Lightbox doesnt work: Image gallery using drupal: Lightbox2, CCK, Views, ImageCache

Hi,
We have a website with an image-gallery:
http://relaunch.ethik.or.at/fotogalerie

This was ceated using CCK imagefield, imagecache and views. We want to use Lightbox2 and this module has also been activated. But somehow, when I click on the images, instead of lightbox only the image appears. What did I do wrong?
This tutorial uses a very similar approach:
http://jamestombs.co.uk/2009-03-18/create-a-simple-image-gallery-in-drupal-6-using-cck-and-views/996

I have also deactivated the Views AJAX capability, but it doesn't work there either.

Please advise. Thanks.

The problem lies in lightbox2_image_nodes function (in auto_image_handling.js)
You're calling lightbox2_init_triggers with settings which are empty
Only the first statement (with settings.trigger_lightbox_classes) is working. The rest will result in an error causing your lightbox to fail.

Correct the errors in Drupal.Settings object.

Your're creating two menus with smoothmenu.
The first is on an alement with id smoothmenu1
The second is on an element with id smoothmenu2 -> this one does not exist.

Correct this error first...

Thanks, yeah I had initialized two menus in the template for vertical menus, which I did not yet implement. I removed those lines, but lightbox behaviour has not improved.

Is your view set up to use Fields or Nodes? If it is fields you should be defining the image field in the view. In the settings for that field you can choose something like Thumbnail of image linked to Lightbox

Thanks a lot. The javascript problem, was a great hint. It is a problem of the drupal module, I guess, where I have to provide some additional arguments (Image-Description), to get the modules FileFields, CCK, ImageCache and LightBox2 running. I have to try it, haven't totally figured it out, but thanks to you I am on the right path.
