Gallery Clicking Issue

    When I go to click on any image posted within a gallery, it opens up full screen and black, which looks beautiful. But when I close out of that image or am done scrolling through images in that gallery, I’m automatically brought back to the very top of the page. It seems like a glitch.

    Any way to fix this so that when I close out of the gallery the page remains at the spot that I was scrolling at?

    The blog I need help with is: redsoxstrong.wordpress.com

    Hi bjweiss22,

    Can you please post the URL of the page you are referring to? Is this on a desktop view?

    Thanks,
    Chandra

    Sure, here is the link:

    redsoxstrong.wordpress.com

    And yes, this is on desktop view. Thanks, Chandra!

    This is a WP.com built-in gallery and lightbox. I have queued this to the Theme Team as they know better.

    This behaviour seems specific to Safari and Chrome – in Firefox it doesn’t occur.

    I’ll report it to our developers to have them take a look.

    For me it occurs on all three browsers. Thanks for looking into this!

    There appears to be something specific to this theme causing the effect, as I just tested with several other themes and it doesn’t happen. We’ll investigate further.

    I’ve reported this to our developers but I don’t have an ETA on when I might have an update. We triage all issues and handle the most urgent ones first.
