    Hi there,

    I am using the Jetpack Carousel which is working great for my gallery created on my Gallery page, see here: https://valhalla.ie/gallery/

    However, the image gallery for the accommodation types are not working in the Carousel light box fashion, when the image is clicked it loads in its own tab with this url: https://i1.wp.com/valhalla.ie/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Valhallabnb_Seaview1_Bedroom_1-smaller.jpg?ssl=1

    There is no way to skip forward and view the other accommodation images. Plus, you have to click on back and reload the page to get back to the original accommodation page.

    I was wondering if this is an issue with the hotel booking plugin or Jetpack, however the Jetpack Carousel is working fine on my Gallery page as above.

    Perhaps there is another way to create a gallery for the accommodation type that does work in the carousel fashion?

    Thanks for your help,

    Helen

    Hello Helen,

    This can be achieved simply by installing the Responsive Lightbox & Gallery plugin – once it is done, your accommodation type gallery image will be opened in a lightbox carousel.

    Thanks, Andre. Could you clarify, do I have to recreate the accommodation gallery within the editor for this to work?

    Hello Helen,

    There is no need to recreate the gallery in the editor, you may use the accommodation type default gallery and it will work perfectly with the activated Responsive Lightbox & Gallery plugin .

    Regards,

    Hi Andre,

    Unfortunately this does not work with the Responsive Lightbox & Gallery plugin but it did work with Simple lightbox plugin.

    Thanks though
