  • I'm using this code to show a gallery with thumbnails. When clicking on a thumbnail, the image popups up in a lightbox (slimbox).

    [[Gallery? &plugin=`slimbox` &overlayOpacity=`0` &album=`[[*kiesalbum]]` &toPlaceholder=`gallery` &thumbTpl=`galleryrowTpl2` &thumbWidth=`228` &thumbHeight=`171` &thumbQuality=`80`]]

    [[+gallery:notempty=`<div class="row" id="gallery">[[+gallery]]</div>`]]

    But it does not show the captions (descriptions of the images). It just says "Image x of x".
    The navigation arrows are also missing; clicking on the image just closes the image.

    Anyone got a solution?
    • There might be a solution to the navigation arrows here? https://github.com/modxcms/Gallery/issues/55

      • Thanks, but I tried that and it did not work.

        How come noone ever found a solution or complains on this? Must be more people using the Gallery extra.
        • Does it work correctly with a different lightbox?

          Do you have the necessary jQuery files present and accessible? (Probably not necessary to ask this - but I have made such mistakes in the past!)

          Does it make any difference if you call the snippet uncached?

          [[!Gallery?

          • The lightbox itself is working, so everything is in place. Only the caption and navigation are missing. Please read my issue.

            BTW: uncaching it makes the entire gallery disappear. That's why I'm using it without the '!'.
