Lightbox anything problems in the last week - slideshow opening but pictures no longer show-is anyone else experiencing problems with this plug-in?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 
 
I am having issues with the lightbox anything plug-in.
 
SInce tues/wed this week slideshow images in lightbox are now no longer showing.  I can see the slideshow in the project page and it functions but when it loads in the lightbox, it is now blank. See attached screenshot.
 
I have a page called 'Portfolio' which has images of my books. I followed the steps here https://beaverhero.com/squarespace-portfolio-lightbox/ and have set up a portfolio style page called 'work' which has each of my books as projects and a selection of photos of each within.  I am using the link to page to open up the portfolio images associated with each book.
 
Initially I was having a problem with the following:
- I wanted to have these display as a slideshow with thumbnails - this was working to a point but the images kept caching and not returning to the 1st image when reopened. 
 
At this point I reached out to the dev but then when they looked at the website the slideshow lightbox diaplyed as blank (with navigation arrows), just no images displaying.
 
I have tried removing the css and js, dowloaded again and linked back into squarespace.  The code is in the footer as a markdown block:
 
<link href="/s/plugin-lightbox.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="/s/plugin-lightbox.js"></script>
<script>pluginLightbox();</script>
 
I have tried deleting all the pictures and uploading again -even tried with just the Sqsp stock images:
- I can see the images in the lightbox if I put the gallery in strip mode but slideshow now seems to be not functioning.
- I can see the images in the slideshow on the page I am trying to lightbox to.
 
I have reached out to the owner and he  suggested it was becasue the website has a password  - I made the website public and the issue persisted.
 
Is anyone else experiencing issues or know how to resolve this?

I recommend that you contact the plugin author/supplier to see if they can resolve this for you. The forum community cannot resolve technical issues but I can tell you that, in the last two weeks, Squarespace have made a number of changes to page markup (the code used to structure pages on Squarespace websites) and these have affected third party addons as well as custom code.

Is there somewhere to see release notes for any enhancements or fixes that Squarespace are rolling out?

Squarespace don’t publish these publicly, but the plugin author should be aware of them.
