[Solved] Lightbox Display, Not Working - Blogger

Author: Gagan Masoun
[Solved] Lightbox Display, Not Working - Blogger
The Blogger has its own built-in light box tool for displaying multiple pictures within blog posts, but you can also use a third-party light box tool. Many bloggers have reported that their blogger blogs, which are set to display images using the Blogger Lightbox image feature, are not displaying images correctly.

If you are also facing problems with the built-in lightbox, do some basic troubleshooting to attempt to resolve the issue. They reported that full size images are now being displayed in a normal browser window, with the browser back arrow required to return to the blog post, they can not use "X" button which closes the overlay. In this short tutorial I will tell you how to solve the Lightbox display problem in your blogger blog.

Update*: Now, the blogger lightbox issue finally fixed by blogger team and it is working fine now!!! So you may take down the lightbox code mentioned in this post.

I am suggested to add a brief snippet of code to the blogger template. Follow the given below steps:

1. Go To Blogger Dashboard >> Choose Your Blog >> Templates
2. Click On Edit HTML and Find Given Code

</body>

3. After </body> Tag, Add The Following Code and Save Your Template

<script src='https://blogsdaddy.googlecode.com/files/lightbox.js' type='text/javascript'/>

  2. Hi Gagan,

    I have used the Lightbox fix script for my blog, It took me less then 10 seconds to make the change in the HTML and the Lightbox is working perfect now.
    Just a quick question can there be any issue of any kind since I am adding a third party script src: "src='https://blogsdaddy.googlecode.com" and usually I am not in favor of adding third party scripts to my blogs HTML ?

    I really appreciate you sharing this fix there are many people out there who are very grateful for the help with fixing this error.

    Thanks

    1. Hello,

      First of all thanks for your comment. This is not third party script. I found this code from my blogger blog's cached version. So, don't worry about it. Cheers :)

  3. Hi, I noticed that in the lightbox feature, say it's pulling up the first of 20 images, it says "1 sur 20"...do you know why it's no longer in english for this label?

  4. Hello Gagan,

    I am running two websites for which lightbox is already enabled but since lightbox was not working properly for quite a few days, images were showing in full size.

    I tried your script but it didn't work. And even though, as you have mentioned in your last comment, Google has fixed the issue, images are still not showing up in an overlay What could be the possible workarounds?

    1. It was major problem in lightbox of blogger. So, I think they are still working to solve this issue properly. You can remove our mentioned code.

    2. I have tried and removed the aforementioned code, but i still can't see the lighbox overlay. I can see that it is working on your blog, but not on mine. If you can just take a look at my websites, and suggest me something, it would be really helpful of you.

    3. Hello,

      Please leave your blog URL here. Tell me one thing, are you using blogger's default template or customization template?

    4. Thanks for your reply.
      I am actually using a third party template just like you have. The interesting thing is that initially when i started my blogs the lightbox was working, but then i made a couple of changes to add some widgets and theme specific customization and now the lightbox does not seem to work.
      The problem is that i really don't know if any of the scripts is conflicting with the default lightbox from Google, or it is actually not working.

      Have a look at my blogs - i have enabled lightbox from the settings. Hope you can find something.

    5. Try to remove scripts from your blog, which are not much important. Or use another template. It will help you.
