Lightbox plugins not working on profile avatars?

  • Carsten Lund


    Many Colorbox/Lightbox plugins claims to work on all media images in BP posts and pages.

    But non of these seems to work on profile avatars, why is that?

    Does these plugins only work in galleries?

    BP profile images are very small, I am looking for a solution for making these images bigger when pressed.

    Profile avatar markup is generally pretty different from the markup used for the content of posts and pages. It’s likely that the plugins are written in such a way that they don’t recognize avatars as the kinds of images that ought to be expandable.

    Can you share links to one or two of the plugins you’ve tried? They all work a bit differently, but looking at one might give us a hint of how they can be extended to recognize BP avatars. It’s likely that it’s just a line or two of code to customize it in such a way.

    Hi Boone, thank you very much for clarifying about avatars.
    Here are the lightboxes I have tried so far:

    jQuery Colorbox
    WP Colorbox
    WP Lightbox 2
    ARI Fancy Lightbox
    Responsive Lightbox
    Simple Lightbox
    Wp Lightbox Bank Standard Edition

    Generally, an option for choosing avatar sizes in BuddyPress would be much appreciated!
