Hello.

Today the owner of a site i administer has installed wpForo advanced attachments addon. Works nice, no issues.

Until now we use a Wordpress lightbox plugin for EVERYTHING in the site. But it doesn't allow to browse back and forth (slider) in photos posted with the addon.

So we have to disable it and use wpForo adv attachments plugin lightbox.

But now other (old) photos posted in wpForo topics (as url links) do not open in lightbox.

How can we solve this ?

Thanks

Hi @dimalifragis,

I'd recommend activate back the Lightbox plugin. Then go to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Addons > Advanced Attachments Tab and deactivate the addon lightbox:

@robert Ok, but doing that i do not have the slider option (that your lightbox has).

OK, FYI and anyone else having an issue, i found one plugin that works globally and also shows all attachments in a post (slideshow also).

@dimalifragis,

Try the Lightbox – EverlightBox: https://wordpress.org/plugins/everlightbox/

This one provides with a slider.
