I just purchased the Bold Photography Pro theme. I’m sorry if this is a stupid simple thing, but I’m trying to make a lightbox gallery like this one here.
I can get my gallery to arrange themselves into the pretty gallery formation thanks to Catch Gallery, but I can’t figure out how to make it so that when you click on the images, it opens the slideshow lightbox like it does in the link above. Right now, my pictures don’t link to or do anything when you click on them.
I went to follow the instructions on setting up the Lightbox according to Catch Themes, 2. Customization, “How to enable/disable Zoom, Lightbox and Slider effects for WooCommerce Product Gallery?”
The instructions say, “Go to “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => WooCommerce Options”
The Problem: I don’t have a “WooCommerce Options” button when I open Theme Options.
Now, I’ve been driving myself nuts all day trying to find where to activate this WooCommerce thing. Was it not downloaded when I downloaded the theme? I thought that was a plugin for processing purchases on your website. What does it have to do with making a lightbox gallery? What am I missing here?
Thanks in advance for your time.July 26, 2019 at 12:16 am #178065
@zmori:Hello zmori, Please follow this steps, you don’t have to install WooCommerce to show the light box feature in Catch Gallery.
step 1: Go to=> Dashboard=> Catch Gallery=>Enable Carousel => Check to enable slider feature(This feature helps to display the image in slideshow light box)
step 2: Go to=> Customize=> Theme Options=> Gallery=> Select the Page/Post you have created the gallery
step 3: Save and published it
Let me know if this helps you out!

@sapana: Hey there, Sapana.
I followed your instructions. Enable Carousel is checked. I’m calling a post to my home page via the Theme Options Gallery settings. My galleries still don’t have a carousel when you click on them. 🙁
Here’s a screenshot of my Catch Gallery settings in case you find something I missed.
Here’s a screenshot of my Theme Option Gallery settings as well.
I’d rather not have this gallery on my home page, much less, everywhere on my site, but this seems to be the only option via the Theme Option Gallery settings. I want the gallery on one of my posts/pages, just like in the demo.
If you need it, I made a post for you on my website with the attempt at the Lightbox gallery below the header so you can see how the images aren’t doing anything when you click them.
Thanks again for the help!July 29, 2019 at 1:20 am #178219July 29, 2019 at 4:34 pm #178286
That did it! Thank you so much!
For anyone else wanting to do this that can’t load Sapana’s video, this is where I was going wrong: instead of trying to add a “Gallery” block, you have to add a “Classic” block and add the media there. I wrote this guide up.
How to create a stand alone gallery on a page or post with a Catch Gallery slideshow/lightbox.
Step 1: Add New Page/Post
Step 2: Add a Block => Select “Classic”
Step 3: Select “Add Media”
Step 4: On the left side of the window that opens, select “Create Gallery”
Step 5: Select the pictures you want in the gallery.
Step 6: Click the blue button in the bottom right corner, “Create a new gallery”
Step 7: Adjust the settings on the right side of the screen under “Gallery Settings” to your liking. The “Link To” field should remain on “Attachment Page”
Step 8: Click “Insert Gallery”
Step 9: Publish your page/post.
Step 10: Enjoy your lightbox gallery. 🙂
