WordPress Lightbox not working?

OK… perhaps this just happened to me. I was working on some new posts today and ran into a situation where the built in lightbox or shadowbox plug-in would not work. I started searching the web for an answer. Hours of searching and trying other plug-ins I had NO luck and was just about to give up. Then I figured that just changing the properties on each image was all I had to do… Thank you Triggabytes.com for some help…


So if you go to the image and edit the properties you might see that there image link references an “attachment” but that is where the problem is. Click on “link to image” to fix an excising image. If you are adding a new Post or new Image to a post your options a little different. For the Link URL you want to click on the File URL button. This will link the image correctly so that the lightbox works correctly.


I still do not know why this happened or why i need to edit anything when I never had to before.
