Maybe it's something very easy to solve...

In my gallery, when I click on a cropped image the popup does not allways work ...sometimes when you click it pops up but then quickly get very small that you can not see the picture, and when you click out and then click again it works. It does that every time I go to any gallery page with some pictures on it.

On the settings I set to resize the image on 600x400 (that is also the original size....but it does this problem also when I but "original size").

So where could be the problem??

Thx for any help

I can confirm this is happening to us too (sometimes).

Please create a ticket (if one does not already exist).

Hi - Hope this helps... I have just solved what I think was the same/simaler problem -

IE6 and IE7 seemingly randomly load an image as a tiny thumbnail the first time - but show it correctly on a second attempt. On FFox the problem did not occur. I found the same issue on the Silverstripe demo gallery.

The Lightwindow forums have been discussing this issue and offered various solutions. The most recent of which worked fine for me:

I have been experiencing a number of problems viewing the lightwindows forums - so in case you can't view this the fix (by someone going by the name Jaryl - thanks Jaryl!) points to some code at

I found and replaced this in the gallery/javascript/lightwindow.js and the problem has now gone away - at least in IE6. Really saved me from alot of trouble!!

If this sounds relevant could someone try this - if it is seen to work then we can suggest that it is included in Gallery 0.2.3

I have not tried current daily of 0.2.3 - but the lightbox.js does not include this code.

The paging in the Gallery module doesn't work properly. If i click on an image on the second page it shows me the wrong picture, this only happens in IE6 and IE7. Only the first page of Gallery works properly. This also happens in the demo page of Silverstripe. Anyone got a clue on how to fix this? Thanks
