  • Hi there,

    I think I’ve encountered the same problem. The (a tags surrounding) images get correctly added the necessary rel value but no lightbox pops open. From the js Console I see a jQuery error like “unrecognized expression: a[rel= lightbox[post-1234]]”.

    Googling a bit took me here:

    I’ve solved by modifying plugin code (file lightbox-plus/class/filters.class.php) to generate rel values as


    This happens in a bunch of lines like this (173):

    if (!$e->parent()->rel) { $e->parent()->rel = 'lightbox\\['.$postGroupID.$unq_id.'\\]'; }

    This worked for me, I hope it may help someone else.


    Thanks, Rash – unfortunately (or fortunately) that didn’t help me. Upon further investigation I discovered that my problem was caused by deleting a user. Restored the backup and upgraded to WP 3.8 – all is fine.

    My apologies to Dan Zappone for erroneously blaming the plugin.
