Hi everyone i have an issue when i upload my preset layout ive been working on on my pre webpage for a portfolio. i get a white image box with a question mark and the titles on the image its suppose to be, then when i click on the image, the big image appears as it should, but the codes behind the image does not work no after effects, as it suppose to in live view, it shows the same thing a big image white image when it pops up and a question mark and no effects. it opens up one image and it a white big image box that is empty??!

 

 

is there a new version on lightbox im just not aware of for the reason of the issue?

    You may just need to clear your browser cache.

     

    It's also possible you have some bad or missing links.

     

    Hard to say without seeing the site though. Any chance you could post a link to a page online?

    Copy and pasting the code may not reveal the issue, sometimes it takes the page on a server to see where you are going wrong, but if it's the only alternative, you can give it a try.

     

    You have to be in the forum to post code though, you can't post it via email.

    Other than a few extra </div> tags (three of them towards the end) I don't see any obvious errors that jump out at me.

     

    It looks like you have quite a few different locations where you are keeping scripts and css. You could have a directory or two goofed up there, but there is no way for us to verify without an actual uploaded page we can see the functioning links on.

    Be sure to upload all plug-in scripts, CSS files and images to your web server.

    Is there any chance you accidentally saved your images as CMYK, rather than RGB?

    My tutorial works with any jQuery plug-in regardless of platform (win/mac). 

     

    I suspect you haven't unzipped all the plug-in files yet. 

    Download StuffIt.  http://www.stuffit.com/mac-stuffit.html

    It works on Mac as well as Windows.

    Instead of using older Lightbox widget,  why don't you just use Fancybox? 

    It's more modern and can handle anything you toss at it.

    How would you use it with dreamweaver though

     

    The same way you use all jQuery plug-ins.  By extracting files to your local site folder and editing your code.

    Fancybox 1.3.4 is free  - unless you care to make a donation.

    If you prefer to use another lightbox alternative, there are literally dozens of them on the web.  Do a Google search to find them.
