make sure to clear your browser’s cache and refresh the page after updating SLB to make sure you’re loading the latest code.

    Hi Archetyped,

    You are awesome! Yes, I changed the wordpress admin to, then everything is back to life.

    Thank you very much!

    @archetyped : in my case, it doesn’t work with Chrome, Opera, Safari and IE. But works fine in Firefox.



    In Firefox the latest version doesn’t work as well. I think you’re being tricked because Firefox shows a single image like it’s in a lightbox, with a dark grey background.

    @eaglejohn: cooperanet’s site is also working fine for me in Firefox. I’m pretty sure I’m not being tricked by my own plugin 🙂

    If you have a specific URL that exhibits an issue in Firefox, please post it so it can be properly evaluated. Thanks.

    @cooperanet: SLB’s lightbox is actually loading in other browsers such as Chrome, but there appears to be a CSS conflict with your site’s theme causing the lightbox to remain hidden. One way to narrow down the conflict is to temporarily switch to a default WP theme (e.g. TwentyTwelve) and test the same page you posted in Chrome to see if SLB works then (be sure to clear your browser’s cache and refresh).

    If SLB works with the default theme without issue then we can investigate where the conflict with your theme is.

    If SLB still does not display, then it may be the result of a conflict with another plugin. If you provide a list of the plugins currently activated on the site so that they can be evaluated for conflicts.
