Usually when lightbox works locally but not live, it's because there's a file missing, or misnamed. If it didn't put to the server, or if there's even a case dicsrepancy, it will show the behavior you see on the site. Checking the href image from the source code gives a 404 error, which could be either problem.
Double check all file names and be sure that the full size images went to the server and to the correct location.
Hi, thanks for the quick response. I have checked the server and all the large files are definitely on there and in the correct location where the a href points to.
- It's highly recommended to create for your Lightbox php- or html-files an own directory, here I use the name "LBX".
- Put all the Lightbox-gif-files (nextlabel.gif, and so on) into a subdirectory, (you have to use the name "images"): that means now: "LBX/images".
- Put your fotos for your slide show in an other subdirectory: LBX/slides.
After doing that everything should work.
Again, case may be an issue. Some servers will put all folders to lower case, which is why it is a good idea not to use upper case in your local root folder names so they don't throw things off when they are put to a server which may change them.
I get this error when trying to access the large image:
The requested URL /Images/LBoxLarge/HUD1B.jpg was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
That comes from either a missing file (which you have confirmed is NOT the case) or a bad file name/path name (folder or file name has been
modified on putting it to the server)
ok why not use lowercase letters to be on the safe side, apart from that proceed on the analogy of my hint.
This seems to be doing the trick - thanks
