I’ve been using this plug to create landing and squeeze pages because it works the best. It’s clean and it always works as apposed to other devoted pop-up plugins that always have something lacking or buggy.
But ran into the problem on some pages where Lightbox Plus Colorbox (LBP) just wouldn’t work.
After hours of troubleshooting, a last ditch test revealed the issue…
Since I have a JQuery library for handling landing pages for leaving, clicking, scrolling, etc.. Since I use LBP for pop-up forms for lead generation, I didn’t have a link to show the LBP pop-up on the page – just the jQuery triggers. As a final test I put a link to show the pop-up and everything magically works!
So the moral to the story, if LightBox Plus isn’t working with your custom jQuery, you need add a link reference on the page so it will attach the event handlers. Just a small hidden link like this somewhere on the page:
<a class="lbp-inline-link-1" href="#">.</a>
That was easy!

This One Change Will Speed Up Windows Explorer 1000%!
We’ve been using Windows since it was born and there’s always one thing in common when a new version comes out – Microsoft, as well as any other software company, tries to make it better by adding more “stuff” to the operating system to make it seem more “valuable”. As CPU processors kept doubling in speed over the decades, so have operating systems (Windows, Mac) and applications. Can you imagine running Windows 95 on a modern computer and how fast that would be?
If you’re a regular user of Windows 7, Windows 8 (and even back to Windows Vista), you may have noticed that it takes an extraordinary amount of time to do something as simple as opening a folder of photos, music or other digital content. After a while you start to think that it’s normal and you may have to upgrade your system again!? So why do Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows 8 take so long to open folders of digital content? It was decided by Microsoft (and this goes for any software company) that it would be cool to show you more information about your digital content. As in, “hey, wouldn’t it be cool if we showed users what size their pictures were and where it was taken!”; or “I think everyone needs to know how long their MP3 songs are, what ‘bps” rate they were recorded at, the track number, artist name, etc.”
Having been working with WordPress for sometime and experimenting with cache solutions a while ago. We decided to revisit what solutions were available to speed up some heavy themed WordPress websites and find the best WordPress cache plugin for our purposes. The two big contenders are WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache, so naturally we wanted to play with them first. Unfortunately, it was met with dire results. After activating each plugin (independently) and loading the website in an incognito window to make sure there was no existing cache contamination, each plug-in resulted in a Server Error 500 error. That’s not a good sign. We were able to get W3 Total Cache to work by disabling the Page Cache, but what good is that? After spending more time than what it should take to try and figure out what was causing the error, we came across another plugin that was being mentioned more often. …
