Hey there,

i like to open the images of a gallery without changing the URL.

Is that possible?

- Matthias

CodingJack

Hi Matthias,

Yes you can turn off the custom urls by changing the JavaScript found inside the html example file(s) from this:

jQuery(".jackbox[data-group]").jackBox("init");

to this:

jQuery(".jackbox[data-group]").jackBox("init", {deepLinking: false});

Is there a gallery view supported with thumbnails in rows and columns ?

I dont see it in the demo.

Im looking to buy, if there is a gallery view supported.

CodingJack

Hi Qubesys,

Yes inside all of the demos, toward the bottom you’ll see horizontal thumbnails. Click any of the examples here for a demonstration.

Changing the thumbnails to stack vertically would require a decent amount of CSS and JS edits.

Sorry, what I mean is a set of thumbnails view on the page. I understood the thumbnails on the lghtbox. But I need the thumbnails to be on the page, which when clicked can open on lughtbox with thumbnails there as well.

CodingJack

Hi Qubesys,

Ok I understand. The content on any given web page that triggers the lightbox is all up to you.

Hi! I’m looking for a lightbox with a Facebook Like button so I’m very interested by your script. Here is my question. I’m using a script to display a Facebook album gallery with the API. So the gallery is generated dynamically. Is there a way to open each thumbnail (As I do actualy with prettyPhoto) with your lightbox but, the most important, the like button must works for each opened picture. Here is the plugin album I use: http://zach.lysobey.com/projects/fbalbum Thank’s

Hi dragon,

I’m not sure how that plugin works, but if you can alter the HTML output by applying custom attributes such as “class” and “data-”, you’ll be able to use JackBox with it.

I have a second question why almost all my youtube movies don’t function ? http://www.sport-events.be/website/speaker/bilzen111/ If on that page you click the thumbnail watch movie, you will see what I mean

Hi wimothy,

Change your YouTube url in the JackBox admin popup from this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcy0jN3PgBY&feature=youtu.be

to this:

Thanks jack that worked. But how about my first question linking to a normal url page where the page has a dark overlay over it

CodingJack

Hi Wimothy,

Sorry I missed the first question. In that html file, add the following directly before the ”</head>” tag:

<style type="text/css">body {background-color: #FFF; padding: 20px;}</style>

Hi there,

Two quick qus for you please:

1) Is it possible to enable cursor actions for prev and next with this lightbox?

2) Also I tested the multiple img gallery on an iPhone 4S and it kept crashing after the fourth or fifth swipe – is this a known bug? Is there a fix?

Thanks,

lizardlingo

CodingJack

Hi lizard,

1) Yes, this was added in one of the updates.

2) This doesn’t occur for me here, and I haven’t had anyone else report this.

Hi, is there a way to have the lightbox load automatically on my home page when someone loads my site? I have a video pop up I’d like to pop up automatically when someone visits my home page. Am I missing that feature somewhere?

CodingJack

Hi Corey,

You could accomplish this with the following JavaScript:

jQuery.jackBox.available(function() {

    jQuery('#jackbox-item-id').trigger('click');

});

and the html:

<a id="jackbox-item-id" class="jackbox">some text</a>

Not happy. This is in the JavaScript category of CodeCanyon, but after purchasing found that it requires PHP for certain features to work. This was not disclosed anywhere in your product description. My server does not support PHP – so this is not usable to me. I would like a refund.

CodingJack

Hi Iantram,

“php” is listed as one of the “Files Included” in the products description. It’s only used for the social buttons, so if you wanted you could still use the lightbox without that feature.

The product is listed under “JavaScript” because 95% of it is JavaScript (and there isn’t a “JavaScript + PHP” category), but if you’d like to request a refund, this can be done here:

Very nice! Which is the minimum jQuery version I can use? How big are the CSS and JS files? I dont want to display the social sharing buttons. Is this possible?

CodingJack

Hi Makaay,

The minimum jQuery is 1.7. JS is 54kb, and CSS is 17kb. The documentation includes information for how the social buttons can be disabled.

Just bought Jackbox and installed the plugin. When you create or edit a page, it breaks the visual editor. Running wordpress 3.8.1 on a brand new install. Also the input box doesn’t work for the visual editor, but does work for the text editor.

