Support » Plugin: WP jQuery Lightbox » Using WP jQuery Lightbox with Jetpack's Mosaic Galleries

  • Thank you for the great plugin!
    I have found that WP jQuery Lightbox was the plugin best suited for my needs. Simple and efficient. I had tried dozens of lightboxes before this one.

    However, I ran into a problem when trying to use Mosaic Galleries from the Jetpack plugin. The lightbox continues working, but the titles no longer appear in the lightbox. This *may* be due to the fact that Mosaic galleries serve the images from wordpress’ CDN (content delivery network) and not from the site itself. The same problem arises when using Jetpack’s Photon. In other words, I guess that Jetpack takes precedence in processing the images over the WP jQuery Lightbox plugin.

    A related problem is that when using Jetpack’s Mosaic, the grouping feature of WP jQuery Lightbox does not seem to work. The problem had been brought up by another user here:

    From what I’ve been reading, it seems that the problem I’m having with the titles is not simple to solve. I am absolutely no expert in WP or PHP so my input in this is somewhat limited. I only have a basic knowledge in programming.

    In the meantime, a temporary (somewhat ugly) solution was for me to disable tiled mosaics in Jetpack and use a third party mosaic gallery plugin called “Tiled Galleries Carousel Without Jetpack”. I’m assuming other third party tiled gallery plugins may work as well.

    Should anyone have any kind of insight on this matter, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
