WP Lightbox 2 FAQ Post your Queries!

Question: Why doesn’t plugin is working for me?
Answers: Check the following reasons:
You have changed the plugin folder’s name to something other than “wp-lightbox-2″.

The problem is with your WordPress theme, mangling image display properties. Use another theme, that doesn’t interfere with posted images.

You have other plugins that conflict with Lightbox

Disable your other plugins and see if that helps. If it does, re-enable each plugin, one at a time to see which one is causing the conflict.

Question: It doesn’t work properly in Browser X (Explorer 6, 7, etc)?

Answer: Yes it does. The problem is with your WordPress theme, mangling image display properties. Use another theme, or change your theme’s Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

Question:How to Use the plugin if not enabled as default ?

Answer:
By default the option “Auto-lightbox image links” is enabled, means all the images in your website will have overlay color-box impact.

You can also add a rel=”lightbox” attribute to any link tag to activate the lightbox. For example:

<a title="my caption" href="images/image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox">image #1</a>

If you have a set of related images that you would like to group, simply include a group name in the rel attribute. For example:

<a href="images/image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #1</a>
<a href="images/image-2.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #2</a>
<a href="images/image-3.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #3</a>

To disable lightboxing of an image link, just set any other rel-attribute: rel=”nobox”.
