Lightbox changed the way it was working


In the last few days my Lightbox has changed the way it functions.

It used to be that when you clicked the thumbnail on the item page you would see the item grow larger and appear in a box over the darkened web page. It would have an X for you to close the box.

Now, when you click it instantly goes to a new web page and show a large version. There is no X so you have to back page on the browser.

I checked the store setting in the Presentation tab and it’s set to Lightbox as it was originally.

Any ideas?

Here’s the link to one of the item’s pages:

    Hi Neal,

    Was this something that was handled by a plugin other than MarketPress? I seem to recall your theme having it’s own e-Commerce module. Could the two be conflicting? Jetpack also has some built-in management of images, so there’s a further complication! Anyhow, I don’t know why, but I see what you are talking about.

    Here’s a chart that might help sort any plugin issues:

    Hope this helps! Let us know how it goes.

    I think you may be right that it’s an issue with something else. I fish around and see what I can find.


    BTW, can you give me some idea of how many points someone should get for being extra helpful or just helpful? Don’t have any idea of the scale we would use. Is 10 points considered good? Great? Average?


Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
