Hi, First let me say I love this plugin…so far. I want to love it more but my theme seems to have some issue with it. As they say, “It’s me not you.” I am hoping you might be able to suggest a workaround of some sort. Here is what my theme developer has said:
<blockquote cite=”Our built in slideshow tends to conflict with any of those kinds of plugins (lightboxes) , which is why we advise against them. What happens is they take the same parts of the site and try to do different things with them and that’s what breaks things.
In theory, if you were feeling adventurous, you could hand-code in a lightbox effect that only applies to the images you set it to, but you’d need to be familiar with how to add that and make sure that it doesn’t affect the parts that are already being affected with our slider…”>
Any thoughts? The theme is Raportage by GraphPaperPress my blog is http://thedigitaltrekker.com13 October 2013 at 13:50 #1039
Hi thanks, Here are two pages/post that have images. One uses the themes slide show:
The other uses just the gallery.
Is this what you need? Please note that the tweet icon in the lightbox often doesn’t appear and the lightbox show freezes.

Matt, try a two things:
1. resave plugin both settings: general and for specific lightbox script (prettyphoto)
2. if it does not help, deacitvate and delete a plugin, install it again and setup your options14 October 2013 at 10:23 #1056
Ok I reinstalled it. I think I found at least a couple of the conflicts. The social media icons are still not loading and that causes light box to hang and freeze at times. When I uncheck that option it seems to not hang up at all… so far. The other issue is that when someone clicks on a photo to see it in the lightbox before the page is fully loaded the Lightbox seems to freeze.
On another topic, I have the “hide flash” option check but I still see the shadow of my “Shareaholic Social Media” icons come though the show. Anyway to fix that? You can see it here http://www.thedigitaltrekker.com/portfolio/malaysia/
I also noticed that the default theme seems to load the quickest.14 October 2013 at 10:36 #1057
Ok, looks like we need a short explanation.
1. Social media icons – those are outsourced elements loaded via JS script. We’re unable to control that element, no matter where it is used – in a lightbox, it page content, in site footer etc.
2. If someone clicks a photo before the page is loaded: The lightbox script (and any other JS scripts in WordPress, and anywhere else) is fired when the document or element (for example an image link) is ready. All the scripts in this and our other plugins are included using WordPress API: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_enqueue_script. That how it works in general.
3. Hide flash option has nothing to do with background opacity. The thing is your Shareaholic icons shadows have extremely high (for no reason) z-index parameter: z-index: 100000. In order to hide it below the lightbox modify that in your theme CSS to something smaller (like 100 or so)14 October 2013 at 15:58 #1062
Thanks, I’ll contact the developer and see if they can help me out with this. I tried messing around with the css and I made the change in Firebug bit could not replicate it on the css part of the them. nor could I find it in the plugin’s css. Soit isup to the developer to help.16 January 2014 at 08:13 #1787
Well, I should have related that the issue above was fixed. The kind folks at Shareaholic found their big and rewrote their script.
But now I have another conflict. My previous and next buttons do not seem to be showing up. It might be a conflict with the theme. But is there a way you might be able to check it out and see?

This class: pp_nav has display: none CSS style (maybe the buttons are disabled in plugin settings). Otherwise it would be enough to force displaying it using display: block!important.16 January 2014 at 09:42 #1789
I don’t see the option for buttons in the plugin settings.16 January 2014 at 09:48 #1790
Then modify it’s display using the simple CSS as above.
