Here’s a support thread where we are discussing it:
Basically, the Video element won’t launch lightbox for youtube on desktop, only on mobile, so you have to do a workaround using the photo element instead of video element, make a photo with a fake play button to tell people it’s a video, then do a custom link.
Seems like either having the video launch in lightbox on desktop as default or providing a check box option on the element would be a lot better?
That’s a lot of work just to get a lightbox… but thanks, I have taken this approach in the past and had forgotten it.
You have to:
1. Create image with play button
2. Insert via photo element with custom link
3. Code as display on desktop only
1. Insert video element
2. Code as mobile only
Glad to hear from another thread that Gunter has added this to the future workflow…. given how pervasive video is now I would hope we can have an easier solution soon. Thanks for reminding me of this approach! OK to close thread.
That’s interesting – thanks… so we use an image element and then use a Youtube link. That does work – but I’m curious, why doesn’t this work on the video element?
This seems like an odd workaround? Is there a way to get the “play” button to appear the entire time vs. just on hover… when people see the image they may not realize it’s a video.
And then on mobile, it just looks like a photo and you can’t tell it’s a video if you click.. what do you recommend? Use photo element with link for desktop and use video element with link for mobile? It would be so wonderful if video element would just do this… ;) Or is there another solution?

Wow, I am honored, can you name 4.6.3 after me?? HAHAHAHAHAH!
Thanks so much for this. Joking aside, I really appreciate all your help. (now if you could add Youtube lightbox functionality on desktop….) :)

Thanks for looking into this.
Today it seems to be working – I don’t see the message.
The message only appears in the Enfold sidebar widget on the blog pages. “Please Subscribe to My Newsletter Here:”
and yes, the button still exists even when the error message is displayed.
You can see the sidebar on this page:
Marin real estate blog
I do not see it in the contact form in the footer, only in the Enfold widget on sidebar. I’m pretty sure I am using a different real estate plugin for the contact form in the footer.
If and when the problem reappears I’ll try the code… right now there’s nothing to fix since it’s an intermittent issue. Maybe there’s some issue with the server side caching (WP Engine) and this widget?

There’s definitely a bug present we need to get rid of.
Today I went to my site on a computer where i had cleared the cache a few days ago, and my site is again displaying that message. I do not have any GDPR or privacy functions set and never have.
Important: The issue is with the Enfold Mailchimp Newsletter Signup widget, which I don’t even recalling having a Recaptcha in the past. If I clear the cache on my Chrome browser, it temporarily fixes the issue, but then it returns. I am not using Enfold for the contact form in the footer of my site.
Hoping Gunter and others can look at this soon.
I have seen the iframe=true recommendation in other threads and feedback from users is that it no longer works.
I tried it in this format:
and there was no change in behavior. Same if I get rid of the rel=0 parameter.
It appears from this Youtube developer URL that there is a way for Enfold to include this capability:
“Embed a player using an <iframe> tag
Define an <iframe> tag in your application in which the src URL specifies the content that the player will load as well as any other player parameters you want to set. The <iframe> tag’s height and width parameters specify the dimensions of the player.
If you create the <iframe> element yourself (rather than using the IFrame Player API to create it), you can append player parameters directly to the end of the URL. The URL has the following format:
The <iframe> tag below would load a 640x360px player that would play the YouTube video M7lc1UVf-VE. Since the URL sets the autoplay parameter to 1, the video would play automatically once the player has loaded.
<iframe id=”ytplayer” type=”text/html” width=”640″ height=”360″
I tried adding the above code to a code block on a dummy page and it does not launch lightbox either… are you sure Enfold is set up to do lightboxes for Youtube? Maybe Gunter can add a checkbox option to the video media element?

