How to enable right-click on Lightbox images?

Recommended Posts

Hey all—

I'm currently using Squarespace 7.1 for my website (https://www.clairehummel.com/), and I'm frustrated that site visitors are unable to right-click and save an image when it's loaded in Lightbox. I understand that this is partially by design ( a lot of Squarespace 7.1's infrastructure seems built around preventing visitors from downloading images), but as an artist it's important for me to give clients the ability to save examples of my work as needed.

Is there any way to enable right-click on Lightbox images?


Thanks so much for any help!

Try adding to Home > Design > Custom Css

.gallery-lightbox-control {
  flex-grow: 0;
.gallery-lightbox-list .gallery-lightbox-item {
  pointer-events: auto;
.gallery-lightbox-list {
  cursor: auto;

This didn't work, I am trying to let my church group download images but they cant, Danielmgarcia.com/potters-house. I need this fixed if squarespace won't allow it I might have to switch to another platform. Please help.

Just tested the code on your site & It works. Can you add code again? If it still doesn't work, you can add & keep the code in CSS box, we can check easier
