I have dloaded libraries 7.x-2.0 in my modules folder and installed colorbox 7.x-2.2 in modules and installed 1.3.26 plugin to sites/all/libraries folder and enabled colorbox in manage display for fields. ALL OF THIS WAS WORKING BEFORE UPGRADE. So started from scratch but when I click on an image it opens lightbox and the image never loads.

  • anything in your logs, also you clear the cache. Any recently module that it was installed and apply like display suite. Did you check in the manage display of the content type?

  • I've reinstalled now for the fourth time, cleared caches everything. The only thing that has changed since it was working last is an upgrade in colorbox for which I used drush but now installed manually and no reported errors. Just as I say, the image will not load in the lightbox. Could this be a file path problem? I haven't changed any file paths...or I noticed in colorbox settings it lists add/node/* as one of pages not to be displayed? I'm completely confused and have had to put site in maintenance mode for long time now. Only launched site yesterday.

  • it might sounds like a silly question...bud did you check the permissions of your images files in your server? What I would suggest is to download the site to your computer and see if I have the same issues there reggarding to permission.

  • cayerdis...not silly at all. drwxrwx--- 12 apache root 4096 Jan 24 13:56 files but def this has to do with some kind of override in settings where can't view files. still haven't fixed it.

The latest version of the colorbox plugin uses a different version string in its js file ( sites/all/libraries/colorbox/colorbox/jquery.colorbox-min.js ) so it doesnt get recognised by the colorbox module requirements check.

If possible look at the version string from the previous file, it's the first line, and copy that over, incrementing the number in the new file.

  • in the js or min.js ? sorry which part do i copy over please David..
