I’ve found a couple of posts here on how to disable the lightbox feature for images in the Enfold theme – I’ve commented out the two lines in the avia.js file (lines 53 & 54) and actually commented out the entire Lightbox activation function (at line 450). I cleared the site’s cache as well as the local cache and the lightbox is still showing. Is there another update that I need to make i order to turn this off?
Just in case, make sure any changes you are making to the avia.js file are on the live server and not local. Its an often overlooked step to check.
Thanks, Devin – I figured out that commenting out the code was actually disabling the lightbox – what I hadn’t realized was that when we insert an image into a page using the Add Media button that by default the image is created as a link to the image. I’ve looked for a way to change this so the default is that the image links to nothing but i’m not finding that setting. Any advise would be awesome.
Actually – found a hack for this. I added the following to the end of the functions-enfold.php file:
This sets the default option to None when inserting media – I dislike making changes to the settings file as they get wiped out when the theme is updated. I had to make another hack like this to move the Search icon to the Utility Menu – would be an awesome add if the media default could be in the theme settings.
