I updated to WordPress 3.1 this morning and now my lightboxes are not working for pictures or video. Any fix for this?February 24, 2011 at 7:24 am #41009
Please update prettyphoto to version 3.0.1 – you can download the update here: http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/
Just replace the prettyphoto files located under js/prettyphoto with the new ones. WP 3.1 comes with a new jquery version (1.4.4) and prettyphoto 2.5 isn’t compatible with it :)February 24, 2011 at 3:37 pm #41010
Thanks Dude. That worked for me on another site/theme I was having this issue with, but didn’t work with Avisio. Another other thoughts?February 24, 2011 at 3:52 pm #41011
Please try to clear your cache or try to replace the files in js/prettyphoto one by one. Maybe one or more files weren’t replaced….February 24, 2011 at 3:55 pm #41012
I came back to edit but you were too quick. :)
It was my goof. I forgot to replace one of the files. We’re good now. Thanks dude!February 24, 2011 at 4:03 pm #41013February 24, 2011 at 4:26 pm #41014
[strike] Hey there. I’m having the same problem but, unfortunately, this fix isn’t working for me.
I’ve done a full delete and re-copy of the new PrettyPhoto files but that’s not done the trick. Nor has clearing my cache.[/strike]
A knock-on effect of updating the PrettyPhoto folder seems to be that my website background has now dropped out — even though the Custom Background section of wordpress showing it still in full effect.
Any thoughts, help, suggestions would be much appreciated.
EDIT — PrettyPhoto fix must have had a delay or something as it now works. Background still missing.February 24, 2011 at 8:34 pm #41015
I updated WP to 3.1, replaced the prettyphoto content with the content from prettyPhoto_compressed_3.0.1 fo fix the lightbox problem and now neither slider nor any jQuery works.
See firebug error at http://www.kuenstler.co.at
The whole site is in wrecks now.
Any fix for that?

Thanks Dude! The “PrettyPhoto” file update totally did the trick!

@aostheimer: I get a 404 – not found error – when I check for prettyphoto js file or css file. Please upload the files again (maybe replace them one by one and not the whole prettyphoto folder)February 25, 2011 at 7:28 am #41018February 25, 2011 at 9:29 am #41019
In custom.js replace:
"theme": theme_selected /* light_rounded / dark_rounded / light_square / dark_square */ });
"theme": theme_selected, /* light_rounded / dark_rounded / light_square / dark_square */
overlay_gallery: false /* If set to true, a gallery will overlay the fullscreen image on mouse over */
});February 25, 2011 at 9:58 am #41020
@Dude: thanks. The solution was: your directory was named “prettyPhoto” but prettyPhoto 3.0.1 names the folder “prettyphoto”.
This is upper-lower-case terror…February 25, 2011 at 10:01 am #41021February 25, 2011 at 10:10 am #41022February 25, 2011 at 11:55 am #41023February 25, 2011 at 4:56 pm #41024
I updated wordpress to 3.1 and I’m having a problem with showing a youtube video in lightbox. All images are opening fine in lightbox but youtube for some reason keeps automatically redirecting to the youtube site for view the video. I want the video to show in lightbox only. I did the prettyphoto update but didn’t help my issue. Any thoughts on this?February 26, 2011 at 10:53 am #41025
I Installed the plugin Prettyphoto but get the following error “The plugin has no valid header”.
anyone familiar with this problem
FrankFebruary 26, 2011 at 11:01 am #41026
Guy’s I solved the problem…..
First installed the old version of prettyphoto (1.6).
Second replace the files with the new ones (3.1).
FrankFebruary 26, 2011 at 4:03 pm #41027
Thanks to you all, that advice fixed my Light-Box as well, now if only we could fix the bad links and we would be GoldenMarch 3, 2011 at 7:41 pm #41028
I have installed the pretty photo plug in but i have the same problem.
Any helpMarch 4, 2011 at 8:32 am #41029
as far as I can see you use a third party premium theme at the moment….(which we can’t support here).March 9, 2011 at 6:28 am #41030
I made the necessary updates to PrettyPhotos but the page still would not load the full size pix. Any luck Dude?
Here is one of the pages I am working on. The site is till under construction. so shhhhhMarch 9, 2011 at 2:57 pm #41031
as far as I can see you’re using the old version: http://missasianamerica.org/new/wp-content/themes/cleancut-MAAP/js/prettyPhoto/js/jquery.prettyPhoto.js?ver=3.1
Maybe try to replace the files one by one….March 20, 2011 at 11:09 pm #41032
thanks for looking into it. i removed all the js files and re-uploaded it one at a time, but my website still doesnt work http://missasianamerica.org/new/miss-asian-america-galleries/25th/activities-2010-2011/March 21, 2011 at 6:24 am #41033
1. I too wanted to remove the gallery that shows up in the pop-up lightbox (why does it hover on the photo itself?) and I tried what you said a few questions up of adding the “overlay_gallery: false…” to the custom.js but this did not work. Any suggestions?
2. How do I choose between the various lightbox skins?
Thanks in advance.March 21, 2011 at 7:30 am #41034
@webbietl – the js file didn’t change (still old version). Maybe you’re using any caching plugins? Maybe it’s a file permission problem?
1) Can you post a link to your website please – I hope I can find the problem
2) Open up custom.js and search for: “light_square” – you can replace the skin by changing it to “light_rounded” or “dark_rounded” or “light_square” or “dark_square”March 21, 2011 at 3:38 pm #41035March 21, 2011 at 3:52 pm #41036
as far as I can see you’re using the old version: http://kiskerproductions.com/wordpress/wp-content/themes/avisio/js/prettyPhoto/js/jquery.prettyPhoto.js
