Using LightBox ColorBox with iBox

6 posts in this topic



I am using the DMS free edition to create a website.


I am trying to use secondary lightboxes to display a pop up window of another locally hosted page from an iBox. In the link section, I put in just the link for the page, and in the class section I put "lbp_secondary".


When I then click on the link, a lighbox window pops up, but displays no content. The link is showing when I hove the cursor over it, but for some reason it doesn't display in the lightbox.


It's a pretty basic website with no plugins except for lightbox, limit login attempts and simple shortcodes.


I have installed DMS version 1.1.1 and it's running on Wordpress 3.9.1


I have attached a picture of the offending iBox with the broken link.


I've tried all the suggestions in the FAQ, but no luck. Please help!


Thanks, Duncan.

I have tried to use the plugin, but it just doesn't seem to work, you will need to contact the developer of the plugin for assistance.

Thanks Danny


It seems that lightbox has conflict issues with Wordpress 3.9.


I'm not sure if that is my problem, but quite a few other people have reported errors when using 3.9


If I find a solution, I will post it here.

I've devised a solution that works, but it's a bit of a hack.


Instead of using the fields for the link and class, just put the link (with class attribute) in the text field of the ibox.


In order for everything to work though, you must add </p> after the link, or else it messes with the other lightboxes.


Here's what worked for me:


<a class="lbpModal" href="http://yourwebsite/page/">more</a></p>

This means that the Lightbox plug-in itself is not the problem, so it must be how DMS integrates the class attribute and link.


I hope that helps?

      Any idea what is wrong here?
    • DMS2 an "App Aware" theme?
      By vanessabt+
      Hi,  I am looking at bringing on a new client that we are doing a website redesign for.  Ideally I would like to use pagelines for this but we are also going to be potentially using phonegap to build a corresponding mobile app for the client and connecting it through the AppPresser core plugin to wordpress.  One of the conditions in order to do this is that the chosen theme that is installed in wordpress and that the website uses is an "app aware" theme.  Do you know if dms is an "app aware" theme?  I need to confirm this upfront because there will be no time to redevelop the site if it does not work.  We have a tight timeframe to complete the site and then phase 2 will be the app.  Please advise.  Thank you.
    • Visibility on mobile - tags or code?
      By mikeeg8+
      Is there a quick way to show/hide things on mobile and desktops please, i.e. like a shortcode or similar?
      I've used a bit of code, but wondered if that was the mode elegant way - is there something built into a media box, for example that would give me a hide on desktop toggle?
      Thank you

    • Popovers cut off screen edge.
      By respectgb+
      I'm having problems with bootstrap popovers being cut off the edge of the browser. I'm using the latest version of dms (2.2) and this problem occurs on all browsers tested. Please can you let me know how we can fix this?
