Lightbox integration doesn't work..at all
Photos just pop up in an html window no matter what I do.
Any suggestions? Lightbox integration was my main reason for 'upgrading'
Nevermind. I figured it out.... I think.
The width and height triggers work bass ackwards in Photopost Admin.
Good thing my brain works backwards,
They do not work backwards that I am aware of.
Those should be the max trigger amounts and as long as the image is under those triggers it uses the lightbox if the image is over those sizes it will use the popupwindow.
Exactly what is light boxes and what is it suppose to do. I would started new thread but since jdelasko found the problem will ask here. :)
Yeah, I figured that out. At first I assumed that anything OVER the trigger points would use lightbox. Makes sense though. Like I said, sometimes my brain works backwards. I set the trigger points above the max picture size so all large photos are displayed using lightbox.
Everything works fine now as you can see: http://www.majorleaguetalk.com/photo...at=501&page=11
Glad you guys included lightbox in this upgrade. I like it!
Click on a thumbnail, then when you click on the photo to display a larger version it will pop up in the Lightbox window.
I am having no luck getting mine to work as you have on that site you gave link to.
I must have soemthing set wrong. :)
Thanks for explaining what and how it works. :)
My background doesnt get dark when a picture is loaded in what I think is using lightbox.
My gallery is HERE
iloco you are not using the bigpopup window. To use lightbox you need to have bigpopup set to yes and lightbox set to yes. Basically if a file is under the lighbox thresholds lightbox is used and if it is over then the photopost bigpopup window is shown.
You have everything off and large images are being shown on your page.
I ahve now turned on for big popup window to work and set to yes.
Same for lightbox. I ahve image size set as width 800 and height at 600.
I am still not getting it to work as on the site above.
I be glad to send you admin rights if you want to look at my settings. :)
Duh I got it and like above was thinking backwards. Upped my width and height and now its working.
Not a problem buddy
I think I have the same issue.:rolleyes:
I use 900 900
Chuck here is a comment from one my members about Lightbox.
we have no control over the lightbox code. Any support or discussion on its features would need to be discussed on their site. We simply include there publically distributed code.
I see. Thanks Chuck I found a way around saving the pic.
Just right clcik on the pic and save as a web page complete and once saved to desktop, open it and then right clcik and save as before using lightbox. :)
Works the Lightbox with all photo's or must I turn on the Lightbox in the upload options?
I mean works it only with photo's with are uploading with the setting Lightbox on in the upload options?
Make sure that in photopost admin, show photo options, that you have 'use anti leeching code' set to no. I'm not sure if this variable effects lightbox but it's worth a look.
yes should affect anything on the page I beleive yes.
Here's the settings I use:
Upload photo options
Max allowable image width in pixels = 1024
Max allowable image height in pixels = 768
Trigger medium graphic height and width = 450
Save and display medium and large images? = yes
If photo upload width or height exceeds maximums, resize upload down to max dimensions? = yes
Show photo options
Use popup window for BIG images? = yes
Use lightbox integration? = yes
Width to trigger lightbox integration (if enabled)? = 1050
Height to trigger lightbox integration (if enabled)? = 1050
I set the medium trigger to 450 so that the displayed photo is fairly small and fits on the page without users having to scroll to see all of it (on most computers)
I set the lightbox triggers above what I know will be the largest photo size (1024 x 768) so I know that all large photos will be displayed using lightbox.
Here's a test photo for you to see: http://www.majorleaguetalk.com/photo...to=740&cat=501
Note to Chuck: In admin show photo options, the option 'width/height to trigger lightbox integration' is misleading. It should be reworded in future releases. These are actually points, above which, lightbox integration is disabled, NOT triggered.
Rather than go through a detailed explanation I will just say that lightbox is expecting to find it's own images in this directrory but the directory probably does not exist. This is why your lightbox window does not have the 'close' button graphic. The easiest fix is to creat the directory if it does not exist and upload the contents of the image directory that came with photopost.
I know this is probably not the best fix, but its the easiest that I can tell.