Default-user

Well I got it working, but not really impressed with the amount of hoops you go through to display a gallery. I’ll be asking for a refund since I found a better gallery plugin to use.

CodingJack

Hi Fraga,

I think you meant to post over at the WordPress version. The product over there is advertised as a “lightbox”, not a “gallery with a lightbox”.

Hi, I have purchased Jackbox and it all seems pretty good, however no matter what I do I can’t get the social icons to ‘share’. When I click on them they do nothing at all. I have installed it on 2 servers and the problem is the same. In this instance [removed] it is straight out of the download zip with no alteration whatsoever, but the problem is the same as on a production version I am trying to get working. Can you please offer any insight as to why I can’t get it to work? Thankyou

CodingJack

Hi atype,

All of the share buttons seem to be working correctly for me here. Send me an email from my profile page and I’ll try and help you figure out why it isn’t working for you.

P.S. I flagged your message because of the live link but no worries.

Thanks CodingJack,

It seems we’ve got it mostly cleared up now, with the issue unable to be replicated, and you were very helpful and responsive to my emails.

Very nice plugin.

How to implement two or more jackbox on the same site?? It is possible?? I copied and pasted the function, changed the basename and classname associated to the html class, it doesn’t work.

Cheers

CodingJack

Hi Stef,

When you say “two or more on the same site”, do you mean add lightbox items to more than one html page? If so, this is definitely possible. Send me an email from my profile page with a link to your site where it isn’t working and I’ll help you out with this.

Hi there

All happy with my purchase but need two bits of info:

1. How do I turn off the scroll bars when calling an iframe 2. How can I close the lightbox from inside an iframe?

I want to use it to send a message – if it successfully submits > close lightbox

cheers

Jeff

CodingJack

Hi Jeff,

To turn off scrolling for iframes, using the “source” folder, inside the file “jackbox/js/jackbox.js”, around line #2069, you’ll see this:

default:

    loadFrame(url, false, true);

// end default

change it to this:

default:

    loadFrame(url, false, false);

// end default

To close the lightbox from a link inside a loaded iframe, first make sure the loaded iframe includes jQuery, and then use the following format in your hyperlink:

<a href="#" onclick="jQuery(window.parent.document.body).find('.jackbox-modal').trigger('click')">close lightbox</a>

hello I used your jackbox for a site, everything works fine I have only two things I do not understand

[link removed] (image link) This address does not work with firefox

maybe I was wrong to enter it?

[removed] (link on google map) and in this address I entered google map but not able to put the center icon google

can you give me some help

many thanks

CodingJack

Hi Geppo,

The links there are the same, but maybe the forum here truncated the url you wrote? Send me an email from my profile page and I’ll try and help you further with this.

Should have paid more attention. As much as I hate internet explorer, it needs to work in ie7 for the project im working on.

Iframe just loads the page – not the iframe in the jackbox

CodingJack

Hi Jeff,

Yeah unfortunately IE7 isn’t supported. Just IE8+

Hi CodingJack,

I’ve recently installed your awesome lightbox on my site.

However testing it on Firefox – the animated GIFs I’m using are showing up incredibly grainy / pixelated.

They’re ok on Chrome / the previous lightbox though.

Is there an easy way of modifying the code so that my GIFs show up crisp?

Thanks,

LL

CodingJack

Hi lizardlingo,

I’m guessing the reason for this is because the gif images are being scaled, since JackBox is “responsive” by default? Send me a link to your example from the form on my profile page and I’ll see if I can help you further.

Hi Jack,

I recently purchased your Responsive Lightbox and I love it! There’s one thing I would love to do. I looked at the comments for to add the data-description on the video. I tried but maybe I am just not getting it. I am a beginner. I know the data-description part is currently set as hidden. I would like to show the description for my videos. Can you walk me through step by step? Thank you in advance! Sammi

CodingJack

Hi Sammi,

Inside the download source, you’ll find video examples named “local_video.html”, “vimeo.html” and “youtube.html”. Each example has a “data-description” attached to the lightbox item that you can use as a blueprint for adding a description for your video items.

Hi,

Is it possible to link different data-groups with previous and next arrows, similar to how each item within the same data-group is currently linked? At the moment the ‘default’ is that arrows work within the same data-group but don’t link two data-groups (i.e. galleries) together.
