Lightbox plugins not compatible with 2.7
The conflict of plugins saga continues. Lightbox was the issue with the plugins commentluv and twitterid not functioning for comments. It was entirely my fault. I have so many plugins functioning and being tested here at the lab I don’t take the time to go through the WordPress functional plugins list to make sure all the plugins will work when upgrading. With the advent of captioning I haven’t been using the Lightbox effect to show larger images as much as I used to and I didn’t realize it wasn’t working. I especially didn’t realize it was what broke several good plugins in the process.
It turns out Lightbox plugins (none of them) were able to make the jump to 2.7 After trying about 6 of them with no luck the dial-up geek thought to do a search on lightbox wordpress 2.7 and found the shadowbox js plugin was the choice of WP lightbox users who were left in a lurch after upgrading to 2.7
Once I installed this plugin all my old posts using Lightbox were back up and running. The interface is a little different and the options to configure it from the settings panel are completely different. But it works and it doesn’t conflict with any of the other plugins.
If you have been lightboxed out since your upgrade to 2.7 then Shadowbox JS is your ticket to get back in the ring.