Thanks for responding!
Since we do not have any EU visitors, I have not yet implemented GDPR but I likely will in the future. So, I have never turned on and off cookie consent. This all started when I upgraded from 4.5.2? to 4.6.2 (I skipped 4.6 and 4.6.1).
I am happy to provide login details for my staging site below in private content. This morning when I go to my site it looks fine, but it was strange that the first time I went to it on a new computer since upgrading it gave me that message.
I am going to bump my own thread from a couple years back…. has the ability to launch Youtube videos in lightbox been added to Enfold yet? As I recall, this capability used to exist?
Upgraded to 4.6.2 and had the problem of authenticating the keys… so happy I found this thread — performing the activity in incognito mode fixed it.May 18, 2019 at 9:38 pm in reply to: Move to mobile menu if the menu bar begins to wrap on desktop? #1102102May 18, 2019 at 6:30 pm in reply to: Please help FAST: Cannot save updated pages after last WP + Enfold Update #1102074
Hi KEL, do you have Go Daddy hosting? If so, switch immediately to someone else like WP Engine. They are horrible.
Either way, this sounds like an issue you should discuss with your hosting service. It’s a server capacity issue, not an Enfold issue (whew!)
I used to have issues like that all the time when I had Go Daddy…. since I switched….zero issues. Worth it.
(I have no connection to Wp Engine, there are many great hosting services out there and almost all are better than GD)May 16, 2019 at 5:45 pm in reply to: What is – added: Hotspot image new option hover open – click to close in 4.5.7? #1101544May 16, 2019 at 5:11 pm in reply to: Please help FAST: Cannot save updated pages after last WP + Enfold Update #1101524
It happens all the time… likely your issue is (a) a conflicting plugin or (b) a corrupted Enfold install where some files were not written over. Also check your php version to make sure it’s above 7.0.May 16, 2019 at 4:38 pm in reply to: Please help FAST: Cannot save updated pages after last WP + Enfold Update #1101504
Did you update via FTP or via the “update” function on the backend? I would backup, then delete the Enfold theme folder (or rename them) and then upload fresh copy.I would do this AFTER disabling all plugins to see if there is a plugin conflict. Note that Michael and I are not mods, just longtime Enfold users that sometimes help out until the mods have a chance.May 15, 2019 at 5:00 pm in reply to: What is – added: Hotspot image new option hover open – click to close in 4.5.7? #1101121
And is this a new setting somewhere? I didn’t see it on the image with hotspots element.May 14, 2019 at 5:27 pm in reply to: Move to mobile menu if the menu bar begins to wrap on desktop? #1100697
Now that this function has been added to the latest Enfold 4.5.7, is it possible to set a custom screen size to break? I would like to switch to Burger at 1300 px, not at 990 px, which is the option in the new dropdown menu.

With WP Engine you can restore backups from the past 30 days from the WP Engine site (not backend). You go to https://my.wpengine.com/installs/ and then select backup points. You could then restore a backup from before the update and see if site comes back up. There are detailed instructions in the Enfold documentation on how to update via FTP if you need them.
Good luck!April 17, 2019 at 5:52 pm in reply to: 404 error loading themes/enfold/images/background-images/ios-linen-dark.png #1092087
Thanks for the offer – currently that site is out of date as I am working on an issue with a plugin author and need to keep it frozen to several weeks ago.
If you were to do that, the changes would need to be reapplied before next update right?
Actually, I solved it by disabling the performance options on Enfold (which, respectfully, never really worked for my site anyway) and going back to a performance plugin that I love (Fast Velocity Minify).
Hoping you are working on some great new features for us in upcoming releases Günter! :)

Hi this is beyond my capability… not sure why this one file is popping up with css optimization is turned on. I wonder if it’s happening with other Enfold sites?
I don’t think the css optimization works anyway from what I have seen when I click ctrl-u on my site. I don’t see it compressed.
At this point I’ll just turn off css optimization item on Enfold performance settings.
ThanksApril 16, 2019 at 5:47 pm in reply to: 404 error loading themes/enfold/images/background-images/ios-linen-dark.png #1091608
You got it! When I enable CSS compression under Enfold performance tab, the 404 error above starts… if I disable, it goes away.
Is this a bug with css compression? Well done on figuring this out!

WP Engine puts them both on the same server, but has caching on the production side that’s not on the staging side. I’m not sure what other differences there might be.
I didn’t see this in functions or header.
I’ll leave admin login credentials for staging side in private content.

Thanks for the response! Geoblocking is turned off. I input the code on staging site and it looks like there are two burger menus? See link in private content.April 15, 2019 at 10:30 pm in reply to: 404 error loading themes/enfold/images/background-images/ios-linen-dark.png #1091110
Geoblocking is now turned off…can you try again please?
RobApril 14, 2019 at 8:19 pm in reply to: 404 error loading themes/enfold/images/background-images/ios-linen-dark.png #1090705
Hi Mike, thanks for your response!
No, the staging site is not doing this (in private content).
Caching cannot be disabled as it is server side mandated by WP Engine, but I can exclude certain cookies and subdirectories.
What would you suggest I try?
RobApril 12, 2019 at 7:10 am in reply to: Move to mobile menu if the menu bar begins to wrap on desktop? #1089903
Sorry for delay in responding – we had a death in the family.
You can check it out here:
and it looks like it starts wrapping under 1350 pixels when I look at it on developer tools on Chrome.
The above code, pasted into the Optima Express configuration “css override” does indeed fix the issue with Enfold / Optima Express.
OK to close this ticket… maybe it will help another Enfolder in the future.
RobMarch 22, 2019 at 2:06 am in reply to: Please Stop Enfold Generating So Many Images Sizes for Every Image #1081661
I had a similar issue though without the CPU problems… (I have WP Engine, and they are amazing, zero regrets switching to them).
I was able to reduce the storage used on my site by 50%.
RobMarch 21, 2019 at 9:24 pm in reply to: Small bug in Enfold – possible to add to fix list? #1081564
Thanks for checking. It’s not a big deal — I just go into classic editor and select the photo size that I use most often, then Avia remembers it until I choose a different size in Classic.
I’m 99% sure that Avia used to “remember” the last photo size selected. I think it changed during one of the major revisions where the mobile menu functionality changed… maybe around 3.0? It’s been like this for at least 1.5-2.5 years.
Thanks again! OK to close thread.
