Lightbox not working at all?? Just loads the picture? Why is lightbox not working? How do I fix it?
Can we take a look at your site to see what is happening first hand? There could be any number of reasons why the lightbox wouldn’t work but we’ll need to take a look in order to narrow it down and offer some possible solutions.
The lightbox script doesn’t connect the lightbox to your images because the links contain a weird php parameter at the end. Eg here: http://joshrichman.net/client/springactive-inc/ the first image link is http://i0.wp.com/joshrichman.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/SpringActive-2011d.jpg?fit=240%2C9999 and the script doesn’t recognize this link as an image because of the ?fit=240%2C9999 extension after .jpg.
Please remove this extension from the image link and the lightbox will work.
Um that exstention wasn’t added by me? I don’t know how to remove it.. Could jetpack plugin have added that to the end of images? I need further help to resolve this..
The culprit is Jetpacks Photon. Disabled Photon, light box working properly now.
