prettyPhoto 2.5.6: Bug fixes (only!)

January 5th 2010

Allright, I’ll be very honest with you. I introduced some bugs in prettyPhoto 2.5.5. Luckily those I’m aware of just got fixed!

I fixed:

  • A bug where the loader icon wouldn’t display properly;
  • A bug where the videos would still play when prettyPhoto was closed;
  • A bug where prettyPhoto wasn’t displaying properly upon re-initialization.

If you still see some bugs (hey, I’m human!) or need some support, check out the support forums.

Head over the project page to download it!

    looks like there’s a bug in PP, when Quicktimes are viewed in IE 7 the controller sometimes disappears, this also happens in the PP demo files for download.

    Hi, prettyPhoto is very cool! But there’s one thing you should change. In the empty href=”#”, instead of href=”#” you should write href=”javascript:void(0);” because FF dosen’t like “#” he return the root page of the site instead of doing nothing.

    There is a little issue with f***ing IE 😉
    I wasted some time for bugfixing 😉 If you have an ID “images” (e.g. ) on the page, the script doesn’t work.
    Crappy invalid IE sux 😉

    you did reallty great job! I decided to use your script, but I found kind of a bug.

    When I call .prettyPhoto() function twice (code below), it generates error, that says $ppt is undefined. I read the code, and the problem appears because _buildOverlay is not called and the $ppt, $pp_pic_holder and $pp_overlay vars are not set.

    I use multiple .prettyPhoto() calling because of some ajax content loading.

    Thank’s a lot 4 this great script, wish you the best.

    Example code:
    $(element+” a[rel^=’prettyPhoto’]”).prettyPhoto();
    $(element+” a[rel^=’prettyPhoto’]”).prettyPhoto();

    Hi there

    Trava – have you (or anyone else) found a workaround for the situation you are dealing with? It puts a pretty big hex on this plugin for me not to be able to use it with Ajax. I’m looking at how I can hook into the calls and try to make sure that _buildOverlay does get called, but if you can speed things up that would be brilliant.

    Once you double click on close button, the plug-in shows js errors and none of the scripts would work. You will have refresh the page.

    Hi blogger, i found this post on 14 spot in google’s search results.

    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high
    bounce rate. This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is
    due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further
    down the search results your posts and pages will end up, so
    having reasonably low bounce rate is important for increasing
    your rankings naturally. There is very useful wordpress plugin which
    can help you. Just search in google for:

To appear anything but ordinary, opt for angled bangs to accentuate your exclusive style. Whilst bangs require more frequent maintenance, they’re great for covering up a long forehead, flaws or lines.
