Add lightbox effect to manually added images

Recommended Posts


Hello people, I have been working on this site: http://mostrespectedagents.net/ and added few images for agent profiles manually.


I was looking to use a plugin to get the lightbox functionality for thumbs > bigger images. Therefore, I installed 'Simple Lightbox' but it didn't work. Which is most likely because of clashing with DMS. Is it correct?


Hence, I have used html/css (I have pasted below) and got the result but with a huge issue. If you kindly notice at the bottom of the site, there is a huge white space right below the footer/copyright module.


Any suggestion on how to achieve the desired result without either of the issues?


Any help is appreciated.







<a class="thumbnail" href="#thumb"><img src="http://mostrespectedagents.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/TW-Optimus-Team-Photo-Tenga-Helen.jpg" width="200px" align="left"><span><img src="http://mostrespectedagents.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/TW-Optimus-Team-Photo-Tenga-Helen.jpg" /></span></a><span style="font-size: 150%; font-weight: bold;">Tenga Schieber<br>Team Realty of Atlanta</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 110%; font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.teamrealtyofatlanta.com">www.teamrealtyofatlanta.com</a></span>


position: relative;
z-index: 0;

background-color: transparent;
z-index: 5;

.thumbnail span{ /*CSS for enlarged image*/
position: absolute;
background-color: black;
padding: 1px;
left: -700px;  
border: 1px dashed gray;
visibility: hidden;
color: black;
text-decoration: none;

.thumbnail span img{ /*CSS for enlarged image*/
border-width: 0;
padding: 1px;

.thumbnail:hover span{ /*CSS for enlarged image on hover*/
visibility: visible;
  top: 0;
right: 0;
 /*position where enlarged image should offset horizontally */

I am not seeing any issue in regards to space at the bottom of your site, has this been resolved ?


Also, if you only have space after using the plugin/HTML, then the issue is with the plugin or you code. Which isn't something we can assist you with.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.

      Hey there,
      I am working on BentleyRolling.com. I used grams on MoonbodySoul.com and all the images are cropped to a square, whether they are square or 4:5 when posted on instagram, they still get cropped to a square. This looks way better than some being squares and some being 4:5. Did something change since I designed MoonBodySoul.com with Platform5? Can you help me crop all images to a square on BentleyRolling.com 
      All the best,
