Huh! The newly released Lightbox effect has caused a lot of trouble on various blogs especially those photography blogs which had another version of Lightbox effect installed on it. If you had missed the earlier article about this newly enabled effect, I recommend you to check it now by navigating to the following link – Is BlogSpot Testing Lightbox Effect for its Images? Just ensure whether the effect is visible on your blogspot blog before you proceed with this article:)
As far as the responses regarding this newly enabled Lightbox version is concerned, many seemed to hate it – including me! So, if you plan to remove this effect from your blog, then follow the instructions below.
1. Navigate to “Design>>Edit HTML” and make a backup of your template by clicking on the “Download full template” link at the top of the page. Once the back up is over, search for the following piece of code. Use CTRL+F to search – the easy way.
2. Just replace the above code with the following block of code.
3. Save your template and your done!
Note: I’m not the one who coded the above mentioned script. I’m just trying to share the script which disabled the Lightbox effect on my demo blog – probably it can work out on your blog too. The actual credit may go to whomsoever it may concern – definitely not me:)
I did come across a discussion wherein a person from the blogger team has promised to discuss about the the option for disabling this effect on blogger and to make it more flexible. So, the above script shall be a temporary solution. To know more about the discussion, just visit the following link – Removing LightBox Effect from Blogger.
Just let me know if you were able to disable the effect on your blog with the script above via comments! I would love to receive your response!
