I upgraded to commercial version, but the free version watermark remains

Product:

All WonderPlugin Products

Question:

I purchased the commercial version and have received my membership login password. I downloaded the commercial version and followed the upgrade instructions as posted on your website, however, the free version watermark remains.

Answer:

Firstly, please goto the plugin menu Overview, check the title of the plugin. For commercial versions, it should say "WonderPlugin PLUGIN_NAME Commercial Version VERSION_NUMBER C".

If it still shows "Free Version", then it means your website is still running the free version. Please follow this tutorial to upgrade: https://www.wonderplugin.com/wordpress-tutorials/how-to-upgrade-to-wonderplugin-commercial-version/

If the title is correct, then it's normally a cache issue. There may be four caches that you need to clear.

1. Web server cache by your web hosts. Some web hosts will cache web files, for example, GoDaddy, WPEngine and DreamHost. Please contact your web hosting provider and ask them whether the web files are cached and how to clear the cache.

2. Website cache or JS minification/combination by your WordPress. If you have a cache plugin installed in your WordPress, for example, WP Super Cache, W3 Total Cache, empty the cache in the plugin. Some JavaScript minification/combination plugins will also cache JS files. If you are using one of these plugins, make sure you empty the cache or re-combine the JS files.

3. Your local web browser cache. Please clear caches of your web browser after you upgrade the plugin.

4. CDN sync. Some web hosting providers use CDN to deliver image and js files. In this case, you need to force to sync your content to all CDN servers. If you are using a CDN, please contact your web hosting provider for how to do this.

WordPress Lightbox and AJAX Loading

Product:

WonderPlugin Lightbox

Question:

I’m using my site a plugin that allows me to query the database and show results without requiring to code… I can also filter results based on search queries…

I’m using the lightbox in one page that uses such a filter/query. When I set my plugin to reload the entire page, it works fine (though pretty slow since there’s a lot of data), but if I filter using AJAX (i.e. the results are filtered without reloading the page), then the click event on the links that trigger the lightbox are removed… Therefore, after the first search/filter, the images are not clickable anymore…

Is there a way to prevent this (the click event from being removed)?

Answer:

After you use AJAx adding the data, you can call the following JavaScript to re-init the Lightbox:

jQuery(".wplightbox").wonderpluginlightbox();

How to add a poster image for HTML5 video lightbox?

Product:

WonderPlugin Lightbox

Question:

I wonder how can I add a poster image for HTML5 video lightbox?

Answer:

The HTML5 poster image feature is available in WonderPlugin Lightbox version 4.0 and above. If you are using an old version, please upgrade your plugin first.

In the plugin, Lightbox Options menu, there is an option "Video poster image (absolute URL)", you can use the option to specify a poster image for all HTML5 videos.

Or you can use a data tag data-html5videoposter to specify a poster image for the lightbox link, for example:

Video Lightbox

The HTML code is as following:

<a href="https://www.wonderplugin.com/wp-content/plugins/wonderplugin-lightbox/images/demo-video0.mp4" class="wplightbox" data-webm="https://www.wonderplugin.com/wp-content/plugins/wonderplugin-lightbox/images/demo-video0.webm" data-html5videoposter="https://www.wonderplugin.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/gallery.jpg">Video Lightbox</a>
