What code is needed to call the Lightbox?


Well-known member
I'm using this code:
<div class="section" data-author="&nsbp;">
<div class="secondaryContent">
<h3>Random Images</h3>
[COLOR=#000000][SIZE=12px][FONT=Consolas]<a href="attachments/igfgmage-jpg.9/" target="_blank" class="LbTrigger" data-href="misc/lightbox" style="display:block; text-align: center;"> <img src="attachment.jpg" alt="Igfgmage.jpg" class="bbCodeImage LbImage" data-src="attachments/igfgmage-jpg.9/?embedded=1"> </a>[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]

This doesn't want to load the lightbox though. Upon checking the JS console I get this:
Opening LightBox for [
<div class="section" data-author="&?nsbp;">…</div>]
Num images: 3
setImage to attachments/idfdfmage-jpg.8/?embedded=1 from [<img id="LbImage" alt>]
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'replace' of undefined

Do you show also a avatar?
ATM you need to have a valid xf avatar also in the container (see http://xenforo.com/community/threads/lightbox-for-own-pages.12391/ and http://xenforo.com/community/threads/cant-get-lightbox-working-with-attachments.14256/ )

i had the same problem ( Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'replace' of undefined ) and that was because the xf lightbox tried to find a avatar in the container

that's because of
avatarSrc = $avatar.find('span.img').css('background-image').replace(/^url\(("|'|)
* Sets the avatar of the lightbox to the poster of the shown image
* @param jQuery $container
* @returns {XenForo.LightBox}
setAvatar: function($container)
var $avatar = $container.find('a.avatar'),
$avatarImg = $avatar.find('img'),

if ($avatarImg.length)
avatarSrc = $avatarImg.attr('src');
avatarSrc = $avatar.find('span.img').css('background-image').replace(/^url\(("|'|)([^\1]+)\1\)$/i, '$2');

$('#LbAvatar img').attr('src', avatarSrc);

return this;
OK my code now contains:
<div class="section" data-author="{$xenOptions.boardTitle}">
<div class="secondaryContent">
<h3>Random Images</h3>
<a class="avatar" href="{$logoLink}"></a>
{xen:raw $filebits}
<span class="DateTime" style="display: none;">lol</span>
It has a data-author, a hyperlink with an avatar class and a datetime class and yet it's still not working :(
once again:
check what the js code is doing (trying to do)

avatarSrc = $avatar.find('span.img').css('background-image').replace(/^url\(("|'|)([^\1]+)\1\)$/i, '$2');

example how it should look like:
<a href="members/james.908/" class="avatar Av908m" data-avatarhtml="true"><span class="img m" style="background-image: url('data/avatars/m/0/908.jpg?1280965423')"></span></a>

where's your span with class img??
Has a solution been found?

I have this in my template:

<xen:if is="{$car.attachments}">
<xen:include template="attached_files">
<xen:map from="$car" to="$post" /></xen:include>

It is using the original template and the small thumbnail shows up correctly but I can't get the lightbox working.
The error I keep getting (in the console) when I click the thumbnail is:
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'replace' of undefined

Something tells me I need a wrapper element because the lightbox can't find the image.

I created a wrapper with
hoping that it would help but it still doesn't work.

Problem solved. XenForo 1.1.0 beta 5 still needs an avatar. :cautious:
