Home Forums CSS jQuery, Simple Lightbox, & WordPress Re: jQuery, Simple Lightbox, & WordPress


The plugin should reference the copy of jQuery inculded with WordPress so is your WordPress install up to date? (3.4.1)

If updating wordpress doesn’t fix it then the plugin isn’t really authored very well – you shouldn’t need to change anything to make it work. If you still want to use this plugin you can deregiser the included version of jQuery and register the most recent version (or you could link to Google’s CDN) but this could cause other plugins or theme functions to fail.

Maybe try a different lightbox plugin! Colorbox is quite good if you only want to have images in the lightbox.

If you want other content such as iframes or inline to display in the lightbox you are probably best adding it yourself via your theme functions file.
