Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Why doesn’t plugin is working for me?
Answers: Check the following reasons:
You have changed the plugin folder’s name to something other than “lightbox-2″.
The problem is with your WordPress theme, mangling image display properties. Use another theme, that doesn’t interfere with posted images.
You have other plugins that conflict with Lightbox
Disable your other plugins and see if that helps. If it does, re-enable each plugin, one at a time to see which one is causing the conflict.
Question: It doesn’t work properly in Browser X (Explorer 6, 7, etc)?
Answer: Yes it does. The problem is with your WordPress theme, mangling image display properties. Use another theme, or change your theme’s Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
Question: How do I create a thumbnail gallery?
Answer: Upload images to a post (see previous question) and use WordPress’ built-in gallery shortcode:
link="file" - this is crucial! By default the gallery will link your humbnails to a page displaying your image. With
link="file" the thumbnails links directly to the image files – allowing Lightbox to function.
