This script is for PERSONAL use only!
You are free to install this script for yourself, but it is not allowed to be used wiki-wide (e.g., in MediaWiki:Common.js or MediaWiki:Wikia.js), as it would violate FANDOM's Terms of Use.
(See the customization policy)

The NoImageLightbox script disables Wikia's Lightbox loader in the Oasis skin so that clicking on an image takes you to its File: page, as is the default functionality of the Monobook skin.

Videos use the same lightbox loader, but default expected behavior for this script is that videos should not be affected and should continue to play normally on content pages.

To go to the File: page of a video, right-click on the video and choose the Open link in new tab option instead.



As of 20 April 2013, this script includes an option to completely disable the lightbox for videos as well as images. To enable this option, set window.NoImageLightbox.novideo to the value true during installation, like so:

window.NoImageLightbox = { novideo: true };

Using configuration options with FANDOM Open Source Library scripts

The instructions on this page describe how to use configuration options with a script. Here on the FANDOM Open Source Library, many scripts provide optional configuration settings as a mean to alter or enhance the default behavior of the script. When installing configuration options in your JavaScript file, please note that they need to go above the import statement in order to work — unless the directions say otherwise. In case MediaWiki:ImportJS is used to load the scripts, it will be executed last.

Configuration options load too late, don't work
// 1. AjaxRC import statement
// 2. AjaxRC configuration option
var ajaxRefresh = 30000;
Proper placement of configuration options
// 1. AjaxRC configuration option
var ajaxRefresh = 30000;
// 2. AjaxRC import statement
