I am trying to find a wordpress plugin that will allow me to have my Vimeo video pop up in a lightbox once the home page loads - automatically. Does your plugin do this?
You can try our plugin WonderPlugin Lightbox.
You can view the following page for how to do it: https://www.wonderplugin.com/wordpress-lightbox/pop-up-a-vimeo-video-in-a-lightbox-on-page-load/
For your video lightbox plugin, will I be able to put images and links within the description field of videos? I see it will parse the links I put before loading the video? Is there a way around it?
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)?
If the issue is caused by Ajax loading of the WordPress theme, please view the following tutorial: WordPress lightbox and Ajax loading WordPress themes
I wonder how can I add a poster image for HTML5 video lightbox?
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:
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>
I have a website in progress, I used Wonderplugin for WordPress and as I came across on the development, I cannot get it working.
I already uploaded images and configured everything on WordPress.
I also copied the shortcode to the php page that I am working on. But the carousel does not show up.
Normally this problem is that there are multiple jQuery files added to your WordPress.
You can view the HTML source code of your webpage, and check how many jQuery are added in your website. In Google Chrome, you can view the HTML source code with menu View -> Developer -> View Source, then search text "jquery" in the source code.
There should be only one jQuery in the webpage, which is added by the WordPress system.
Some plugins add their own jQuery to the website, and this is not correct. A plugin should always use the system installed jQuery, and the js files added from a plugin will be added after the system jQuery.
A jQuery will destroy all other jQuery functions that are added before it. So if a plugin adds its own jQuery, it may destroy other jQuery functions.
To fix the issue:
In the plugin, Setting menu, you can try to check the option "Add plugin js scripts to the footer". This option will place the plugin js file to the footer and will fix the problem in most cases.
If the above option is not working, you can try to disable all other plugins and see whether the WonderPlugin works. If it works, you can then enable the plugins one by one, and find the plugin that has caused the problem.
If WonderPlugin is still not working after you have disabled all other plugins, then the extra jQuery may have been added manually to the theme or the page, you need to find the code and remove it.
