    Hello Kries,

    I’ve purchased your theme and have it installed in the latest version of WordPress (3.0)

    I’ve also imported the dummy data, to start with.

    For some reason the lightbox effect is not working?

    Couple of things: The WordPress install is in a sub directory of the root (I wouldn’t think this would effect the script?)

    and it is on a godaddy hosted server? (maybe not allowing the script to function correctly?)

    Thanks in advance for your help.


    Can you post a link to your site. Without looking at the source code it’s difficult to find the problem.



    Thanks for the reply, and thanks in advance for the help.

    Haven’t changed any of the code from the original theme downloaded from TF though, just mainly updating content.


    Yes there’s something wrong with the path/directory on the server. If you try to open the jquery.prettyPhoto.js file in the browser an error message of your hoster appears that the page couldn’t be found (error 404). This indicates that the js file can’t be found on the server. This file is responsible for the lightbox. Can you check the js directory. It should contain a folder called “prettyPhoto”.


    It looks like the whole js folder is missing – custom.js is also missing on your server. Other files like jquery etc. are loaded without problem, so there is no restriction/interdiction of javascript files in general.


    The js folder within the theme folder does contain the prettyPhoto folder with the css and images folder within that directory, but I dont see a .js file? Should it contain one? Also, again I created the wordpress install in a sub directory of the site with the intention of pointing the site to that folder once I had finished customizing the template. I’m not sure that should make a difference though being that the prettyPhoto js lives withing the theme folder?

    Again thanks for the quick help!


    Hey Dude, got it working, the actual script files were missing from the js directory. Not sure about that. Godaddy hosting sucks, kept kciking me off the server during ftp transfer, probably caused the problem, seems to be golden now. Thanks for the quick response and the insight to getting the problem solved. Great theme BTW Kries is a mad genius-
