  • PrettyPhoto: for an immersive experience with small thumbs navigation inside image

Initial version

404 Error

Why do I receive a "404 Error. Page not found." when I try to select anything other than FancyBox in Light Box type?
Asked by: adviti
Go To System -- Permission -- Roles And access Admin role, include the password and save the role. This will cascade admin rights to all the extension. Good Luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected but... Extension works as expected but is not compatible with color swatches extension. When I choose a colour option, the extension changes main image in order to display that colour, but instead of changing the image, I get this error: app/code/community/IG/LightBox2/Block/Catalog/Product/View/Media/Gallery.php on line 163

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great extension It works really good! The only additional thing I have had to do after installation is to Run Compilation Process (Backend ==> System/Tools/Compilation). Sometimes it keeps giving an error of page not found page (in one of my shops I obtained that mistake). You have to connect via ftp to your server and delete all folders inside var/cache One shortcoming is that the watermark is not shown on images placed on 'more views'

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not working :( LightBox2 doesn't work. I have installed this extension without problems but when I try to view a product in my frontend I have this error message I don't know what to do. Invalid method IG_LightBox2_Block_Catalog_Product_View_Media::renderCloudOptions(Array ( ) ) And a lot of lines after that message

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised I JUST use the Fancy Box and the default settings. I just wanted a quick way to get product images to zoom in a more modern style. This extension will get you lightboxes on product pages in just a few seconds versus an hour hard coding it into a template. Please note, I noticed if I exclude the main image my lightbox was not working. I rather see the "More Views" underneath rather than my lightbox not working. And note to the Dev: Please add an exclude jQuery option to the extension. You can remove it in the layout xml but for the average user already plagued with 100 Extensions all trying to force their own jQuery down their throats it's a nice relief to easily exclude jQuery.This is why I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. Works fine on 1.8.1
Date published: 2014-04-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but with shortcomings I had to manually edit one of the extension templates to get the title to show for the first/main image in the lightbox after no responses from the developer. Apart from this, extension works as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit more elegant hacking... Are you (too) annoyed by the "more images" bug? Change <?php if (count($this->getGalleryImages()) > 0): ?> <div class="more-views"> <h2><?php echo $this->__('More Views') ?></h2> <ul> to <?php if (count($this->getGalleryImages()) > 0): ?> <div class="more-views"> <?php if (count($this->getGalleryImages()) > 1): ?> <h2><?php echo $this->__('More Views') ?></h2> <?php endif ?> <ul> in /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/ig_lightbox2/catalog/product/view/media/gallery/*.phtml (I only use fancybox but he other files use the same code)
