    I hope I didn't miss something, but I've looked through the forums and didn't see anything on what I'm looking for...

    I'm trying to get shadowbox to work with a custom shadowbox.js and shadowbox.css . I've tried what is suggested via the plugin page here:

    with no luck. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but figure it's something very simple that I'm not getting or overlooking. I have the current version from It would be nice to use it with the plugin, but not necessary. I'm pretty sure I know how to call the script from my functions.php, but not positive and a little uncertain how to get it to work with the custom css. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

  2. can you be more specific? "this plugin doesn't work" is sort of vague. what exactly are you attempting? what do you need to add via functions.php that you don't know how to?

    ok- read the FAQ more closely than i wanted to. i presume you mean:

    function custom_shadowbox_js($url) {
        return get_bloginfo('stylesheet_directory') . '/js/shadowbox.js';
    add_filter('shadowbox-js', 'custom_shadowbox_js');

    that looks tailor-made for just dropping straight into your child's functions.php . verify that your paths are correct.- ie that you have a folder in your childtheme called js and that shadowbox.js is the name of the custom file.

    double check by loading your site and viewing the source. if you see the shadowbox.js coming from your theme then you got that part right.

    Sorry about that, shoulda been more specific. It wasn't working when I put that in my functions.php, but it ended up being due to an error with the custon shadowbox.js I was trying to use. My bad.

    Banged my head against the wall for a while, went back to the original files, and sure enough worked like a charm. Thanks again :)
