Pagelines / Lightbox 2 / Lightbox Plus Compatibility Issues

Recommended Posts



I'm having compatibility issues with Pagelines and two different lightbox plugins on two different sites. Both plugins give the same results.

The plugins are from the Wordpress Repository and are:

Lightbox 2

Lightbox Plus

Both behave in exactly the same way. When you go here and click an image in the post it opens in a lightbox, but it's always at the top of the page and doesn't turn the entire surrounding area dark around the image. If a user clicks an image at the bottom of a post, they have to scroll up to see it.

You can see it happening here: http://www.modeltrainsonline.co.uk/2012/11/12/peco-n-gauge-2251-collett-060/

Scroll down and click the second image in the post.

The only add-ons to pagelines I'm using are crackbar and Latest Blog Entries both purchased from your store.

It used to be fine until I upgraded from platform pro to the new pagelines framework.

Any ideas what's going on?

Hi Justin,

Just so we can rule it out, disable all active plugins and see if this resolves the issue. If it doesn't the first thing you should do is contact the plugins author and ask them for assistance and to investigate the issue.

Alternatively, you could use this plugin, which has no issue with PageLines Framework - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jquery-colorbox/

Hi Danny,

Just tried colorbox on our recommendation but it's doing exactly the same thing.

Also deactivated all active plugins and it still did it. So in my view the issue is Pagelines. Those lightbox plugins (the first two) have worked with every other theme I've used over the past couple of years. And they worked fine with Platform Pro... but not Pagelines... so in my view there's a common denominator here...

Hi Danny.

I don't dispute it working there. Indeed it works for me on a short post.

Please can you put say 5 paragraphs of Lorem Ipsum in on your test post, then put at image in after the last paragraph.

Then view the post... scroll to the bottom and click the image there.

Does it work then? If it does, I stand corrected... :)

Many thanks

Page updated, still working as intended.

There, as to be something causing this on your site, plugin, custom code, script etc...

Ok ok... I admit defeat :) I ripped out a load of custom css... Something in there was doing it. :)

Sorted... Thanks for you help.

      Hello Pagelines,   I no longer use pagelines services. I have deactivated the automatic annual payment. But it already charged to my credit card. Since I cancelled my contract before the end, Can I request to refund?

      I am wanting to know what the status of the Pagelines Platform.
      I have noticed that there has been absolutely no updates on Platform 5 for over 8 months.
      Please tell me you haven't gone off on another tangent and going to build the next great solution
      and then leave all of us to have to completely rebuild our sites like we did for
      Pagelines, then DMS, then Pagelines Platform.
      I like what you build, but what you need to do is build one product and then make it better, rather than 
      abandoning it and building something else.
      You haven't done anything for so long that even WordPress is providing a warning.
      "Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress."
      So what is the Status. I mean if I am going to pay a monthly fee for a product, I don't want to pay for one
      that is no longer being supported. You have a great product, I'm not bashing it, I'm just wondering what 
      your next move is because I have business decisions to make for myself, and whether of not this is something
      I should stick with.

      Please be kind enough to respond.

      Thank You,

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::
      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?
