    Hi there,

    I have a few images that are linked to another image. When I hover over some of the images the magnifying glass comes on and when I click it opens the attachment in a zoom window.

    However, I would like it so that ALL of the images open this way.

    How do I take an image that opens the attachment in a separate page to open with the magnifying zoom effect?


    I guess the magnifying effect is lightbox. How do I add the lightbox effect to all of my images. And I would also like to have it so that when I click on the image it does the lightbox effect on the attachment image I have set up. It’s doing it on a few images but I can’t get it to do it on all of them.


    Hi markjoseph7,

    In the new image editor for wordpress you have the option of linking an image to its attachment page, its Media File or a Custom URL. You need to make sure the option is selected for Media File for each image when inserting an image into the visual editor so that the lightbox effect can pick it up.
