Double lightbox effect on shortcode images?

  • Creator
  • #12447

    I have used the lightbox shortcode for a number of images on my site. Without exception, clicking on those images causes TWO modal windows to open. Here’s an example of my shortcode usage –

    [lightbox link=”/ackley/wp3.5/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/AM_LaserDrill_RD.jpg” thumb=”/ackley/wp3.5/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/AM_LaserDrill_RD-203×300.jpg” width=”203″ align=”center” title=”Ackley Laser Drill Unit for Research and Development Projects” frame=”true” icon=”image”]

    Here’s a link to my site –, and a page where you can see this effect is Solutions > Printing Systems (the first image on the page). Please tell me how to eliminate this duplication.

    You have a plugin installed called Easy FancyBox:

    That’s what’s causing the issue. You just need to disable that plugin.


    Oh how silly! Yep – that takes care of things. One more question, if you please –

    On this page – – there is an image in the right sidebar that should also ‘lightbox’. The effect begins, but then I get an error message that the lightbox media could not be loaded. The relevant code is –


    Well, pasted code didn’t work. I’m trying again –

    <a href=""><img src="/ackley/wp3.5/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/AM_visioninspection.jpg" alt="Ackley Vision Inspection with Single Tablet Rejection" title="Ackley Vision Inspection with Single Tablet Rejection" class="themeblvd-lightbox mfp-image"></a>

    You’re currently putting the lightbox classes classes on your thumbnail image, but you need to put them on the anchor tag you want to link to the popup.

    For example:

    <a href="image.jpg" class="themeblvd-lightbox mfp-image">
        <img src="thumb.jpg" />
