No lightbox for mobile

edited June 9, 2017 in SmugMug Customization

Hey there,

I found out that when the lightbox is set to "off" and the info text is set to "off" as well, there is still a grey shaded box when viewing the images on a mobile. It is only visible in landscape format and it comes and goes when you tap the image. Also there is no text in this box. Its just a 50% opacity grey.

An image is attached.

Does anyone know why this is occurring and how I can turn this off if possible?

    Hey Chris,

    I am not sure what you mean by saying that the lightbox is turned OFF - there is no possibility at the moment turn the lightbox off in your galleries. The dark background that appears in mobile version of your site - in landscape mode is the bacground for the icons that appear below your image - so they stand out even on very light images. You can disable it using CSS code.

    You may try using this code for it:

    @media screen and (max-width: 800px)
    .sm-lightbox-panel {
        background: none !important;

    I hope this helps.
