Lightbox not working

    Hi, Lightbox is not working for me. Firstly, the index image for the video post does not include the “View Video” text. Secondly, when I click on the index image, it takes me to the blog post, not to Lightbox. I’ve looked through all the previous questions about Lightbox on this forum, but none address my problem, unfortunately.

    I have two videos posts up on my blog and both are using the “Video” post format.

    My blog is here: http://www.WanderingI.org/blog.

    Thanks!
    Khalid

    The blog I need help with is wanderingi.org.

    Hi Khalid,

    Did you make sure to mark your post as a Video post? Just like you did with the gallery, you need to indicate that your post is a Video post before the lightbox feature will work.

    Yes, I definitely marked the posts as video posts. You can confirm this by going to my blog page http://www.WanderingI.org/blog and hovering over the index image for the blog post titled “Swiss Waterfall” (it’s the very first one at the top). You’ll see that the image does a “zoom in” effect. I’ve noticed that this zooming in effect only happens on the index images of Gallery and Video posts.

    Additionally, if you go to that blog post’s page, it should be obvious based on the layout that it is a video post: https://wanderingi.org/2018/04/29/swiss-waterfall/

    Thanks,
    Khalid

    Hi Khalid,

    As I mentioned in that other thread, this was due to the Videopress posts not being detected for the lightbox. Those posts will be better of as standard posts for now until we can get a fix out.

    I’ll leave this post open until we can get a fix out.
