Lightbox leaves whitespace next to images

Hello,

I am using a plugin for my Wordpress site called FooBox which puts various elements in lightboxes.  The size of the lightbox should conform to the size of the image, but instead the images have extra white space either to the sides or on the bottom.  I have made sure that the images are small enough to fit in the monitor size.

A page can be viewed at the url below. Near the bottom, the Photo Galleries and Accessories sections are having the issues.  I have attached a screenshot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In looking at your galleries, Foobox is loading each image in an iframed page:

However, when looking at the regular foobox demo, the images are not loaded in iframes:

It appears that maybe you are creating your galleries in a way that is not compatible with Foobox. I believe foobox is sizing responsively to the entire page loaded in the iframe, instead of to the images.

Since foobox isn't an image gallery system, I suspect the image gallery plugin you are using has a setting you should be looking into, for dictating if iframes should be used in the gallery.

Hey Tia,
You can try out other alternatives to foobox (foobox seems slow to me) like JackBox, Flare, MetroBox etc.

Hi,

I've have checked all the settings for the plugin itself and any others I thought may be affecting it, but could not find any.  I will keep trying and report back when I can at least narrow down the iframe issue.

It looks like links are opened into an iframe by default when you specify "foobox" as both class and target on your gallery links:

Success!  You are my new hero! Thank you so much.  I went into each image and changed the FooGallery option back to Default instead of Foobox and it works perfectly.  You saved both my job and my sanity. :)
