How do I "activate" Lightbox?

by lavalamp213 » Thu May 03, 2018 11:49 am

I have enabled the lightbox extension and put the settings as advised in the FAQ.. But I don't see any indication of how to use it.

I tried dragging and dropping 3 images into a post, but they posted just as they did before I installed Lightbox.

What am I missing?

EDIT: I think now that it is working but it's tweaky.
first, even though I have the files placed inline with no space between, the images still stack in a column rather than side-by-side.

Second, other than the positioning, they look fine in preview and when I click on them I get the nice lightbox effect, but when I click "submit" all but one disappear and this text appears
The attachment XYZ.jpg is no longer available


I would love to get this working. I'm using phpbb v3.2.2

Apparently the disappearing images happens without lightbox as well. It's like a problem in attachments.

EDIT: I figured this out. My Max attachment setting was too low. I changed it to 0.

Still can't line the images up though side by side.

So, only using insert image will allow side by side? I guess that means I need to use something like "Imgur" if I want this option.

I read about the problems with postimage and other image hosting sites and it just isn't something I want to get involved with. I think I will wait for an extension that solves the problems of posting images as attachments. In the meanwhile just get used to all the blank space in a post.

I would happily pay for image hosting space if there was one compatible with phpbb.
